Information about registration on the childcare register.
The guidance explains how Ofsted will deal with your application to decide if you are suitable to be registered. It is not authoritative legal advice. It will help you decide whether to apply for registration and explains what processes your application will go through before Ofsted can decide whether you are suitable for registration on the Childcare Register. It sets out who must apply to join the Childcare Register; who can choose to do so; and how Ofsted registers those applying. It also gives information on continued registration and inspection.
