    Default Is It Easy To Become A Childminder?

    I would like to ask those who are already doing it for years, Is it easy to be a childminder? What qualifications do you need to become one? I know there are qualifications and trainings needed.

    Hi, Best speak to your local authority early years department and see the link below. It isn't easy, but it is a very rewarding career. Do you have children yourself?

    It's reasonably "easy" to become one but not so "easy" as a job once you are one! It's hard work, takes over your life, your house etc x

    It can take over, but I wouldn't do anything else!
