This document was updated in January 2013. It was previously called The requirements of the Early Years Register.

Childminders and childcare providers registered on the Early Years Register must meet the legal requirements set out in the Childcare Act 2006 and associated regulations in order to remain registered. The law establishes the Early Years Foundation Stage as the framework for the care and education of children in the early years age group that all those registered on the Early Years Register must deliver.

The legal requirements you must meet for the safeguarding and welfare and the learning and development of young children are set out in the Statutory Framework for the Early Years Foundation Stage.

The Early Years Foundation Stage requires all providers to keep certain written records.
