Working in childcare questions
Question: How do I become registered?
To become registered first you will need to attend a free pre-registration briefing where you will find out more about becoming a childminder.
Following the briefing session and attendance at relevant training, a member of the Childminding Service will visit your home to carry out a home safety check. Once they are satisfied your home meets the welfare requirements of the Statutory Framework for the Early Years Foundation Stage, you will receive support to complete your Ofsted application pack which when complete will start your registration process with Ofsted.
