You are already a Childminder, but want an alternative to Ofsted?
If you're considering transferring your registration to Rutland Early Years Agency, we'll be very pleased to have you on board and can't wait to welcome you!
Being registered as a childminder with Rutland Early Years or Ofsted (existing childminders are able to transfer from Ofsted to Rutland Early Years) are both options for accessing a rewarding career in childminding.
However, as childminders ourselves, we understand that you can sometimes feel isolated, confused by the amount of information you need take in and overloaded by paperwork. dealing direct with Ofsted, it can even seem difficult to get a straight answer when you have a concern, which can be very frustrating.
As a regulatory body, recognised by Ofsted, we are here to help. We will give you a definitive answer to queries, visit you when you are not quite sure, give you ideas to streamline your paperwork, and be there to support you, meaning you never need feel isolated. We offer a safety net that you may not get when registered with other bodies.
There are lots of reasons to transfer your registration from Ofsted to an agency like Rutland Early Years, and we'd be thrilled to be able to support you on your early years journey.
