Guidance on Nappy Changing Facilities for Early Learning and Childcare Services – June 2018

In our Falkirk nurseries,  when practitioners are caring for young children who use nappies, they must have appropriate facilities. These facilities must provide children with a safe, clean environment and appropriate equipment, while promoting privacy and dignity.

Appropriate nappy changing and personal care facilities are essential for the health and wellbeing of children and of staff.  This guidance explains the standards when providing nappy changing or personal care facilities for young children. It is important that everyone who plans, provides or uses early learning and childcare settings is aware of the expected nappy changing facilities they must have.
