If you message me with your email address I'd be happy to send you my policies and procedures as they are. Of course they will be written for MY setting. You will need to think carefully about yours will be and be willing to change them as needed.


The most important policies are listed in the EYFS.

Honeypancakes has listed a great list for policies but these are not your isk assessments and the one sent to you by your insurance company will only cover basics (like locks/smoke alarms etc)

I'm sure there are some in the resource library ...have you had a look?

You will need to risk assess lots of things in your home....the childrens toys/your garden/security/any specific dangers?safety gates/animals/entrances and exits etc etc etc.

i'll try and find an example..... back soon

When you have your registration visit from the Ofsted inspector, you need to be ready to accept children at that point- there isn't any room for 'I'll have it in place when my first child arrives'. Hope this helps :1b
