Policies & Procedures

My first responsibility and priority is towards the children in my care. As an Ofsted registered childminder I am required to keep several policies and procedures in relation to how I run my business detailing how I will care for the children, being mindful of their individuality and relevant legislation by taking regular training courses and by reading relevant publications for example, Who Minds?, Practical Pre-School, The Foundation Stage Profile Handbook together with Safeguarding Children practices. I am a member of PACEY - the Professional Association for Childcare and Early Years who have a very informative website and lots of interesting resources.

A policy is a written statement about how I work in one area of my practice.

A procedure details the actions I will take to carry out the policy.   My policies and procedures are listed below:-

1.    Safeguarding Children Policy (including handout on bruising in children who are not independently mobile)

2.    Equal Opportunities and Admissions Policy (including Special Educational Needs)

3.    Complaints, Concerns and Compliments Policy

4.    Accident and Emergency Policy (including fire safety) and a list of my first aid kit

5.    Medication Policy

6.    Confidentiality/Data Protection Policy

7.    Behaviour Policy (including bullying)

8.    Non-collection Policy

9.    No Smoking, alcohol or other drugs Policy

10.   Mobile phone, camera, internet and social networking policy

11.   Food and Drink Policy

13.  Non-attendance Policy

14.  Safety on Outings (includes lost or missing child)

15.  Animal Policy

16.  Illness and Infectious Diseases Policy
