    you need to take an introduction to childminding course - regardless of any qualifications you currently have.

    You should speak to your LA about what courses they have available

    You can look after 6 children. 3 in early years and in those 3 no more the one under one year old.

    Hi, I'm in the process of applying too. I've had to do a paediatric 1st aid course and will be doing the introduction to childminding course soon. I would say apply for your dbs as soon as possible as this can take a while and without it you can't send off your application to ofsted. I'm a family support worker but have still needed to apply for a new DBS, which I'm still waiting for.
