6 EYFS Framework As an afterschool club we intend to compliment learning using the EYFS framework, to do this we will liaise with teachers and parents for children in reception year who use the afterschool club. The Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) is the statutory framework that sets the standards that all Early Years providers must meet to ensure that children learn and develop well and are kept healthy and safe. The EYFS seeks to provide: quality and consistency in all early years settings, so that every child makes good progress and no child gets left behind; a secure foundation through learning and development opportunities which are planned around the needs and interests of each individual child and are assessed and reviewed regularly; partnership working between practitioners and with parents and/or carers; equality of opportunity and anti-discriminatory practice, ensuring that every child is included and supported. The full document is available on line at 2012/ and scroll down to the parents section. 2012/

10 Complaints Procedure Kids Clubhouse Complaints Policy At Kids Clubhouse we aim to work in partnership with parents to deliver a high quality childcare service for everyone. If for any reason we fall short of this goal, we would like to be informed in order to amend our practices for the future. Our complaints policy will be displayed on the premises at all times. Records of all complaints will be retained for a period of at least three years. A summary of complaints is available for parents on request. The manager will generally be responsible for dealing with complaints. If the complaint is about the manager, the registered person or other senior member of staff will investigate the matter. Any complaints received about staff members will be recorded on an Incident log and a Complaints log will be completed. Any complaints made will be dealt with in the following manner: Stage one Complaints about aspects of Club activity: The manager will discuss the matter informally with the parent or carer concerned and aim to reach a satisfactory resolution. Complaints about an individual staff member: If appropriate the parent will be encouraged to discuss the matter with staff concerned. If the parent feels that this is not appropriate, the matter will be discussed with the manager, who will then discuss the complaint with the staff member and try to reach a satisfactory resolution. Stage two If it is impossible to reach a satisfactory resolution to the complaint through informal discussion, the parent or carer should put their complaint in writing to the manager. The manager will: Acknowledge receipt of the letter within 7 days. Investigate the matter and notify the complainant of the outcome within 28 days. Send a full response in writing, to all relevant parties, including details of any recommended changes to be made to the Club’s practices or policies as a result of the complaint. Meet relevant parties to discuss the Club’s response to the complaint, either together or on an individual basis. If child protection issues are raised, the manager will refer the situation to the Club’s Child Protection Officer, who will then contact Social Care and follow the procedures of the Safeguarding Children Policy. If a criminal act may have been committed, the manager will contact the police. Making a complaint to Ofsted Any parent or carer can submit a complaint to Ofsted about Kids Clubhouse at any time.
