Uncollected child

In the event that a child is not collected by an authorised adult at the end of the session, the setting puts into practice agreed procedures. These ensure the child is cared for safely by an experienced and qualified practitioner who is known to the child. We will ensure that the child receives a high standard of care in order to cause as little distress as possible.

All reasonable attempts are made to contact the parents or nominated carers.

The child does not leave the premises with anyone other than those named on the registration form or in their file.

If no one collects the child after thirty minutes of  a session ending and there is no one who can be contacted to collect the child, we apply the procedures for uncollected children.

We contact our local authority children’s social services care team.
