Admissions Policy

As outlined in the EYFS Framework (revised March 2017), I am restricted to the number and ages of children that I can care for at any one time.

I am happy to take on any baby/child within my allowed numbers and will not discriminate against children or their families for reasons such as race, religion, sex or ability. However, I would like to make the following statements:

I am happy to take on children with special needs, providing I feel I can provide them with the care they need and taking into account the needs of the children already in my care. 

Although, I am registered to care for children aged 8 years and over, I do not childmind children over the age of 8 years.  My own daughters are teenagers and I expect them to be an excellent role model for the other children in my care; being polite; saying please and thank you etc.  I do not ask my daughters to care or look after minded children. I am fully responsible for all the children whilst they are in my care.

All children will be welcomed into my home and I will encourage the other children in my care to support me with this. I will request a four-week settling in period on our contract, so if you; your child or I am not happy with the arrangement, it can be terminated easily. When taking on additional children, I must take into consideration the children already in my care who are happy and settled.
