THE REASON FOR POLICIES, DOCUMENTS AND PROCEDURES

Ofsted require that childminders and/or anyone who provides an early year provision on domestic premises holds policies, written information and procedures to help ensure that a high quality service will be provided.

The Ofsted inspector has to feel confident that the childminder/carer will ensure that the running of the practice will be a ‘safe, healthy, happy and stimulating setting’.

The most important thing is that the childminder and the child’s parents or carers form a strong relationship working together for the benefit of the child.
