Principles

  • We believe that play is critical to the well being and healthy development of every child. Play, as well as being fun, is primarily an instinctive process through which the child begins to explore, experiment, and
  • define its environment. It is through play that a child learns a range of social, emotional, intellectual and creative skills, which helps the child become a balanced, healthy person with a positive sense of self-being and worth.
  • Our Aims
  • We aim to provide a warm and friendly atmosphere based on equality of opportunity, ensuring all children and their families using the Play care scheme are included and enjoy all experiences by :-
  • ~ providing a fully supervised quality scheme.
  • ~adhering to positive policies, procedures and practices.
  • ~ providing a positive and supportive environment for everyone.
  • ~ providing a safe, caring environment, free from discrimination and
  • major hazards.
  • ~ providing a varied timetable of stimulating activities .
  • ~ providing a flexible approach to planning which enables us to address
  • the needs of children and their families.
  • We achieve this by:-
  • ~ providing qualified, experienced staff who work together to ensure team work.
  • ~ listening to the comments of children and their parents.
  • ~ following strict guidelines of the Care and Social Services Inspectorate Wales and Children Act.
  • ~ Planning activities with the children in advance
  • The University of South Wales Child Care Services Department provide a safe central venue for each child’s holiday enjoyment.
  • The scheme operates from the Child Care Services Department on the University of South Wales Treforest campus. It caters for up to 14 children aged from 4-12 years old, between the hours of 8.00 a.m. to 5.15p.m from Monday to Thursday and 8.00 a.m. to 4.45 p.m. on a Friday.
  • A meal package is included within the fees which consists of a morning and afternoon snack and a cooked two course meal at midday.
  • The venue consists of a playroom, which is ideal for craft and creative activities, table toys, cookery, imaginative play and chill out areas and it will also serve as the dining area.. The venue also benefits from a large outside play area with differing play surfaces for wet play, plus ball and team games during dry days. The children will also have access to a new forest area which is close to the setting.
  • All staff at the Playcare scheme have childcare qualifications and are aware of the importance of providing age appropriate play and experiences to stimulate the children emotionally, intellectually, physically, socially and culturally.
  • At the Playcare Scheme the main language of communication is English, though staff at the scheme can offer basic Welsh if necessary. Two way communication between parents and staff will ensure that the needs of a child, whose second language is English, are met.
  • Each day circle time takes place to discuss different issues with the children such as:-
  • The daily activities.
  • Icebreakers- which gives everyone the chance to get to know each other by playing different games, encouraging the children to relax and enjoy their time with us.
  • Fire drills- the staff run through the fire drill explaining where the fire exits are and what to do if the fire alarm sounds.
  • Rules and regulations- The children have their chance to decide on what rules and sanctions they want in place, guided by staff. In doing this, the children are more likely to respect them, each other and the Playcare staff.
  • As well as providing children with space, materials and equipment to explore and create with, the staff will be running a daily programme of exciting activities, which will encourage age appropriate grouping. Daily staff routines and rotas are in place to ensure each child benefits from continuity and a wide range of experiences.
  • The activities include: Art, Textiles, Sport, Games, Cookery, Drama, Board Games, community outings and much more.
  • The activities are based on themes which have been pre-planned to ensure a variety for differing age groups, abilities and personalities. They were discussed and chosen by the children who attended the previous Playcare schemes.
  • During the admission procedures parents receive a pack. The policies and procedures can be found on our website and on the parents board. Parents must complete the relevant information about their child before leaving the child in the care of the Playcare scheme. Parental involvement is encouraged throughout the Playcare day. To ensure the parents are aware of their child’s daily experiences they will receive verbal, and if requested, written feedback on an individual slip noting their child’s experiences/meals etc for the day from staff. There will be daily notices displaying activities on the parent’s information board and newsletters at the beginning of each scheme updating parents on staffing and current issues. The daily meal information will be displayed on the menu board in the foyer area.
  • In setting these standards, we hope all children will have experience of a wide range of appropriate activities throughout the Playcare day.
  • Please also refer to the SOP for the Playcentre.

  • All forms must be completed before parents leave the child in the care of the Playcare scheme.
  • Parental involvement is encouraged throughout the Playcare day. To ensure the parents are aware of their child’s daily experiences they will receive verbal and written feedback from staff.

