Taking on 2024 together

👣Step 2 – Prioritise

Managing a professional childcare service is hard work and at this time of year there are often added tasks to juggle including:

🤗Welcoming new familiesand easing existing ones back into routine.

💷Managing Accounts and submitting your Tax Returns.

Checking paperwork is up to date and renewing contracts.

📅Planning and preparing activities for the year ahead.

Not to mention getting our heads around the New rules around funded childcare and ensuring we are READY for our next Inspection!

If, like me, you find your to do list overwhelming at times it often helps to take a deep breath and prioritise the most important tasks first.

We hope that the following resources will help you check off the ESSENTIALS

so as you can concentrate more on what you do best… Minding Kids!❤️


⚠️Safety First! 

The first priority of every childcare setting must be to ensure the safety and wellbeing of everyone who uses it.

You must regularly evaluate the risks in and around your childcare setting and note down actions you have taken in order to ensure your setting is safe.

If you are stuck on how to write Risk Assessments, this pack will save you hours of time:

⏰Accounts Deadline!

The clock is ticking! The deadline for completing your HMRC Self Assessment Tax Return is looming.  

If you have already completed yours well done for being organised but remember that you must pay any tax due by midnight on 31st January to avoid a penalty.

and our Accounts Pack includes all the logsheets you require along with an informative guide to help you keep accurate records of your business finances.

🔄️Contract Renewals

This time of year also sees many of us renewing contracts and reviewing our service fees.

With new rules around funded childcare coming into play you may also wish to inform parents of how this will be offered within your service.

Our Childcare Contracts Pack can help you put in place Professional Childcare Contracts for all types of childcare arrangements including Funded Care

and our Revised Fees Notification Letters templates will allow you to formally notify families of any changes to your fees structure in a professional manner.
