This course covers all the information you need to know about the business aspects and practical issues of running a successful childminding business.

This course will guide you through the following topics:

  • Marketing your childminding business

  • Income Tax and National Insurance Requirements

  • Building a parent portfolio/prospectus/parent pack- and the importance of these

  • Business planning including providing funded places for 2, 3 and 4 year olds

  • Considering your family- getting it right from the start

  • Working with parents- including how to conduct first interviews

  • Settling new children in and establishing routines

Getting all these things right from day one can help your childminding business grow and develop into a professional and sustainable childcare service.

This course is one of the five modules included in the complete online introductory course but is also available to buy separately.

Childminding UK online training is available to you to either complete all at once or re-visit as many times as you need to depending on the time you have available. Unlike some online courses, there are no limits to how many times you can retake the Knowledge Test at the end of the course. Once successfully completed, you can print off your own named certificate for your record of ongoing Continuous Professional Development. This course has been produced particularly for Registered Childminders in the UK but is also suitable for all other early years practitioners.
