I am registered to provide care overnight for children if required.


Children being care for overnight have additional care needs, which needs to be discussed prior to a child staying. I will need to obtain information from you about your child’s routines and habits, i.e. bedwetting, nightmares etc and share with you their arrangements for care to ensure the child’s needs are met.


Children will have easy access to me and they will have a safe and suitable place to sleep. I will ensure the child’s safety and privacy are safeguarded at all times.

Before a child stays overnight, emergency contact numbers must be provided. If the parent is unavailable to be contacted then another named person must be available to collect the child if necessary - confirmation of this agreement must be obtained which will be included in the contract with the parents agreement. 



Please supply the following items in an overnight bag for your child’s stay:


  • Pyjamas / dressing gown / slippers
  • Suitable nappies and wipes
  • Toiletries - toothpaste / toothbrush / soap / bubble bath / shampoo etc
  • Clothing for the next morning
  • Comforter / teddy for sleep
  • Any other items you feel your child may need.


Please note:


  • Clean bedding and towels will be provided and are washed daily
  • Please can you make sure nappies and wipes are sent for your child. I do not keep spare nappies for the reason of so many in different kinds / sizes
  • If it is easier to leave a pack with me, I will inform you when we require more. 

If a child is cared for a continuous period of 28 days or more, s/he is regarded as a foster child and I must notify the local Social Services Department.
