To become registered first you will need to attend a pre-registration briefing which is held by the local authority where you will find out more about becoming a Childminder. To find out when the next session is being held contact the Family Information Service, Central Library, Smithford Way, Coventry, telephone number 024 7683 4373, or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
Following the briefing session a member of the Childminding Support Team will visit your home to carry out a home safety check.
