Business in a Box
This is our innovative creation to help new and existing businesses get their settings in order. We have developed an infrastructure which will enable anyone to open a Breakfast, After School or Holiday Club setting with every procedure, form and policy already complete, we call in our 'Business in a Box' and it literally arrives already arranged into files and folders in a box ready to be put into practice. It would be equally suitable for someone wanting to refresh and existing settings policy and practice. Everything is prepared for you - from how to file accident forms so they can be reviewed monthly for H&S and Safeguarding requirements to the forms and folders to make it happen. We'll even give you some Activity Planners & Instructions too, so the 'To Do' list in your first weeks of business will be kept to a minimum.
Standard Box Contents
