Registered childminders work in their own home, caring
for other people's children. Regulated and inspected by Ofsted (in
England) or CSSIW (in Wales), you can be sure that your childminder
has the training, checks and credentials to give you peace of
Using childcare in a home environment means your children can
enjoy real-life learning experiences like cooking, shopping,
gardening, mealtimes and outings to the park and library.
Childminders can be spontaneous, too - making the most of a sunny
or unexpectedly snowy day as a great opportunity for outdoor play
Many childminders are able to offer the free early education
sessions all children are entitled to. And, of course, childminders
are able to care for children of different ages, meaning brothers
and sisters can be cared for together.
Childminders are ideally placed for looking after disabled
children, taking into account their unique requirements, and
working closely with you to provide personalised care.
