Childminding Service for 0 - 15 year old's

Outings

To keep children safe on outings whilst in my care - I will ensure that:

  • The ratio of adults to children on any outing will never be less than 1 Adult per 6 children.
  • I carry out a trial run and full risk assessment of the proposed outing
  • I obtain written parental permission for children to take part in regular, local outings whilst in my care and specific written permission for a longer or more involved outing.
  • I take essential records and equipment for each child on outings as necessary, including contact telephone numbers for parents, a first-aid kit and a mobile telephone.
  • I keep records for inspection of any vehicles in which children are transported, including insurance details and a list of named drivers.
  • I will ensure that any driver transporting children in their own vehicle has adequate insurance cover.
  • I adhere to my lost child procedure - see below..

Lost Child Procedure

Childminder and assistants will make every possible effort to prevent a child becoming lost on outings:

  • by ensuring safe supervision and continuous monitoring.
  • by teaching personal and road safety whilst out and about, including - where appropriate - who 'safe adults' are and how to contact emergency services.
  • We carry relevant contact and health details for the children currently in our care.
  • Children wear contact tags/bands that help a 'safe' adult to contact me in the event that they find the lost child first.

In the event that a child does become lost, we will:

  • Co-ordinate a thorough search of the locality and telephone the police immediately - call 999
  • Notify Parents/Guardians.
  • Contact emergency cover childminder/assistants or responsible person to collect and/or provide safe supervision of other children, until situation is resolved or parents can be contacted to collect their children.
  • Notify OFSTED
