CHILDMINDING AND DAYCARE FOR CHILDREN UNDER AGE 12
The ‘Minimum Standards’ were launched in July 12 as a means of providing a consistent level of quality for all childminding and daycare services and to ensure a consistent regional approach to registration and inspection.
There are 2 documents relating to Minimum Standards:
- Childminding and DayCare for Children under age 12 – Minimum Standards – July 12
- Childminding and DayCare for Children under age 12 – Minimum Standards – IMPLEMENTATION GUIDANCE – July 13

USER GUIDE FOR CHILDMINDERS
This User Guide is based on the Childminding and Day Care for Children Under Age 12 Minimum Standards and has been specifically written for childminders. It is not a replacement for the Minimum Standards but does cover each Standard, how it applies to you and the minimum you will need to provide for inspection.
