Children's Centres No Mobile Phones or Cameras Policy

No Mobile Phones

We kindly ask that all families attending any Children's Centre in Hounslow, do not use their mobile phone and/or cameras in any of the play sessions.

For emergency calls, please leave the play room with your child and use your phone in the designated area.

To help keep all children that attend Children’s Centres safe, we insist that parents and carers do not use their mobile phones on the premises of any Children’s Centre in Hounslow. This helps staff to ensure that no one is using a phone within the room to take photographs. If you need to make or receive an emergency call, please leave the play room with your child/children and use your phone outside.


 Why is this important to us?

  • Some children at Children’s Centres may be survivors of domestic violence and been re-housed in Hounslow. If the perpetrator can identify where they now live through a photograph or video taken at a CC that is put on social media, they may be put at risk of harm
  • Some children at Children’s Centres may be in the care system as looked after children. The risk to them is the same as mentioned above
  •  To ensure that parents/carers and children gain the most out of our sessions

 Please help us keep all children safe!
