Welcome to Jan's Childcare




As a childcare provider I find it is especially helpful to have a framework of guidelines laid down to explain to prospective parents the way I work with the children.

When a new family come to visit I show them a prospectus with all my Policies to look through. I find that this assists in laying down some ground rules and helps parents understand my views and practices concerning child care.

THESE MUST BE READ AND DISCUSSED IN FULL if entering into a contract. Once the contract has been signed, parents will be given a copy of my comprehensive policies to keep so they can read them and refer to them at their own convenience.  They are available at my setting for parents perusal at all times, this also applies to any of my qualification certificates.
