Cat safety issue!

Can anyone help? Our cat currently has free access to the whole house and normally sleeps in our bedroom but goes in and out of the cat flap in the kitchen at night. We have been advised to consider how we would prevent him from accessing the child's bedroom when they are sleeping due to risk of suffocation and disease.
I'm thinking that we won't be shutting the childs room door fully so that we can hear them, (and I didnt like my door shut when i was young)! Due to the layout of our (terraced) house the only options we can think of are:
1. some sort of cat proof barrier on the child's room and this may present its own safety issues even if such a thing existed.
2. Shutting the cat in the kitchen at night - he will go berserk scratching at the door to get to us!
Has anyone had this problem and how did you solve it?!
