Policies & Procedures
POLICIES & PROCEDURES
A Childminder must develop and review policies, procedures and statements. Policies, procedures and statements standardise the Childminder’s approach to implementing best practice, support communication with parents and ensure compliance with the regulations, if applicable.
A Childminder’s policies and procedures should represent their individual service and reflect their childminding service as a ‘home from home’ to the children and families in their care.
COMMUNICATION OF POLICIES, PROCEDURES AND STATEMENTS
Policies, procedures and statements including any updates, should be communicated and available to parents and guardians. Parents and guardians confirm and sign that they have read and accepted the policies, procedures and statements of the service.
Templates and samples are available from your local CCC on request to support Childminders in developing or revising their own set of required policies, procedures and statements.
For further information, please request a copy of Childminding Sample Policies and Procedures which are available from your local CCC.