Equal Opportunities Policy 2014-2015

  • We aim to provide a service based on equality of opportunity, ensuring that no person at the Play care scheme; child, parent or staff member is unfavourably treated on the grounds of race , religious belief, culture, language, gender, disability, age, class, marital status or any other personal circumstance. 
  • The provision of equality in the early formative years is crucial. We recognise that the foundations of future attitudes and practices are laid in the early years, and, through good practice, ensure that children learn to value and respect one another as individuals.
  • Children of all cultures, gender or those who have a disability, need to be treated with respect to develop positive images of themselves. 
  • We aim to maximise each child’s motivation by encouraging his or hers sense of being included personally, racially and culturally in all aspects of the learning experience.
  • This is achieved through:-
  • Staff attitudes- respecting and treating each child as an individual.
  • Play resources- we provide a wide range of multicultural, non stereotypical resources. Our books, toys, jigsaws, posters and games promote positive images of disabilities, are non stereotyping and show the multi-ethnic society that Britain is today.
  • Anti sexist attitudes.
  • Challenging remarks- negative remarks are challenged, they can be deeply hurtful to children and lead to feelings of inferiority.
  • Celebrating all religious occasions.
  • Learning the positive aspects of bilingualism, being able to be culturally biased and subjective, to avoid stereotyping and making misinformed decisions about a child’s needs.
  • Liaising with outside bodies.
  • The staff at the Play care scheme value the rights and opinions of the parents of the children in our care. This is achieved through:-
  • An open door system- all parents are welcome throughout the day.
  • An information forum meets twice a year and all parents are invited to attend this meeting.
  • Information boards/letters- enabling the parents to be continually informed about events etc.
  • Liaising with outside bodies- providing information on childcare provisions within the area.
  • The staff at the Play care scheme are professional people, each of whom have something different to offer through experiences and life’s challenges. Staff are given the necessary support and guidance to ensure a shared response that best meets the
  • needs of themselves, the children and their parents.
  • This is achieved through:-
  • Being respected and valued as an individual who has something to offer.
  • Staff development- discussing personal issues and necessary individual training needs.
  • Staff meetings- working together as a team.
  • Setting goals and being able to achieve them.
  • In setting these standards, we hope to achieve equality for all, and opportunities for everyone.

Behaviour Policy 2014-2015

Physical punishment of any sort is absolutely forbidden, as is depriving a child or forcing a child to consume food/drink and humiliating or frightening a child. The use of violence or abuse of a child by a staff member will result in disciplinary procedures. (Taken from the Children Act 1989).

Staff have developed consistent, positive strategies by an agreed framework of basic rules for discipline and acceptable behaviour within the Playcare scheme. The rules should be understood and accepted by children, parents/ guardians. Staff will be expected to use positive techniques when dealing with children. Reinforcing acceptable behaviour by offering praise, and dealing with undesired behaviour in a way that does not humiliate, embarrass or hurt the child in any way or form. The behaviour management techniques used must be appropriate to the age and developmental stage of each individual child. If there is cause for concern written records will be kept, to inform parents and for staff to monitor an individuals behaviour.

When dealing with undesirable behaviour, staff should ensure that the child is made to understand what we feel is "undesirable" about the action, not the child itself. It is of the utmost importance that all staff ensure a child’s self confidence and self-esteem are positively developed during their time at the Playcare scheme.

Discipline is a shared process and the staff will always inform the parents if the child has been disciplined during the day. Consistency towards the children is essential, with all children being treated equally.

Bullying Policy

  • The children discuss issues such as bullying and other behaviour during icebreaker time in the morning. The children decide on rules they would like to see in place during their time in the Play care scheme, and they decide on what they think is appropriate action to
  • take. We believe that this empowers and gives the children ownership of the Play care scheme; the children are then likely to keep to their own rules rather than those imposed on them.
  • We respect each other’s opinions and sit down and consult with each other to agree to a list of rules that we all feel comfortable about. These rules include discouraging discrimination such as racism, sexism and people with specific needs. Boys and girls
  • are encouraged to take part in all our activities, but will not be forced to do anything they feel uncomfortable doing.
  • Our promise to all our parents and children is that we will:
  • Take bullying seriously
  • Investigate the incident fully.
  • Interview the bullies and victims separately.
  • Interview witnesses if any.
  • Make sure there is always a member of staff to provide support.
  • Decide on appropriate action
  • Inform parents/carers of any incidents.
  • It will be instilled into all staff that they should always believe, encourage and praise children who approachthem.
  • Information will be passed from one member of staff to another so that all staff will be aware of problems that have taken place.
  • Every child has the right to feel safe and secure in our Play care scheme. We are committed to providing your child/ren with this right, and hope that this policy along with committed staff will combat any problems.

