Although we take all precautions possible to provide a safe environment for the children accidents do sometimes happen during play. If a child is injured (a mark is left from the incident) during childcare hours an accident report will be written up describing the injury and the first aid provided. As many details as possible will be given; if another child is involved their name is not used. Parents will be notified at the end of the day and asked to sign the accident form. A carbon copy or photocopy of the accident form will be given to the parents. The other copy will be filed in the health and safety binder under the child’s name. If an accident form is completed it will be noted in the communication book.

In the case of a serious occurrence, a notification will be posted on the parent communication board outlining the details of the occurrence and the outcome.
