Our Policies & Procedures:                                 

Policies last updated October 2017

As part of the Early Years Foundation Stage framework, which is the national framework that we legally must follow, we are required to have policies & procedures. They serve as a reminder of what we, as a group, are aiming to achieve, how we plan to meet the Framework and generally how we operate. This shows that we are dedicated to maintaining a high standard for our pre-schools. A copy of the policies can be found within the Operational Plan (which is just inside the entrance area of both pre-schools) or simply ask any member of staff or committee.
