Childminders

Childminders

Registered childminders are professional child carers who work in their own homes to provide care and learning opportunities for other people’s children in a family setting.

 By law childminders must:-

  • be registered with Care Inspectorate Wales (CIW) before they begin to work with children.
  • have a written agreement  with parents for each child they care for. It should set out clearly what is expected from each party.
