This training is suitable for those who wish to register with Ofsted to become a Childminder. Once you have completed this course you will be able to apply to Ofsted with confidence. Ofsted are looking for you to evidence that you have sound knowledge of the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS). Your last day of training will be Safeguarding Children and a separate safeguarding certificate will be issued for this day. This certificate will last for 2 years before you would need to attend any additional training. This course will prepare you for your first inspection visit from Ofsted and give you the knowledge and information required to run your own Childminding Business. Remember currently a childcare business grant (£500) is available from the government once you are registered with Ofsted. However this grant may be withdrawn in March.
