In the setting there should never be any unauthorized person. If a visitor comes into the setting it’s important for that person to sign in the visitor’s book. It’s also important for that visitor to wear a visitors badge so everyone in the setting is aware that the visitor is authorized. If I or the staff seen a visitor in the building without a badge on then it’s important for me to challenge the visitor. For example asking where they are going or what room do they need to get to, therefore if they do not know you should know that something isn’t right and to take the visitor away from the children.
