Record Keeping
If a childminding agreement is entered into, I use a contract that is agreed by both parties and is legally binding for the duration of that contract; this is for the protection of both me as the childminder and also for the parents’ peace of mind. I keep an accident book, incident book, record of medications given, record of attendance (this complies with the child protection safeguarding guidelines) and a visitor's book. A daily record book is also kept for preschool children and babies as this can give you a good insight into your child's day.

Weekly photo share
I obtain permission from parents to take photographs for their child's EYFS development folders and also for sending to parents weekly. I use WhatsApp to send photos and it's a lovely way to see your child's week of activities and fun with their friends. I have strict policies and a permission form in our contracts to cover all areas for safeguarding.
