Sample childcare policies

If you're running or working in a childcare setting - either as a self-employed childminder, a nanny in a family home, or in a reception class or nursery, you'll need to know what policies and procedures are in place to support your work.

Here at PACEY, we've created a full range of sample policies and procedures that you can customise to suit your setting. There are also hints and tips on how to write extra policies and procedures that might be specific to your business.

Because regulations are different, there are policies for childminders in Wales, and for childcare professionals in England.

Our sample policies and procedures cover, among other areas:

  • Accidents, injuries, illness, medicine and health
  • Lost or uncollected child
  • Data protection to keep you in line with GDPR
  • Inclusion
  • Complaints
  • Behaviour management 
  • Special educational needs
  • Safeguarding and child protection
  • Food and drink
