Working in childcare

Becoming a childminder

Childminders work from their own homes providing care and education to other people’s children. They are self-employed, registered with Ofsted and run their businesses around their own family commitments. If you are interested in becoming a childminder, you may be entitled to start up grant to support the costs of you registering and growing your business. Please watch our short film where we hear from one of Lincolnshire’s childminders about their typical day.
