    Good one!

    I'd mention parents taking / using photos of children - what if they take a photo of their child with others in the background and put it on FB?

    I love the use of the pics, it reads very nicely and very informative but as mentioned you need to input about other parents using cameras

    Looks good. I love the pictures and like the way you have kept the text concise. Maybe need to think about visitors to your house (friends, partner, students, assistants?) and their phones. I trust mine to have their phones on them, but not take photos. My parents know this. Also, all my parents have given permission for their child to be photographed with other children, and those photos to be e-mailed to all children's parents.

    What about your partner and children?

    Also what about other devices that's can take photos and share on the internet, ds's tablets etc

    I like the look of the policy, friendly looking touch with the photos, clear and precise. Agree with other posters comments regarding other people and their phones or cameras.

    Def mention about policy when visitors come and their phone rings. A minder who I know was inspected last week and inspector picked up on the fact that there was no policy in place should her phone rang.

    Yup, at my last nursery parents and visitors were not allowed to answer their phones on the premises.

    I personally would add in that it is a statutory requirement to have a policy covering mobile phones etc. As everyone says I state in mine that I do not allow parents to take photos at my setting....
