Childminding is changing: The National Action Plan for Childminding sets out a phased approach towards regulation, supports, and subsidies, for all paid, non-relative childminders. The Action Plan will involve change with significant benefits for childminders, children and the families using your services. The plan was launched in April 2021 and is currently being developed to bring all childminders under the remit of childcare regulations specific for childminding services in the home. This will enable greater recognition for childminding and open the way for additional supports and access to government funded schemes for childminders.
