Early Years Toolkit

The toolkit aims to highlight and endorse best practice for managing the risks associated with online technologies.

The toolkit includes policies and procedures which should be used as exemplars. This means they should be considered best practice.

Early years settings are required to tailor the polices to meet their own individual requirements, but there is an expectation that the core message and values will remain the same.
