            Paddling Pool Policy

Children can have great fun using a paddling pool and it can also support their development in a variety of ways. However there are safety issues when children play with water and I have therefore put the following procedures in place:

Children will never be left unsupervised with water

If a child needs the toilet then all children will come out of the pool and come inside with me

If the doorbell rings again all the children will come out of the pool and come inside with me

I will take my phone outside with me

I will take enough towels and spare clothes outside

The pool will be immediately emptied when not in use

The pool will be refilled each day when in use

I will support the children to learn about water safety

I will never make a child go into the pool if they don’t want to but will provide activities they can do in the pool area

I request that parents inform if their child has a verruca on their foot so measures can be put in place to prevent them from spreading

If toddlers and babies are in nappies I will request parents provide some form of swimming nappy to prevent the pool from becoming contaminated

Emergency procedures are in place and I maintain my first aid certificate
