Registered Childminders provide care and learning opportunities for children under the age of 12 in their own home for more than two hours a day for payment.

  • Childminders are registered and inspected by Care Inspectorate Wales (CIW) to ensure that they provide a safe and suitable environment for young children.
  • Childminders are self-employed and must work within the ratios set in the National Minimum Standards for Childminders in Wales (this includes childminders own children).
  • It is illegal to care for children for reward (money or money’s worth) unless you are registered.
