Action for Children is pleased to announce that we will be hosting an information session entitled – Local Authorities and Childminder Agencies

Childminder agencies are organisations that register childminders and provide them with training, advice, administrative support and marketing to families. Any organisation that is committed to providing parents and children with a high quality childcare experience can apply to be registered by Ofsted as a childminder agency.

This session will look at the role of Local Authorities when working with Childminder Agencies and will also look at the Local Authority role in the establishment of Childminder Agencies, either as an in-house Local Authority model or working with external providers.

Who should attend?

  • Local Authority officers
  • Organisations with an interest in setting up as a Childminder Agency (CMA).
  • Childminders interested in the CMA model

Aim of the session:

  • Offer support to Local Authorities interested in setting up as a CMA or wishing to work with CMAs in their local area
  • Offer support to those considering setting up as an agency, either now or in the future
