what s changing1

From September 2014, Children and Families Act herald the emergence of Childminder Agencies

The Government sees childminder agencies as being ‘One-stop shop' organisations;

  • Offering training, business support, advice and support to childminders.
  • Marketing, administrative support and development opportunities to help them to further raise the quality of their provision.
  • Providing a valuable service for parents who want to find a high quality childminder including a matching service for parents providing them with the information they need to make informed choices.
  • Guaranteeing high quality provision

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

locally’

But it is vital that childminder agencies are Self funding
