Covid Action Plan


This pack is intended for childminding settings that are reopening afer a period of closure due to coronavirus. The information contained within this pack is based on the comprehensive 24 page action plan that I wrote for my own setting - it is not official advice. 


It should be seen as a template to be used to create your own action plan as it must be edited before sharing with your parents/carers.  I repeat - it's not an action plan that you can just print and distribute!  You must read through it and adapt it so that it makes sense for your setting and there are lots of highlighted sections and examples from my own setting along the way to help you achieve this!  


This Covid Action Plan  is only intended for use in the setting by the person who downloaded it and should not be distributed unless permission has been given in writing by Blue Button Childminding Paperwork.


The contents page of this action plan looks like this...
