The EYFS is given legal force through Order and Regulations made under the Childcare Act 2006.
These include many policies including health & safety, behaviour, food & drink, equal opportunities, other cultures, special needs, medication, nappy changing, accidents, visits and outings, etc.
When a new family come to visit they are given a prospectus to look through with full details of all my policies.
