The 2023 Spring Budget introduced a £1200 Government grant for new childminders joining a Childminder Agency instead of direct Ofsted registration. This incentive, highlighting the enhanced package you get with an agency, covers all your training & setup costs.
Once you begin working as a tiney childminder, you’ll be eligible to claim the grant. While there are some upfront training costs, this means you’ll be reimbursed for all of them once you start working.
