In their September 2014 publication step-by-step guide to childminder agencies, the DfE has now confirmed that childminders ‘can only be registered with one agency or Ofsted at any one time’.  This means that those who join agencies will no longer be able to register with Ofsted so that they can keep their individual inspection rating.

The safeguarding of children is still defined as ‘paramount’, therefore ensure your training is up to date with our child protection course designed and written specifically for child minders.
