A childminder: good practice example


This good practice example shows how the childminder supports children’s learning with skill and care. It demonstrates what can be achieved when workers have the right knowledge, skills and attitudes about working with children in the Early Years Foundation Stage.

This is part of a set of 8 Ofsted good practice examples showcasing good practice in early years to support the report: ‘Teaching and play in the early years – a balancing act?’.
