At Little Acorns we take the safeguarding of children very seriously. Safeguarding is weaved into everything we do from snack procedures to cleaning, risk assessments to staff training, accident forms to attendance records. It covers all things health and safety through to child protection.
Many of our policies are related to safeguarding children in some form. Our main safeguarding policy is viewable on the About Us/Policies tab.
