    Default Petition - Stop Deregulation!!

    We urge the Government to undertake full and current research into all aspects of registered childminding and to consult with experts in the field, national representative organisations and most importantly those who are practising registered childminders, before deciding on the future regulation and inspection requirements of childminders.

    We understand the Government’s desire to cut childcare costs for parents and need to reduce Government budgets; however as registered childminders we are an integral part of the childcare market providing professional, home based childcare that meets the needs of parents, providing more flexible hours, the ability for siblings of all ages to be cared for together, care from birth to teenage years ensuring continuity of care, and lower ratios that centre based care.

    Registered childminders are regulated and inspected, they follow the Early Years Foundation Stage and meet the legal requirements in the same way all other early years settings do. This ensures that all children receive high quality care and learning opportunities and that early years settings have a common language when practicing multi agency working.

    Before reaching any decision which will impact on parent’s choice of regulated childcare, children’s equality of opportunities and childminders businesses, the government must build upon the significant progress that has been made in the childminding sector in recent years, ensuring that this is a step forward with positive benefits to all but especially for children because opportunities to reach their full potential, once missed are hard if not impossible to recreate and failure to safeguard a child can never be reversed.


    Please make your voice heard and go to the link below and sign the petition, add your comments as to why you are adding your name to the growing list. Email your parents the link and post on facebook and encourage everyone you know. This is an important time for childminders

    Just some stats for you:

    Out of the 915 people who have signed it 640 have shared it on facebook.

    It have been tweeted 9 times direct from the petition.

    In some periods we are getting someone sign it every minute.

    Lets keep this train rolling - I beleive this is just the tip of the iceberg.
