Choosing a childminder
Childminders are categorised as childcare providers.
It is best to select a provider that has been graded Good (Grade 2) or Outstanding (Grade 1). Research has shown that nurseries and childminders that provide a high quality of care and education have a more positive impact on children’s learning and development.

Paying for childminding services
Financial arrangements are a private matter to be agreed between parent and child minder.
However, we strongly advise that parents sign a contract with their childminder.
