The Early Years Foundation Stage expects group providers to have "written copies of any policies and procedures which are required, for example, to safeguard children or promote equality of opportunity."
Surrey Early Years and Childcare Service (EYCS) have written a set of guidance documents to help early years and home-based childcare settings in Surrey to create a policies and procedures folder. These documents are for guidance only and you will need to adapt them to reflect the service your setting offers. You can download the guidance below along with some other helpful documents. From time to time we update these documents, so go to the Way Ahead e-bulletin and we'll tell you when we do.
If you are a private or voluntary company or another council and you would like to use the EYCS policies and procedures guidance documents, you will need to acknowledge Surrey County Council as the owner of the original materials and get written permission to use them by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
