Become a registered nanny
Unlike registered childminders (who tend to be self-employed and
work in their own homes), nannies do not have to be registered or
inspected. PACEY recommends however that nannies join the
Ofsted Childcare Register or, in Wales, the
Childcare At Home Approval Scheme Wales.
Being registered like this helps you demonstrate to parents your
commitment to the care of their children to the highest possible
standards. It also allows parents to gain access to government
support in helping them pay for their childcare.
However, you can still become a member of
PACEY without registering with Ofsted or the Childcare At Home
PACEY can offer you support and guidance as a nanny. Join PACEY
as a professional nanny and take advantage of a range of offers.
