Animals/Pets policy

I believe that children can learn a lot from having contact with any animals, however certain procedures must be followed to ensure the safety of the children.

  • I ensure that any animals/pets on the premises do not put the health and safety or welfare of the children.
  • All animals at the premises are vaccinated.
  • All children will be taught to treat animals with respect and teach them how to handle them correctly.
  • Children will wash their hands after any contact with the animals and will be taught why.
  • Food bowls and food will be kept locked away from and children’s reach.
  • The garden will be checked every morning, before the children are permitted outside to play, to ensure that no animal has fouled it.
