The International School Nido de Aguilas

Child Safeguarding

At Nido, we are committed to safeguarding and promoting the well-being of our students. All students are entitled to an environment that is safe and secure where they can learn, develop, and thrive. Each one of us has a duty of care to actively seek help for students when abuse or neglect is suspected.

At Nido, we have taken the following measures for child safeguarding:

  • Annual training on child protection awareness and procedures.
  • Background checks: Nido has an annual vetting process for all employees and seeks confidential references for all new employees.
  • Reporting and Responding: Nido has clear procedures for reporting and responding to child protection concerns, in compliance with the Chilean Ministry of Education, as well as other relevant international best practices. Additionally, Nido collaborates with external specialists and other local authorities, as necessary.
  • Designated Safeguarding Lead (DSL): Nido has a DSL who coordinates the efforts of the Nido Safeguarding Committees and oversees child safeguarding at Nido. 
  • Regular Audits and Reviews: Our commitment to child safeguarding is an ongoing process and we regularly review and update our practices, protocols, and procedures. 

Any questions about Safeguarding at Nido can be directed to the DSL at
