Welcome to Jan's Childcare

What does registration mean?

 

I am registered to care for 6 children under 8 years; of these, not  more than 3 may be under 5 years, and of these, not more than 1 under 1 year at any one time.

 

 The purpose of registration is:

 

  • To protect children

 

  • To provide reassurance to parents using childcare.

 

  • To ensure that childminding services meet acceptable standards.

To achieve registration a Childminder is required to comply with standards of safety, equipment, numbers of children etc.  The home environment is checked to ensure that it meets the standards required and that it is suitable to care for children.  References and health checks are required as are police checks on all individuals in the household over the age of 16yrs.  Following on from registration, childminders are inspected regularly by Ofsted.  Local County Council offices keep a register of all childminders who have completed the registration process.
