All childminders must be registered, complete training, first aid qualifications, undergo enhanced Criminal Record Bureau (ECRB) checks and are subject to inspection and grading by Ofsted before they are able to work from their registered address.
By choosing a registered childminder, you are assured the childminder is qualified, has the appropriate insurance, security vetting for all ocupants of the registered address and the setting is safe and a suitable for the provision of childcare.
Registered childminders work from their family home and they are able to provide a flexible and homely environment for children in thier care.
