Childminder pre-registration briefing

The Early Years Team are pleased to launch the first of a suite of e-learning modules for early years and childcare practitioners, or those wishing to become childminders.  

The first to launch is the 'Childminder Briefing' module. Prospective childminders can now access this short introduction to childminding and the process of registration. If you know anyone who may be interested, please direct them to this site to sign up, or ask them to contact us at

E-learning can be completed at your own pace, and at a time that is convenient to you. Created by the Early Years Team, these short courses allow you to gain all the essential information in an interactive way with minimal cost and disruption to your day.

Look out for the safeguarding basic awareness module, coming soon.
