How to use this list
This is a list of all registered childminders in the Borough of
Wandsworth who have notified the Family Information Service (FIS)
that they have vacancies. The list is arranged in postcode order from
the lowest to the highest. It therefore starts at SW8, North Battersea
and ends at SW19, Southfields/Wimbledon.
The list gives the postcode, contact details and the total vacancies the
childminder has a vacancy for. It describes the facilities available and,
where applicable, the schools childminders pick up children from.
What is a registered childminder?
A registered childminder is a person who looks after children under 8
years of age, for payment, in their own home, for more than 2 hours
per day. They are registered under the Childcare Act 2006.
Childminders have to register under the Ofsted Compulsory Register
(OCR) if they look after children aged 0 - 8 years and may register
under the Voluntary Childcare Register (VCR) if they look after
children over 8 years old.
To obtain registration they have to either meet the standards set out
in the OCR - Early Years Foundation Stage for 3 - 5 year olds and or
the standards set out in the OCR for 5 - 7 years old. The body that
registers Out of School Care is the Office for Standards in Education,
Children’s Services and Skills. Ofsted).

Ofsted Regulation
Ofsted inspect all childminders on a regular basis. At the end of the
inspection Ofsted will judge the quality of provision on a grading
system. Parents can ask to see the inspection report and the grades
awarded, or view it on the Ofsted Website:
The grades are:
Outstanding - exceptional provision with excellent outcomes for
Good - strong provision with effective outcomes for children
Satisfactory - acceptable provision with outcomes that could be
Inadequate - weak provision with unacceptable outcomes for children
General checks you should make
Be sure that the person who has the responsibility for the day care of
your child(ren) under eight years of age is registered with Ofsted and
has a current, valid certificate of registration. (Childcare Act 2006).
The certificate will state how many children the childminder can care
for and the ages they should be. (excluding their own children).
Check that the childminder has up-to-date Public Liability Insurance
and adequate car insurance and child safety equipment for cars if
they are to take your child out in their car.
General advice
Going to a childminder for the first time or moving to a new
childminder is a big step in the life of a young child. To help your child
settle happily with the childminder, it is essential that he/she be
introduced gradually before being left all day. If at all possible, you
and your child should make several visits to the home of the
childminder before placement.

Questions you should ask
Childminders and parents are advised to have a written contract,
which should cover the following:
 The hours of childminding;
 The charges to be made and what this will cover;
 Whether a retaining fee should be paid (for part-time/term-time
only placements);
 Action that will be taken in any medical emergency concerning
your child;
 Arrangements during the childminder’s periods of
 Arrangements during your child’s periods of sickness/holidays;
 The period of notice required
Other matters you should discuss include outings, playgroup fees,
discipline, where your child will sleep, what play equipment is
available, car journeys and details of any person other than
yourselves who may collect your child.
You should also discuss with the childminder your child’s diet,
sleeping habits, comforter and any particular needs.
A childminder is not required to care for your child when he/she is
sick. It is important that you notify the childminder if you are going to
be late collecting your child, if your child is not attending because of
sickness and you give adequate notice of impending holidays.
