This requirement is over-the-top and should be vastly reduced.
I am informed by playgroup officers and other child minders that the amount of record keeping they are required to keep is too much. Does anyone ever read all these word?. I guess the regulations are designed to help trace activities leading to an incident, but the recent case of the Plymouth play-worker shows that this may not help.
Good training of playgroup workers will ensure that every child needs to have a share of attention, and support. Let's abolish unnecessary record keeping.
