This is a half day workshop which will provide basic information, guidance and best practice to assist you in understanding and complying with your statutory premises health and safety requirements.
Whether you own the premises that you run your early years and childcare provision from or rent/lease it from a landlord, the person or organisation registered with Ofsted has a LEGAL DUTY to ensure that their premises are safe, particularly with regards to high risk areas such as Fire, Electricity, Gas, Water Asbestos as well as others. The Statutory Framework for the Early Years Foundation stage also states that providers must ensure that their premises are fit for purpose and suitable and that they must comply with requirements of health and safety legislation (including fire safety and hygiene requirements), this is also a requirement under your Free Early Education Entitlement (FEEE) contract with the Council. In the worst instances, failure to meet these requirements can result in death or injury to premises users, enforcement action from the HSE and/or Ofsted and termination of your contract to deliver FEEE places with the Council.

The drop-ins will provide childminders the opportunity to come together with their children to enjoy fun activities linked to their children’s learning and development and strengthen friendships and links between other local childminders.

A Childminding Development Officer from the Council will be running the sessions which will give all childminders regular access to support they may need.
We recognise that childminders may sometimes find it difficult to access services to enrich the needs of the children they care for. Therefore, we will be inviting professionals such as Area SENCOs (Special Educational Needs Coordinators), Curriculum Leaders, Speech and Language Therapists, Health Visitors, Safeguarding Advisors, Early Help Advisors and FEEE Officers to attend some of these drop-ins. A schedule of these visits is available on the Events and Training page of The Hub: http://wftradedservices.uk/Training.

The drop-ins are free for childminders registered for the Free Early Education Entitlement (FEEE). There is a small charge of £1.50 for the first child and 50p for each additional child for those minders who are not FEEE-registered. If you would like to know more about offering the FEEE and the registration process, please visit The Hub: https://thehub-beta.walthamforest.gov.uk/commissionedtodeliverFEEE
