What next? Now I'm waiting to apply to Ofsted. In September they are changing the way the visit works. I need to be ready to accept a child the very next day. There's no week's grace to fix anything that isn't quite right, everything needs to be ready and so we are still in the process of a little DIY to ensure our home is a safe place for 'Mindees'.

I began with An Introduction to Home-Based Childcare Briefing Guidance. This is a very basic run through of the steps needed to train and become registered.

Care.com is an online venue for families and carers to connect with each other. We do not introduce or supply carers to those seeking care, nor do we select or propose specific carers to those seeking care seekers or care seekers to carers. Care.com does not verify the identity of, or information posted by, care seekers or carers. Please see our Safety Centre for guidance on how to verify the identity of, and information posted by, other users.

When hiring a new childcare professional it is essential that you check their DBS (formely CRB) paperwork, along with whether they have had their Background Checks done. Once you are happy with your new childcare professional you can use our Findababysitter.com Payroll service to help with their contracts and tax.

We have 2 childminders in Wincanton listed in our online childminding directory.

I began thinking about childminding back in June. I wanted to be able to earn money and still be available for my own children and their various school activities, special assemblies and concerts.

This was then followed a few weeks later by Becoming a Home Based Child Carer held in Street, two evening sessions and two whole days at quite a cost. At the end of this course we had to produce a portfolio, containing a business plan, knowledge of the legislation, the importance of safeguarding, policies and procedures by which we will run our businesses. And don't forget the importance of play and how behaviour can be affected and many more topics.

Findababysitter.com is the affordable childcare option, offering all sorts of childcare help to families who want to return to work, or wish to have a well deserved night out.

Distances given are in a straight line from the centre of Wincanton but travel routes may be longer.

The amount of work involved really surprised me. Of course it's quite right that childminders are registered and have certain qualifications, but I think I totally underestimated the work childminders do and the path you go down to become registered.