Holiday Playcare scheme

Specific Needs Policy 2014-2015

The University of South Wales holiday Playcare Scheme, in compliance with the ‘Code of practice on the Identification and Assessment of Special Educational Needs' from the LEA, care for children with SEN and understand the need to provide the greatest possible access to a broad and balanced care and education.

Our principles are:

The needs of all children who may have SEN either throughout, or part of, their

time in our facility must be addressed.

Children with SEN require the greatest possible access to a broad and balanced education and have access, where possible, to the full range of activities available in the Playcare Scheme.

Children with SEN including children with statements of SEN, should, where appropriate and taking into account the wishes of the parents and the child, be educated alongside their peers.

The knowledge, views and experience of parents are vital. Effective assessments and provision will he secured where there is the greatest possible degree of partnership between parents, their children, the Playcare Scheme, LEA's and other agencies. If necessary, progress records are completed by the keyworker on a weekly basis.

We Aim to:

Identify and assess as early as possible and as quickly as is consistent with thoroughness.

Train staff.

Where developmental delay is recognised,parents will be made aware of our concerns, the child will be closely observed over a reasonable length of time and notes are made.

Following consultation, parents will be sensitively informed of the observations by the Child Care Services Manager.

Parents will always have access to all records being kept on their child.

If a child has a chronic illness or disability, information about the condition should be known and understood by all staff via discussion and completion of forms by parents. The physical environment will be adapted to suit the needs of the children where necessary. This will also include privacy when intimate care is being provided for the children.

When a child has SEN, other specialist staff are often involved. It is essential that parents and staff are aware of what has been agreed and monitor the implementation of a special learning programme or treatment.

Close liaisons and good working relationships between specialist workers and the child's Keyworker is essential in the need to set up a joint process for assessment and the keeping of records.

Specialist play equipment may be necessary if a child has a SEN. It may also be necessary to provide a one-to-one worker. Specialist agencies will be contacted if necessary with regard to the loan of equipment and funding for an additional worker.

3. Arrangements

  • In general the underlying principle adopted by the University is to avoid administering medicines wherever possible and to encourage parents or guardians to ensure medicines are administered to children before arrival at the University and after they have left. In circumstances where this is not possible, for instance where it would be detrimental to a child’s health if the medicine were not administered during the time that the child was in the care of the University, then the written consent of the parent(s) or guardian(s) must be obtained.
  • Written consent must be obtained using the form :- Record of medicine administered to an individual child and no child under the age of 16 years should be given medicine without the written consent of the parent(s) or guardian(s).
  • In respect of those children who have long-term medical needs then a Health Care Plan must be drawn up. Such a plan will include details of the medical condition, contact details including emergency contacts, medical needs and care requirements.
  • Non prescription medicinesshould not be administered, although in exceptional circumstances these may be administered by University Health Centre nursing staff in accordance with the Treatment Guide and Administration of Medicines Protocol agreed with the University Medical Officer.
  • N.B. The Child Care Services Managers may in exceptional circumstances agree to administer non prescription medicines such as teething gels, cream etc but only with the written parental authorisation, instruction and supply of medication.
  • Where consent has been obtained for the administration of medicines by University staff then the following will apply
  • Only authorised staff may administer medicines
  • Such authorised staff must be trained to an appropriate standard in accordance with the National Service Framework for Children, Young Persons and Maternity Services and they must not administer medicines until training has been received. A record of the training should be made using Staff training record-administration of medicines.
  • The member of staff administering medicines should check
    • Child’s name
    • Prescribed dose
    • Expiry date
    • Written instructions provided by prescriber on the label or container
