Introduction

Outing policies Task 2- to achieve p4 I will outline the procedures and practices that I need to follow when taking children on the outing chosen in task 1. I am going to detail about planning and preparation, accompanying children on outing and emergency arrangements. Out door play and clothing policy when asking the children outside, a member of staff will check that the fields are safe and risk free. It's important to take the register and the first aid kit Incas e of an emergency. Children are allowed to play but are given verbal boundaries about how far they can go and staff will regularly head count the children. In the winter season we ask the parents to provide the children with warm outdoor clothing: including hat, gloves, waterproof coats/jackets, and outdoor shoes. In the summer season we ask the parents to apply sunscreen to their children.

Health and safety police The safety of young children is if very important. The childcare room and equipment are checked on a daily basis for safety and risk assessment forms are completed. This includes the outside area. The low level windows confirm to safety slandered. The main doors are locked for security. Any accidents the child may have are recorded in the accident book and are signed by a member of staff and parents. All electrical sockets are covered and any cables are kept out of reach of children. All electrical appliances are portable appliances testing tested. The childcare promotes a healthy lifestyle and a high slandered of hygiene in its day to day work with children and adults. Records are kept in a locked cabinet of all children's and staffs that are attending the children department, including names, telephone numbers, addresses, and phone numbers.

Conclusion

And we have to head count the children to see if we have all the children and none are missing, If anything happens to the child then we are going to be blamed for it that we didn't take good care of the child and our childcare might suffer because of that. The parents might not be able to trust the childcare setting. Also we have to take care of their health by giving them healthy food, and if they haven't got anything with them w provide food for them. And make sure they are eating it properly otherwise during the all trip they'll get hungry. We have to risk asses the area we are taking them to, if it has less risk then we allow them to play but they are not allowed to go very far because they can hurt themselves or might be lost. That's why it's really important to follow the polices and procedures for me and everyone else because then we'll know what is best for the children and what is not. And if anyone who does not follow the polices then they could lose their job. ...read more.
