Caring For Sick Children

It will be down to my own discretion whether I can care for a sick child depending on their illness and severity, however if a child has sickness and diarrhoea parents will be called and the child will need to be away from the setting until well again.


Settling in period

Before your child starts their permanent placement I provide a settling in period to enable you and your child to visit my childcare setting.  I feel that the settling in period is important as children are entering a new unfamiliar environment. For many children it may be the first time that they have been separated from their parents for an extended period of time.

To be able to learn children need to feel comfortable, relaxed, confident and secure.  The settling in period is also important as a positive experience may influence how the child views any future transitions. 

The settling in period will be at a mutually convenient time, and the length of the settling in period will depend on the individual needs of your child.


House Rules

All children in my care will follow my house rules, which are the same rules that I use for my own children:

  • Be kind to everyone
  • Share
  • Be well mannered - say 'please' and 'thank you'
  • Speak politely to one another
  • Help to tidy toys away after playing with them
  • Include everyone in all activities/games
  • Treat toys with respect
  • Always do as you are asked




If I like it, it's mine
If it's in my hand, it's mine
If I can take it from you, it's mine
If I had it a little while ago, it's mine
If it's mine, it must never appear to be yours in any way
If I'm doing or building something, all the pieces are mine
If it looks like mine, it's mine
If I saw it first, it's mine
If you put something down, it automatically becomes mine
If it's broken, it's YOURS
