Health and Safety
Health, safety and cleanliness are our main priorities, where we have daily safety checks to ensure the equipment is kept up to safety specification and all play equipment conforms to British Safety Standards. Therefore offering a safe and secure environment for children to keep active whilst having fun!
The safety of the child is also very important so a security gate has been placed to ensure no-one can escape!
We always have a First Aider on duty at all times and all accidents, however minor need to be reported as we keep this information for future reference when equipment maintenance is carried out. We also have someone trained in Essential Food Hygiene on duty at all times.
