Becoming a Childminder Pre-Registration Briefing

This is the first step to becoming a Registered Childminder with Ofsted.

This briefing outlines what is involved in embarking on the new career as a self-employed childminder including what training is required.

If you wish to become a childminder in Lewisham you need to attend this pre-registration briefing.


This session will provide you with an opportunity to:

Find out about what is involved in becoming a registered childminder, including what is required by OfSTED (which is the government department responsible for registering and inspecting childminders);

Hear about the process for applying to register as a childminder on the Early Years Register; and begin to network with other prospective childminders.

Find out about the courses available to you through STEEP to support you in becoming a Registered Childimnder.


After the Briefing:

For those who have attended this Briefing we offer a Basic Skills assessment, so anyone considering becoming a Childminder can ensure they have the literacy skills in English needed to follow a Level 3 course. The Introduction to Childminding Practice is a Level 3 course and we aim to ensure course participants have the best chance to excel.
