Townsend Montessori Nurseries Limited has a clear, yet comprehensive policy for safeguarding children. The policy is written in accordance with guidelines given by Kent Safeguarding Children’s Board, taking into account the latest research to ensure children are safe when in our care.

The Nursery Manager is the Designated Safeguarding Lead and is supported by the Deputy Manager, alongside the Senior Management Team. The Designated Safeguarding Leads work alongside the family and a variety of agencies to ensure that the welfare of your child is paramount.

Safeguarding is of high importance throughout each day at Townsend Montessori Nurseries. Staff will work alongside parents to ensure that documentation to support this is completed. Further information regarding these processes can be found within our Safeguarding Policy and Procedure and our Parent’s Pack.

Staff within the nursery have a thorough understanding of safeguarding procedures and follow these within their daily practice, ensuring the safety and welfare of the children at all times. The nurseries are committed to supporting families and safeguarding is a priority for all staff at Townsend Montessori Nurseries Limited.
