Hi, I have requested my childminding information pack but I was wondering if anybody could provide me with further information and what I need to do prior to becoming a childminder and the initial start up costs etc for courses??

You need to do an Introduction to Childminding course (ICP) and a First aid (paediatric).

These should be funded (or partially funded) by your authority.

It depends where you live ... you might also get a start up grant.

This should all be explained to you at your pre-registration meeting ...

They will send you an invitation to the next one when they receive your request.

Hope this helps :D
