The Government does not want to prescribe a business model for agencies – ‘we want
to give agencies the freedom to develop models that suit parents and childminders
But it is vital that childminder agencies are Self funding

Closing 22 May 2014 5:00pmThe Childcare (Childminder Agencies) draft Regulations 2014
Hackney are committed to maintaining quality care to young children in Hackney
We know the current childminder service supports quality
We are therefore exploring how the current service could be transferred into an Agency Model, which will not be for profit!!HLT agency model?
What services that Hackney Learning Trust childminding team currently offer would you like to retain?
Can I continue to make my own decisions about the service I provide if I join an HLT Agency?
If I join HLT agency what about tax, NI and public liability insurance?
Can I take funded 2 yr olds if I join HLT agency?
Can I take funded 2 yr olds if I’m not in your agency?
Would I receive a grading about the quality of my service from HLT agency that I can share with parent?
Would the number of children I can care for as a member of an agency stay the same?
If I join HLT agency, would Ofsted still inspect me or investigate complaints against me?
What if I just care for children over 5 yrs, can I join HLT Agency?Questions
