A RENTON child minder has been told to create personal plans for kids in her care, in a report from the Care Inspectorate.

Kimberly Halliday, who can look after six children under the age of 16 at any one time, operates from her home.

During an unannounced visit on July 11, the Care Inspectorate graded Ms Halliday's service.

The actual quality of care and support given to children was praised, receiving the third highest grade of "good".

The environment in which the kids are cared for was graded as "adequate".

The last of the three areas to be graded, quality of management and leadership, was graded as "weak", the second lowest possible score.

Inspectors found that no personalised plans were in place for any of the children in Ms Halliday's care, nor was there any registration documents.

The watchdog has the power to make requirements of care providers, something which they must do before a re-inspection, or face sanctions.

Two requirements were placed on Ms Halliday and her service, one of which requires her to create personal care plans, which include the major milestones in the life of the children in her care.

The second instructed the childminder to provide registration documents, the lack of which she described as an "oversight", according to the report.

Ms Halliday was instructed to complete both requirements within just 24 hours of the visit last month, but it is not clear if these have been satisfied.

Inspectors also said that a child was found to be sleeping in their buggy during the inspection, and Ms Halliday recommended to update her policies - including a "safe sleeping" rule - to bring them in line with best practice.

The report also said Ms Halliday had failed to prove she had satisfied three of the four recommendations she was given in her last inspection in 2015.

The carer was asked to update her medication policy, and to ensure permission forms are completed by parents before "each episode of medication being given".

Inspectors say she failed to show an updated policy and their was no sign of the completed forms.

Ms Halliday was also instructed to create detailed risk assessments for the environment around her home, which had not been done.

It was also recommended that more is done to engage with parents on the quality of the service, and the needs of their children, but inspectors could not prove this had happened beyond a daily chat with parents.

Ms Halliday did not respond to a request for comment.
