Childminders must be regulated to ensure children are safe in their homes

Last month, when we published the Ofsted Annual Report, we had good news to report about childminders. Ninety-four per cent of childminders were judged good or outstanding at their last inspection. And since 2012, the proportion of childminders judged to be at least good has improved at a faster rate than nurseries and pre-schools. That improvement is mainly down to the hard work and professionalism of childminders themselves.
