As outlined in the EYFS Framework (reviewed September 2014), we are restricted to the number and ages of children that we can care for at any one time.
We are happy to take on any baby/child within my allowed numbers and will not discriminate against children or their families for reasons such as race, religion, sex or ability. However, we would like to make the following statements:
We are happy to take on children with special needs, providing I feel I can provide them with the care they need. If your child has additional needs, please discuss them with me first as I would not want to raise your expectations.
We are permitted to care for children aged 8 years and over, providing the care we provide for them doesn’t impact on the care for the children I am registered to care for.
All children will be welcomed into our home and we will encourage the other children in my care to support us with this. We will request a four-week settling in period on our contract, so if you or your child or we are not happy with the arrangement it can be terminated easily. When taking on additional children, I must take into consideration the children already in our care who are happy and settled.
