required to undergo Criminal Record Bureau Checks and receive Ofsted clearance,
if they live on the premises, or are present whilst your child is in my care, on a regular basis.
- My family are all very supportive of my chosen
career as a Childminder and assist me in any way they can. If they are at home
when I am minding they all interact well with the children. I encourage them to
join in with some of the activities and the children respond well to them.
- Although they will have been thoroughly checked to
be suitable to be around young children, I would like to reassure you that at
no time is anyone, other than myself, and approved childminding assistants,
allowed to help the children with their intimate care, i.e. nappy changing and
toileting. This is to protect your child and to protect my family from any
possible allegations of abuse.
- I will not leave your child alone with any adult
unless they have had an enhanced CRB check; are childcare professionals known
to the children or whom parents have previously given permission for; or are
trusted local authority officers i.e. police officers, social workers.
