Smoke Free Early Years Provider Policy

The Smoke Free Early Years Provider Policy has been updated (October 2016). This policy should link to your own premises policies.

The update covers the use of e-cigarettes, which it suggests should  be  banned on all Childcare/Early years setting sites due to the role modelling of adults to younger children.

The policy also covers staff smoking and states staff should only be smoking off premises, in unpaid breaks (i.e. only lunch breaks) and out of uniform.
