Create a comprehensive set of policies and procedures for YOUR professional childcare service!

Edit as you require to suit YOUR setting and individual circumstances.

When running a professional childcare service, it is important to have policies in place to ensure parents, carers, and any staff or assistants you employ, understand regulations you must conform to and are made aware of the procedures followed under certain circumstances.

Whilst it is not a legal requirement for all policies and procedures to be in written form, having a documented set of policies will ensure everyone involved in your service has the information required and will help to avoid any misunderstandings.

The templates provided in this pack will allow you to put together a comprehensive set of policies and procedures to suit YOUR setting and individual circumstances.

Provided as Microsoft Word documents all policy templates are entirely editable to modify, add to or adapt as you require.

Choose to create a complete Policies & Procedures Booklet, perfect for saving as finished PDF document that can be easily emailed to parents each time you edit or update… OR use the individual policies and pages if you prefer to keep each file separate.

    Documents opening as Read Only files?

    Some antivirus programs may protect you from potentially unsafe files by opening them read-only. You can check the file properties by right-clicking on the file and choosing Properties. If the Read-only attribute is checked, you can uncheck it and click OK.

    Alternatively, it can be a good idea to keep a master copy of any downloaded files so as you can always refer back to the original if necessary. By using the ‘Save As’ option you can create a fresh copy of the document which you will then be able to edit as required.

     

    Policy Links

    The full booklet templates for Scotland, England and Wales include a table with references to the relevant standards / outcomes. Minding Kids has listed outcome statements as we felt appropriate, however you may wish to edit the reference tables to your own interpretation.
