    haven't read this whole thread but have you checked out the free EYFS software - you can google or access through childsplaymanager.com. It gives you a record for each child, by age range on pull down menus and then by area of learning. It gives you all the expected goals and you can type your evidence underneath. Then you just print the reports as and when you want.

    It's great.

    I've just had Ofsted round for the pre-reg visit. It is helpful to have some of the main policies ready, especially Safeguarding. I was asked a lot of questions and she was happy that I referred to my paperwork.

    Oh I do love this site
    I've been meaning to sort out my policies for ages now and seen as I have the day off today, I'll do it today

    Does anyone have any dividers for the Every Child Matters sections? or know where I can get them from?

    Do you do a standard policy handbook for all children and just write n/a on the ones that don't apply to the children the handbook is for or do you do a handbook and just not include those policies not needed?

    Sorry if I confuse you with this question. Tried to put it a different way but I even confused myself!!

    Question Re: IDEAS FOR YOUR POLICIES AND PROCEDURES - WHERE TO PUT THEM?

    This list is very comprehensive, would having this many policies not put parents off? Do they really want to read a novel before deciding if you are the right person?
    I have written 10 so far, and am just so confused as some people have so many I wouldn't know where to start where others have just a few pages worth? As a parent to an 18 month old I have visited childminders and nurseries and have never been shown more than a handful?
