Meals, transport, medical assistance

MEALS     

Questfield aims to provide a healthy and balanced diet through a full food programme of quality meals and snacks for children 14 months and older.

Our catering company is Ansamble.

Ansamble is a company with over 35 years of international experience. Since it started, in 1978 in France, Ansamble complies with the same requirements for hygene, quality and safety in all territories, in order to offer all its customers a healthy, fresh and balanced diet. Their suppliers are carefully selected to meet the highest standards of HACCP, hygiene and quality control at all stages of production.

Questfield provides two kinds of meals at your own choosing, a regular meat menu and a lacto-ovo-vegetarian menu. The menus are nutritionally balanced, prepared by the Ansamble dietitian together with our paediatrician according to children’s age and taking into consideration the parents’ recommendations.

Meals are served in the middle of the day in a relaxed and sociable atmosphere. During meals and snack times we discuss the importance of healthy eating and encourage the children to independently help themselves.

If your child has particular dietary needs relating to a medical condition e.g. diabetes, gluten intolerance, lactose intolerance or specific allergies, the school reserves the right to request that families bring their child’s food that has been prepared according to individual needs. In order to ensure the safety of children with such conditions, please inform the Office Manager about their existence at the time of admission.

TRANSPORTATION

Questfield offers the option of transportation with the school bus. School begins as soon as your child steps onto the bus in the morning and ends when he/she gets off the bus at the end of the day. Bus transportation is door-to-door in Pipera area and surroundings and from fixed points in Bucharest – Piața Presei Libere and Pipera Subway.

The bus has seatbelts and is driven by professional English speaking drivers. All Questfield drivers are responsible individuals who like being around children.

Due to limited capacity on the bus, transportation is a long term commitment and is offered on a “first come, first served” basis.

MEDICAL ASSISTANCE

Questfield employs a paediatrician that is responsible for visiting the school every week and a permanent paediatric nurse. Our medical team is responsible for the overall well-being of the students and maintaining the school medical records. The medical record contains every visit to the Medical Office of the child with: date, symptoms and action taken. (Kept on school base)

At the start of each academic year each student is required to bring a medical certificate confirming that the student is healthy and fit to enter the school’s community.

In order to maintain up-to-date medical information of our students, you will be required to complete a Medical Form as accurately as possible at the beginning of each year and provide a copy of the vaccination record.

Our medical procedure includes daily examinations performed by the school staff  – medical staff, teachers–  regarding triage at the first sign of any symptom of any possible viral affection.

The parents that are notified of the existence of a symptom of any possible viral infection will be asked to take their child from school as soon as possible.

If the child requires urgent medical attention while under the school’s care we will, if practical and possible, obtain your prior consent. However, should we be unable to contact you, we shall be authorized to make the decision on your behalf.

Questfield reserves the right, in accordance with procedures, to circumscribe or disallow the use or administration of any medication on school premises.
