Here it is!  The long awaited Childminder Support Pack, which will help you to evaluate your current practises alongside the new EYFS Statutory Framework, in preparation for its implementation in September 2021.


So, what can you expect from this Childminder Support Pack?   

It is not a replacement for the new framework, a paraphrased version or a summary of the changes telling you what you need to do.   That would be an insult to you and your professionalism; because you can just download the framework yourself and you already know what you’re doing from day to day.   What you will get from this epic 114 page pack is the opportunity to evaluate the different aspects of your business, all the while using the new Statutory Framework as reference, so during this process you will get to know it and you’ll feel prepared for September 2021.   I will help you to achieve this by using my knowledge of the EYFS, personal experiences and the evaluation tools that I created, which will lead you to write action plans for yourself.   I have written this pack in such a way that I hope you feel like I am sitting with you, guiding you through each part.
