Start-up pack for Welsh OSCs

The Start-up Pack for Welsh OSCs contains templates of all the paperwork that you are likely to need when setting up and running an out of school club based in Wales. It combines the contents of our key information packs but tailored to reflect the regulatory framework for childcare settings that operate in Wales. It is thus based on the content of our:

plus numerous additional templates that we do not currently sell separately, as well as some documents specifically developed for Welsh settings such as the Welsh Language Policy and the Statement of Purpose, giving you a total of 118 template documents.

The templates in the Start-up Pack for Welsh OSCs reflect the current version (2016) of the National Minimum Standards for Regulated Childcare for children up to the age of 12 years, as well as any subsequent changes to relevant legislation such as the introduction of the GDPR. The template documents contained in this pack are supplied in English only.

The Start-up Pack for Welsh OSCs is supplied as a download so that you can start using it right away. The template documents are in Microsoft Word format so that you can easily modify them as needed for your own childcare setting. If you are unsure whether your word processing application can open Word documents, find out more about software compatibility.
