Working in childcare

If you are interested in becoming a childminder, visit the Scottish Childminding Association website. 

The Care Inspectorate's Childminding Library is an online resource for both prospective and practising childminders.

The Care Inspectorate have also produced ‘Registering and Running a Childminding Service – What you need to know’ which is really helpful for anyone considering a career in childminding.


If you are currently working in childcare, or are interested in working in childcare, you can email us about training courses.
