Michelle's Childminding

"Quality Childcare From Newborn Upwards"

"My policies and procedures set out how I run my childcare setting"

I have a number of childminding policies in place, which meet my legal responsibilities and obligations.  They detail how my setting will be run, how I will promote the "Every Child Matters" framework , ensuring all children feel safe, achieve and enjoy, adopt healthy lifestyles, make a positive contribution and develop skills for the future and how I will deliver the EYFS's seven areas of learning and development.  


I have a detailed safeguarding policy, which must be read and understood by all parents.  Parents are required to sign and return an acknowledgement slip.


I have detailed risk assesments and a fire safety inspection has been carried out on my home by the local fire brigade.
