Would you like to work from your own home, choosing the hours you work and the services you provide in a career where no two days are the same?

Could you provide a home environment that is safe and stimulating, providing lots of opportunities for children to play, explore and develop?

Can you offer childcare provision, which is professional, flexible, and able to meet the needs of individual families?

If so, becoming a registered childminder may be for you!
