Ipswich Waterfront Action Partnership Group would recommend that before using any childcare facilities that parents / carers check that any provision is registered with any appropriate bodies, that the facility has a recruitment procedure which ensures that adults are vetted and provided with appropriate supervision, that the setting has a Safeguarding or Child Protection policy and that both they and their child are happy.
