Policies and procedures

As a childcare provider I find it is especially helpful to have a framework of guidelines laid down to
explain to prospective parents they way I work with the children.

When a new family come to visit I give them a prospectus with all my Policies in to look through. 
I find that this lays some ground rules and helps parents understand my views and practices 
concerning child care.

The Policies and Procedures I have are:

Accident and Emergency  Policy

Alcohol and other substance Policy
