Might not be totally relevant, but the NCMA do a form especially to cover childminders who baby sit in the child's home. NCMA also cover Nannies too. From memory it's a bit of a tick-list risk assessment along with all the appropriate details and information. The childminder insurance is still valid.

 

Maybe PSLA have a similar form?

We recently wrote a 'babysitting' agreement for the parents - think it basically says its nothing to do with us??

We are in the process of drawing up a letter for parents about this. We intend to point out the benefits for parents, children and staff but also to state very clearly that the agreements are strictly a private arrangement between the parents and the babysitter. We will be pointing out that we do not take responsibility for the staff member outside of the preschool, and that staff may not always be available. I can see huge benefits for everyone involved and we are lucky that our parents are respectful of our private lives and sensible about making arrangements in general.

I think that it can be great if the children are babysat by people they know well. However, I worry about insurance - the staff members do not have public liability insurance and so would be personally liable for all sorts of issues.

 

Morton Michel do a nanny/babysitting insurance too.

I had a safeguarding audit and she highlighted that it would need to be in place for the change in September. I already have a social networking one so she was pleased thats in place as they'll want that one too.

Sadie, it has not been published yet so no body knows exact;y what it says. It may well be that a 'babysitting' policy will only

be a guideline and not statutory. I'm still not too sure why the EYFS would state you need a babysitting policy.
