I have adopted a series of policies which are implemented daily within the setting.  The policies are reviewed annually using contributions from parents, children, PACEY, OFSTED and other childminders where appropriate.  All policies and procedures are available upon request and will be emailed before contracts are signed.

Whilst I appreciate there are lots of policies, once read, I hope it will give you an insight into who I am, what I think is important and how I work within my setting.

The policies are in place to protect your child; you as a parent, as well as me and my family.  I am always happy to discuss these with you and, if I think it is appropriate, making any changes you feel are necessary.
