Policies, procedures and permission forms

These sample policies and procedures are for guidance only. They are for you to read and amend to suit your service.

It is your responsibility to keep up to date with any changes and alter your policy accordingly.

The EYFS Statutory Framework 3.3 states that:

“Childminders are not required to keep written policies and procedures. However, they must be able to explain their policies and procedures to parents, carers, and others (for example Ofsted inspectors) and ensure any assistants follow them” 

Many childminders find it useful to have a set of policies to guide their work and share with parents.

It is up to you to choose.
