Safeguarding and Welfare Requirements
The Safeguarding and Welfare Requirements are designed to help providers create high quality settings that are welcoming, safe and stimulating, and where children are able to enjoy learning and grow in confidence.
Providers must take all necessary steps to keep children safe and well. The requirements explain what early years providers must do to
- safeguard children;
- ensure the suitability of adults who have contact with children;
- promote good health;
- manage behaviour;
- maintain records, policies and procedures.
