How to become a Registered Childminder


Summary (optional)
start content

Registered Childminders are professional day carers who work from their own homes for more than two hours a day, providing care and learning opportunities for children aged 12 and under.

Childminders are registered and inspected on a regular basis by Care and Social Services Inspectorate Wales (CSSIW) to ensure that they provide a safe and suitable environment for young children. Childminders are usually registered to look after a maximum of ten children including their own, dependant on the size of the premises and the childrens’ ages. Childminders are self-employed and as there is no national rate for Childminding, they set their own rates. This can depend on the services the Childminder offers, the area they live and the overheads they have to cover.
