View Full Version : Starting childminding checklist - help needed please

29-11-2012, 10:27 PM
Hi everyone, I am recently registered and just want to make sure that the checklist I wrote sounds ok and I haven't missed anything out...apologies in advance for the ocd'ness of it :blush:

1) Get registered
2) Get Public Liability Insurance
3) Organise paperwork of contracts, child record forms, attendance register, accident, incident & medication folder and visitors book
4) Start an accounts book and keep all receipts in order
5) When an under school age mindee starts, get a learning journey and basic daily diary ready for them

On a daily basis, should I do the following:

1) Quick risk assessment before mindees arrive
2) When they knock at the door, check the time to write down in the attendance register
3) Fill in daily diary for under school age mindees throughout the day detailing nappy changes / toilet time, meal times, general mood
4) If any visitors come to the house, get them to sign the visitors book
5) When Parents come to collect, make a note of the time for attendance register

Is there anything that I'm missing?

Thanks, Jo x

Grow an extra set of eyes and hands
Grow an extra thick skin, preferably with extra layers
Borrow, or grow, a pair of hairy ones
Start questioning yourself when previously you were absolutely clear

And welcome to the world of childminding :thumbsup:

get some energy drinks and forget about hot drinks
grow an extra pair of eyes and a extra pair of hands
learn the words to every nursery rhyme
forget about a tidy house
learn to love glitter
enjoy every moment :thumbsup:
