    It's a good idea to get things done now because when you start working you might not have time!!

    Your pre-reg course should be giving you lots of advice about how to put your files together.

    I've just put a link in your other post about policies and procedures that might help you.

    Good luck!

    Yes it is lots to do. Better roll up your sleeves and start to write your policies ,risk assesment etc
    In my first inspection I had almost all policies and risk assesment done, sefty lockers attached, smoke alarms working, tidy cables, first aid kit, fire blanket, safe garden etc everything to show them that your house is safe for children.
    Take it easy and do it gradually you still have plenty of time to get ready
    Good luck
