The Nursery is fully accredited with the Luton Safeguarding Children Board, The Nursery has adopted strict security policies and we operate procedures as rigorously as we are able.
Rigorous recruitment procedures are in place, which fully meet the Luton Safeguarding Children Board requirements.
The Manager and 2 Deputy Leaders are trained to Level 2 Safeguarding. All members of staff are trained to Level 1 Safeguarding. All Safeguarding courses are updated every 3 years.
During nursery outings, the staff - child ratio is set higher than required, with risk assessments always completed before a trip or outing is undertaken.
Any collection of children from Nursery will only be allowed by an authorised contact: nominated person/persons. Passwords and identification procedures are employed should an unauthorised person be required to collect a child.
All visitors / any maintenance workers are required to sign in and out. They are closely supervised throughout the duration of their visit. At no time will they be left unaccompanied with any of our children.

At Training Depot Day Nursery we believe that play is a fundamental element of each child's learning and development. We have a wide range of toys and equipment to encourage your child to learn through exploration, discovery and enjoyment.
A range of toys and equipment are displayed at the children's eye level which enables every child to make their own choices.
Drawing, painting and modelling.
Art, craft and cookery.
Music, movement, instruments, singing and dancing - activities featuring the children's work are performed. We have extra curriculum activities including sessions with Jo Jingles, Sing & Sign, Active Luton, Luton Football Club delivering football coaching sessions.
Dressing up, role play, story telling with acting and drama play - including concerts for parents.
Indoor and outdoor safe and secure, supervised play areas are checked regularly. Equipment is also risk assessed. Training Depot Day Nursery staff arrange educational visits and trips, often with parents accompanying us. Parent participation is encouraged during many nursery sessions, particularly when related to the theme being delivered.
Enjoying such busy days, we are aware infants and younger children require regular sleep and rest. Quiet areas are set aside for relaxation and rest. These are used when children require some rest time.
"Keep up the good work and thanks for the input you've given to my children's schooling experience."
