What insurance do nurseries need?

You can choose which insurance covers to buy based on the risks your business faces, but these are some covers that are likely to be useful for a nursery school or playgroup:

  • Public liability insurance protects you from compensation claims for injury or damage made by a member of the public. For example if a child at your nursery slipped on a spillage that you hadn’t cleaned up, their parent could make a claim against you and your public liability insurance could step in to cover the legal fees and compensation costs
  • Employers’ liability insurance is a legal requirement for most businesses that have staff, and you can be fined if you don’t have a policy. It covers claims made against you by an employee for injury or illness that’s caused by their work
  • Business equipment insurance can pay to replace or repair your business equipment if it’s lost, stolen or damaged
