Hiya guys, just a quickie!

 

One of my mindees id due to terminate contracts and the EYFS states that i have to keep child records for 3 years.

 

what records in particular do i need to keep.

 

I am presuming contacts, accidents...what else (sorry but this is my first child to leave my care)

 

what do i do with observations - do i keep these or can these go to parents?

You give the observations file / learning journey or whatever you call it to the parents.

 

You have to keep the contract, accident and incident forms, attendance records, permission forms etc for 3 years for Ofsted.

 

However, you have to keep them 21 years and 6 months to comply with insurance requirements.

 

Hth :)

Hi Just a thought - but make sure you have sufficient evidence should Ofsted turn up to inspect. What childminders are finding is that they hand over all their learning journeys and then they have no evidence of how they have undertaken Learning journeys etc., I take copies of mine so that I have evidence of on going assessment, observation and planning next steps for the children in the setting
