The NSPCC is inspired by a belief that we can make a difference for all children. That’s why we aim to end cruelty to children in the UK. Even if it takes many generations to realise it, we achieve much more for children by having this inspirational vision.
CCPAS (The Churches’ Child Protection Advisory Service) is the only independent Christian safeguarding charity. We exist to safeguard both children and vulnerable adults throughout the UK. We also work to help those throughout the UK who are, or have been, affected by child abuse and similar issues.

Good Practice Guide for Parent and Toddler Groups - Engage Today
Some years ago, Care for the Family worked with the Salvation Army and the Mothers Union to put together 'The Good Practice Guide to Parent and Toddler Groups.' It is a fantastic guide to toddler groups, especially valuable to groups just starting up, as well as established group leaders and teams.
Safeguarding Standards in Toddler Groups – having a Safeguarding Policy All Toddler Groups should have what is called a 'Safeguarding Policy'. This is something that the government expects all organisations open to or likely to be in contact with children to have. It will include having a staff recruitment procedure, good practice guidelines for workers, and a system for reporting any suspected or alleged abuse.
