Supervision Requirements

Children are to be supervised at all times whilst in the setting, Roots & Wings Nursery uses three levels of supervision dependent upon the activities that are taking place:

Constant Supervision: Being with the children at all times, actively supporting them using a physical presence or playing with them directly. This level of supervision is most often required when the children are playing risky games or using equipment or materials that have a risk assessment.

General Supervision: Being in the area of the children but not having an active part in their play, being on hand to support if the children require your help or guidance. Being on hand to respond to play cues and observant of the behavior of the children. This is the most common form of supervision and allows for an overview of the play set, most commonly used with play activities that have a medium level of risk.

Low Supervision: Keeping a watchful eye on the children from a distance and making sure that they are playing safely but freely. Keeping an overview of what the children are doing.
