02-09-2013, 10:05 AM
Hi, I just joined this forum yesterday as Im interested in childminding after I have my baby and I've done quite a bit of googling how to become a childminder etc etc and it says that I must go to a pre reg briefing session. Well I am in essex and Ive been looking everywhere for briefing sessions, so I emailed my essex county coucil and they emailed me this back stating this :

"Essex County Council does not run the 'Pre-registration briefings' anymore. This is currently being replaced with an Informative e-mail on how to become a childminder in Essex. "

So Im now confused, I dont go to any pre reg briefing sessions, I just DL it instead?:panic: Ive heard at the sessions thats where you get all your information packs: EYFS, Ofsted applicaiton forms, info about insurance and CRB applicaitons etc. How am I going to get all the information and right paperwork now? Any help will be appreciated, thank you.

I think you can access the courses you need through Pacey.
