    Default Paperwork "packages" are they worth buying?

    I have seen lots of packages where you buy samples or pre set up copies of childminding paperwork but are they really worth the money?

    The only thing I have done so far is my policies and I have no other paperwork set up.

    Did those who bought them found them useful in getting starting?

    personally no - thats because we are so very different in how/what we do, over the years at pre-school and now childminding I take bits that I like and adapt them - without sounding like I am selling you anything - Sarah N's ebooks are amazing which will be able to guide you in what you need/want x

    there are also tonnes of free resources to be had out there, Bromley for example. Just make sure you re-write everything to your needs, and that you dont infringe on anyones copywrite.

    I think what I need is a list of things that are required so I can do them myself in my own way. It's just knowing what is required and seeing examples so I can get my head around it all (if that makes sense)
