Childcare Hygiene Policy

Hygiene Policy For Childcare Provision

HS.HP.02

This Hygiene Policy for Childcare Provision aids companies who provide childcare services to set out clear good hygiene practices for their staff.

Childcare institutions have a responsibility to ensure that both staff and children in their care have a clean and hygienic environment and that wherever possible the spread of infection is prevented. The policy should form part of the business’s staff training pack and new intake welcome pack and should be clearly displayed to staff and parents, carers or guardians. If the provision of childcare involves food processing and handling (i.e. cooks, servers) then the Simply-docs Food and Hygiene Policy should also be used, unless the business already has a suitable food and hygiene policy in place.

The Hygiene Policy for Childcare Provision contains the following sections:
1. Introduction
2. Personal Hygiene
3. Nappy Changing
4. HIV and other blood transferred infections
5. Illness
6. Accidents
7. Food Handling
8. Serving
9. Cleaning
10. Smoking
