A childminder provides care for children in the childminder’s own home. If a childminder looks after children aged between 0 and 8 years, they are required to register with OFSTED and meet standards relating to their suitability as carers of children, the safety of premises and facilities, insurance, and record keeping. Checks are made on all members of the household over the age of 16 yrs to several agencies. For assistance and advice on how to select a childminder please click the Read More logo below.
