Does anyone know the approximate cost of ofsteds fees/admin charges for a childminder? Also, any others fees of any other organisations i might want to join??

I'm doing my financial plan for my cypop5 and have been looking online for rough costs, but nothing is really too clear!

Many thanks!

Hmmm... I think the reg fee for Ofsted is around £20. (Probably the only thing they are really quick and prompt at sending you lol).

NCMA not sure, Around £40 I think?

Nursery world about £21 every 3 months

hi there im new to childminding and i paid £35 for my registration fee with ofsted and £92 for my NCMA insurance but this also included a joinging fee, i also believe there is a cost of£35 to become a data controller which allowes you to be able to take pictures of the children for their diaries etc. hope this helps.

Nicole what is nursery world?
