Childminding Safety On Outings Policy

When taking Children on Outings it is essential that proper planning is done to ensure the safety and welfare of all children involved.

I obtain written parental permission for all routine and special outings. I inform parents of any planned special trips for example to the coast or a local farm.

I ensure that I take with me everything I may need, emergency Contact cards for the children, First Aid Kit, Nappies and changing bag (if required) spare clothes, mobile phone, drinks and a healthy snack.

I have developed plans on what to do in the event of an emergency. I carry a contact card for each child, providing a photograph of them, their name and an emergency contact name and number. I have also a card on me that explains that I am a registered Childminder. I have also programmed ICE into my mobile telephone.

I will endeavour to organise outings to fit in with the needs of the children, and ensure that I have the necessary equipment and resources to keep them safe. These include car seats for all children up to 4 feet 5 inches tall, pushchairs and harnesses. In all trips in the car I will ensure each child is securely strapped into their car seat and that the maximum number of passengers for the car is never exceeded.

I will ensure that the car is properly maintained with a current MOT certificate, Tax and Insurance. I will never leave your child unattended when out, especially in the car. If I need to put more petrol in my car I will do this outside of minded hours so that I do not have to take them out on a busy station forecourt or leave them in the car whilst I pay.

If you have any concerns regarding this policy please discuss them with me.
