Why Choose a Childminder?

Leaving your chlid with someone for the first time can be a daunting experience. There are many different childcare options available and you naturally want what is best for your child.

Have you ever considered using a Childminder?

Childminders provide full and part time high quality childcare in their own homes from babies through to secondary school and are self employed. All Childminders (and anyone looking after a non-related child in their own home for more than 2 hours a day) must, by law, be registered with OFSTED (Office for Standards in Education).

Before a Childminder can become registered they must attend a local authority Childminder pre-registration course, attend an Early Years First Aid Course (which needs to be renewed every 3 years) and gain a qualification currently called "Introduction to Childcare Practice".
