Childminding NAPC


What is a childminder?

A Childminder cares for a small group of children of mixed ages in the childminder’s own home.

Children are welcomed as individuals, they are offered affection and respect and their developmental and recreational needs are met.  Childminders offer a flexible service, tailored to each child, thereby helping parents and guardians to balance their work and family commitments.  A Childminder negotiates and agrees her/his terms with parents.  The child’s welfare must be the prime consideration of the Childminder.  Childminders have sole responsibility for the health, safety and wellbeing of each child entrusted to their care.
