Health and Safety

Buttercups understands that the health and safety of your child is of fundamental significance to you.

All Buttercups nurseries have named members of staff responsible for Health and Safety, SENCO (Special Educational Needs Co-ordinator), Fire Marshalling and Behaviour Management. All staff are regularly trained in our Health and Safety Policies.


Buttercups ensures that great care is taken to present meals, where the food is cut into small pieces, enabling your child to eat enjoyably and safely. For these reasons, we have our own strict regulations regarding food shape i.e. we do not serve your child whole grapes, cherry tomatoes, whole meatballs and any other foods with potential to cause difficulty in swallowing.


Our indoor and garden toys and equipment are regularly checked and maintained; if necessary they are withdrawn from play activities until they are fully secured as safe for your child.

Baby toys are sterilised regularly to reduce the risk of cross-contamination.

Your child will have their own bed linen and attention to personal hygiene is made an integral part of your child’s daily activities.


All Buttercups staff undertake regular training in paediatric first aid to ensure the safety of your child.

If your child becomes unwell whilst in our care, we will make every effort to contact you and if necessary you will be asked to come and collect your child. The nursery will inform you of any contagious / infectious illness that we are aware of. Please contact our Head Office for further details in our Terms and Conditions.
