A robust ring binder houses this comprehensive guide to managing and running an early years setting. It updates the first edition, published six years ago, with reference to the revised EYFS, the new Ofsted framework and protocols, and recent changes to employment, equal opportunities and business law.

Chapters include choosing a business model and managing areas such as legal requirements, staff, the environment, money and market change. The chapter on quality provision investigates the range of policies needed to support good practice, considering policies affecting children and families, staff and the management and organisation of the setting. It comes with a CD of sample documents.
