Personal Data Protection

We Know How to Keep A Secret

At Little Munchkins we have an open access policy in relations to accessing information about the nursery and parents own children. This policy is subject to the laws relating to data protection and document retention.

Parents are welcome to view the policies and procedures of the nursery which govern the way in which the nursery operates. These may be viewed at any time when the nursery is open, simply by asking the nursery manager or on the nursery website. The nursery manager or any other staff member will also explain any policies and procedures to parents/ carers or use any other methods to make sure that parents understand these in line with the nursery’s communications policy.

Parents are also welcome to see and contribute to all the records that are kept on their child. However, we must adhere to data protection laws and, where relevant, any guidance from the relevant agencies for child protection

As we hold personal information about staff and families, we are registered under data protection law with the Information Commissioner’s Office. All parent, child and staff information is stored securely according to the requirements of data protection registration including details, permissions, certificates and photographic images. We will ensure that all staff understands the need to protect the privacy of the children in their child care as well as the legal requirements that exist to ensure that information relating to the child is handled in a way that ensures confidentiality.

The nursery records and documentation are kept and stored in accordance with minimum legal archiving requirements. If there are any questions regarding the business handling of personal or public data, please feel free to email us.
