Childcare and Early Years

How to become a registered childminder

You will need to register with Ofsted (link opens in new window) before you can look after children under the age of 8 years. To be a childminder, you need to be at least 18.

We currently offer information sessions for those considering childminding as a career. Sessions are informal, free of charge and aim to provide you with enough information to help you decide if childminding is the career for you.
