Our personal injury lawyer in Plymouth and claim paperwork
Many would-be child minders are surprised by the sheer volume of paperwork that is involved with the service. It is required to make sure that the child minder has the policies and procedures to keep children safe. Some of this paperwork may be reviewed during a claim. Child minding paperwork falls into the following main groups:
- Formal documents providing proof of registration, insurance and qualifications and training.
- Policies and procedures.
A good child minder will approach the task of putting together the paperwork in a methodical way. A well organised collection of well-written documents is one of the ways that they can demonstrate to parents that they are able to provide a childminding service of the highest quality. It also helps them to defend a personal injury claim should one arise.
Some of the paperwork is formal documents and certificates. For example, the registration certificate of the child minder is a very important document and should be displayed clearly in the premises where they are childminding so that parents can easily see it. Most child minders frame it and hang it on the wall.
All childminders should have adequate insurance in respect of liability which may be incurred by them in respect of death, injury, public liability, damage or other loss occurring in relation to their child minding. They will be asked to present their insurance certificate at some point during their regular inspections and it is this insurance policy that pays out in most personal injury claims against child minders.
