In my nursery each member of staff have a base room. in each room there will be a fully qualified and a trainee who both have a crb check, the trainee will not be left unattended. If a member of staff CRB has not came back yet they will not be able to do nappy changes until then. All members of staff must go on a first aid and food hygiene course , there are also lots of other courses that members of staff will get to go on too. For example in my room I have a little boy with severe food allergies which unfortanelty is life or death so the little boy has to have an epi pen with him at all times which is kept in his bag in my room and there is another one kept in the office. If the little boy was to have a reaction it could be a very serious situation and all members of staff should be aware of how serious it could be, which is why we all had epi pen training at work so that everyone would feel comfortable giving the epi pen if necessary fortunately he has never needed his pen, however he has had a reaction i have had to give him pireton which brings the reaction, I will then phone his mom to come and collect him straight away. There is also a few children with asthma in our nursery so we have also had asthma training. the childrens safety is my priority in nursery however accidents do happen from time to time so if a child was to have an accident i would care for the childs needs making sure they were okay, I would also have to fill out an accidident form explaining what happened and how it happened then the parents would have to sign to say they are aware of the accident. If a child was to come into nursery with a scratch or a bruise I would have to ask the parents how it happened, but if I was unsure about what the parents had told me or f the marks kept appearing I would then speak to my manager an say I have a for concerns, I would have to keep a record of the bruises the child

As part of this I also ensure the children wash their hands after going to the toilet and eating as well as covering their mouths when sneezing and coughing.…

    My goal is to prevent or reduce injuries while the children are in my care. This is important because young children are often not aware of hazards in their area. One of the ways to do this is by supervising the children at all times. You should always be able to see and hear the children. Another way I can do this is by checking the childcare environment, both inside and outside, every morning check that outlet plugs are in place, and there are no broken objects. I would also use a weekly checklist and make sure everything is in place. In the outside, I check for broken equipment or sharp objects. I am trained in emergency evacuation procedures and plans to remove all children from the classroom and/or building in the event of a tornado or fire. I ensure that all chemicals and cleaning supplies are put away out of the reach of children or stored in locked cabinets to prevent injury or poisoning.…
