What information we collect 
As part of the running of a nursery we collect personal information relating to children and parents attending our setting.  This might include information such as:
  • Personal details of children, parents and others,
  • Medical information,
  • Observations and Feedback

 

How we use your information 
We use the information you give us about yourself, and your children to:
  • Help manage our care for your child,
  • Support your childs development as part of the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) framework, and
  • To meet our legal, child welfare and regulatory obligations.
We treat all information we hold about you as private and confidential.  We will not reveal any personal details or details concerning your child to anyone not connected with Barnkids, unless:
  • You ask us to reveal the information, or we have your permission to do so,
  • We are required or permitted to do so by law
  • There is a duty to the public to reveal the information, eg to the local authority, Ofsted or other regulatory bodies.
When you give us information about another person or child, you need to confirm you have the permission to provide it to us on behalf of that other person. We may process their data in line with the usages set out in this document.
We use 3rd party software providers as a part of our childcare services.  For example to document a child’s Learning Journey or to process billing information.  All data is stored securely and confidentially in our computer systems or service providers platforms, a list of which is available on request.
