How to set up a childcare business

Become an Ofsted registered childminder

You must register with Ofsted or a childminder agency if you want to be paid to look after children under eight years old, for more than two hours a day in your own home. 

Before you register with Ofsted, you must complete training which helps you understand and implement the Early Years Foundation Stage We are unable to advise you as to which course to take, though for example PACEYChildminding Matters or Childminding UK offer training options. Please be advised that Warwickshire County Council has not undertaken any quality checking of the courses provided by these providers. 

For more information about becoming a registered childminder please see our Childminder Briefing and for further advice and guidance contact the team via
