Information Sheets for Parents

Childminder Paperwork > Information Sheets for Parents

There are 2 statutory policies for the Early Years Foundation Stage - Safeguarding and Child Protection and Complaints.

In addition to the statutory policies, there are other policies which early years providers find it useful to have in writing, to share how they work with parents.

We have a range of sample Polices and Procedures and guidance which you can use to adapt to suit your particular needs and requirements.

In addition to the above policies, there are many other conversations which providers have with parents that they often wish to share in writing. now provide a series of 90 Information for Parents’ sheets. These are one page guides to support early years providers. They are not intended to create extra workload or require extra record keeping. You should adapt these sample documents to suit your setting and requirements.
