Ofsted publishes Childminder agency handbook, and the application forms that people need if they wish to apply to become an agency.
Taken together these documents provide guidance to those wishing to become agencies about how to apply, as well as information on how Ofsted will regulate agencies once they are registered.
We will publish further information about our inspection of childminder agencies before we begin our first round of inspections early next year.
