As a childminder I intend to create an environment in which children are safe from abuse, and in which any suspicion of abuse is promptly and appropriately responded to. The welfare of the child is paramount.
All those who come into contact with children and families in their everyday work, including people who do not have a specific role in relation to child protection, have a duty to safeguard and promote the welfare of children.
During my Registration to become a childminder I had to have certain checks carried out, this is to check my suitability as a childcare provider. I have had a CRB check (criminal records bureau) and also a medical report from my GP.
