There are no pre-scheduled dates for childminding briefing sessions in Poole. Instead these are arranged on an individual basis. Sessions can typically be scheduled within 3 weeks of your initial enquiry and take place at a central venue in Poole.
Briefings cost £30 and will provide you with further information on the process of registering as a childminder with Ofsted, including timescales, costs, qualifications required, the Early Years Foundation Stage Statutory Framework and safeguarding requirements. A comprehensive toolkit containing key documents will also be issued at the briefing. Register your interest below if you’d like to request an individual briefing session.
You can also access our factsheet about becoming a registered childminder here.
Please note briefing sessions scheduled via Poole local authority are only available to you if you live within the Borough of Poole.
If you live in Bournemouth and Christchurch or the wider Dorset area, please sign up to their registered briefing sessions.
