Childminder Support

Childminders reflect on practice

Having been registered childminders ourselves, we know that, while while it is a fantastically rewarding career, being a childminder can also make you feel isolated and confused about what is expected of you.

That is why Childminding Matters are here to help support and guide you.

Childminders Throughout England

  • Our shop includes a variety of resources to help you with your day to day work (including contracts, learning journeys, accident & incident records)
  • Our shop sells a range on online CPD to work through at your own pace and to help you extend and improve your practice (includes autism awareness and mathematical skills)
  • All products in our shop are available to browse here
  • For those that are newly registering, our Childminder Registration Course  satisfies Ofsted’s criteria as a childminder course by introducing you to the EYFS and a generic introduction to child protection/safeguarding. It also includes business and financial planning, marketing etc.
