Other Adults in the House Policy

As well as myself there is also my husband in the house. His name is Owen Mates.

Both of us have undergone Disclosing and Baring Service checks and received clearances. My husband is very supportive of my chosen career as a Childminder and will assist me in any way he can. If he is at home when I am minding he interacts well with the children and is a good role model.
I encourage him to join in with the activities and the children respond well to him.

Although he has been thoroughly checked to be suitable to be near young children, I would like to reassure you that at no time is anyone, other than myself, allowed to help the children with their intimate care, i.e. nappy changing and toileting. This is to protect your child and to protect my family from any possible allegations of abuse.
