Registered Childminders

STOP PRESS… Berkhamsted Childminders now have a website (www.berkhamstedchildminders.co.uk) where you can obtain up to date information on childminders in the Berkhamsted area.

The following registered childminders provide a safe home environment for children. Many childminders offer a level of flexibility to meet the needs of parents and children. The day often begins early when parents deliver children to the childminder, who has planned and prepared the day’s activities. This can include taking older children to school/playgroups, playing with the children, reading stories, preparing meals, allowing rest time, providing suitable toys and equipment and a range of play and learning activities.

Childminders aim to build good working relationships with both children and parents. They understand and provide for children’s needs, maintain confidentiality and have the skills to run a small business.

Childminders must be registered with Ofsted to look after children under eight for reward and this regulation ensures adequate training and professional development to ensure the well-being of children in their care. Childminders provide professional individual care for children, giving them the meaningful rewarding experiences that quality care requires. For more information please contact the Family Information Service on 01438 737502.
