Protective measures in childcare settings: Keep Childcare Safe
Childcare is provided in a wide range of settings and caters for children between the ages of 0 to 12. Although the protective measures recommended in this guidance are aimed at registered settings and environments primarily caring for pre-school aged children, many of the same principles apply to childcare provision for older age groups of children, including after-school and holiday schemes – both registered and unregistered. Settings providing childcare for older children are also advised to refer to the guidance for schools and to form a judgment on which measures are most appropriate and relevant to their particular operating model during the Covid-19 outbreak and the ages of children in their care.
The measures set out in this guidance are to be considered over and above the requirements contained within the National Minimum Standards for Regulated Childcare.
