Why a childminder agency?

Why did the Government introduce Childminder Agencies? This is an excerpt taken from the Department of Education’s Consultation Document:

Childminder agencies will be able to register childminders and provide them with training, business support, advice, and help to find parents seeking childcare … The Government wants to make more great childcare available for children, and to provide more choice and flexibility for parents … We are enabling the setting up of childminder agencies to encourage more people to take up childminding, to offer greater support for childminders, and to improve quality.

In 2014 the Government amended the Childcare Act 2006 to enable those who would otherwise be obliged to register with Ofsted, to register with a childminder agency instead.

As an agency, the SCA is registered with and inspected by Ofsted (registration number: CMA000026).
