Childminding in Bradford

Childminding in Bradford

Registered childminders are childcare professionals working in their own homes to provide care and education for other people's children.

Childminders are inspected and registered by Ofsted or an Ofsted registered  Childminding Agency. They offer home based childcare looking after small groups of children of different ages and from different families. 

Registered childminders are usually self-employed and run their own business. Some go on to expand their business and employ childminding assistants so they can care for more children at once.
