Action for Children
LED Events Presentations September 2016
During September 2016, we ran our free Learn Explore Debate events which we run as the Department for Education’s Early Years and Childcare’s strategic partner. The LED events covered the 30 hours entitlement, early years funding consultation, early years workforce strategy, and Ofsted updates. The presentations from these events can be accessed here.
We are pleased to host an information session about childminder agencies, including how to set one up, on the 21st of September in central London.
Childminder agencies were implemented in 2014 as a way to improve childcare for Britain’s families. Childminder agencies are organisations that register childminders and provide them with training, advice, administrative support and marketing to families. Any organisation that is committed to providing parents and children with a high quality childcare experience can apply to be registered by Ofsted as a childminder agency.
Who should attend? Anyone interested in providing high quality, flexible childcare. Current childminder agencies consist of nurseries, childminders, local authorities and schools.
Aim of the session:
- Offer support to those considering setting up as an agency, either now or in the future
- Share experiences and best practices of existing childminder agencies
- Access to the most up-to-date information on childminder agencies
- Networking with like-minded people
