Garden Equipment Policy

Garden Equipment Policy

As a registered childminder, I encourage the children in my care to join in all sorts of activities and produce a range of resources to make it fun and enjoyable.

In my garden I provide a range of different play equipment. Whilst this produces lots of opportunities for developing new physical skills and enjoyment, it also brings danger. Children need to learn about danger and risk taking. In order to make my garden safe and reduce the risk of possible accidents I have put the following procedures in place:-

  • All children will be supervised by a responsible adult at all times
  • Children will be taught the correct way to use equipment. Equipment will be used by children of the correct age group it was meant for
  • Children will be encouraged to share and take turns
  • Equipment will be checked regularly for wear and tear
  • Children will be encouraged to participate but will not be forced to do anything they are uncomfortable with
