Guide to registration on the Early Years Register

21 Mar 2014 Ofsted

Ref: 140063

This document was updated in March 2014.

This guidance replaces:

  • Guide to registration on the Early Years Register: childcare provider on domestic or non-domestic premises
  • Guide to registration on the Early Years Register: childminder.

Looking after children is one of the most important services anyone can provide. We register childminders and childcare providers so that children are well cared for and that younger children are helped to learn in line with the requirements of the Early Years Foundation Stage. Registration also helps to reassure parents that their children are safe.

This guidance includes information for all applicants who wish to register as a childminder or a childcare provider on domestic or non-domestic premises on the Early Years Register. It provides an overview of how to make an application; the registration process; inspection and other visits we may undertake.
