They used to ring and ask if you had any EYFS children and if not they didnt inspect. They asked you to ring if you got any and I think after a while they will inspect you without.

I dont know if its still the same under the changes, but suspect it may be.

I was told if i didnt have any eyfs children they would still inspect me but with no children on the roll. So they wouldnt grade me. It depends on how overdue you are :)

Hi thanks it makes me laugh as i loked after a.baby for four mths and could have visit me and now just a after school child. i also hate it that parent who are looking for childminders also look at ur grade which is hard as ofsted has not grade me yet. just be nice to know what there look for when do come.
