At Limehouse Day Nursery children’s behaviour is managed in an appropriate way. We recognise the need to set reasonable and appropriate limits that all adults will maintain in the management of children’s behaviour. We do not administer physical punishment or punishment that causes pain or humiliation to a child. We do not use or threaten to use any punishment which could adversely affect a child’s wellbeing. We do not ever give corporal punishment or threaten to give corporal punishment to a child. At Limehouse Day Nursery we recognise the importance of adults behaviour as a role model for the children and will not allow physical or verbal abuse towards anyone on the premises. Occasionally physical intervention is necessary to avoid harm. Any occasion where physical intervention is used, will be recorded and parents are informed at the earliest opportunity.
