View Full Version : Thinking of running a childminding group

19-04-2012, 09:48 AM
Hi guys,
Myself and a fellow minder are contemplating starting our own group. We can use the caretakers house which is attached to our local school and this is ideal. The people who are letting us use the house are from the local childrens centre and have told us there is a lot of paper work involved.
They want risk assesments done - which we will do anyway.
Policies - can we adapt our own to suit?
A profile based on the children that will use our group.
House rules...needing ideas for the use of the house, can this be similar to what i have for home?
Attendance register
I can't think of anything else that we can put in this file..
Paperwork doesn't come naturally to either of us so any help would great. The lady who is letting us have the group has already said she is too busy to help us with the file. :panic:

Hi, do you have an early years team? They should have some paperwork that they could adapt to suit your dropin, or another children's centre dropin group and then you can adapt that maybe? another thought.. maybe something online?? good luck, can be hard work!
