‘Unregistered’ childminders illegal

child minding

Generally the rules are there to ensure everyone gets the protection and support they need, but in this case the rules may be too strict. Two policewomen set up a reciprocal agreement to childmind for each other so they could both return to work. Ofsted have stated that they need to be registered as childminders if they are getting a reward for looking after unrelated children for longer than 2 hours or for more than 14 days a year. For the women in question they will be unable to work if they’re not allowed to childmind for each other, it all seems to hinge on just what constitutes a ‘reward’.
