Some families may prefer a nanny that is Ofsted registered or willing to apply on acceptance of the job. Or they may require a nanny to be registered in order to recieve Child Care Vouchers.
The process can take some time and requires filling in an application form as a ‘Home Childcarer’. You will also need Public Liability Insurance and a valid paediatric first aid certificate.
More information can be found on the Ofsted website.
- Application fee – £103 (includes CRB check)
- Public Liability Insurance – ranges between £70 – £90
- 12 hour Paediatric First Aid – approx £120 (unless the nanny already holds a valid certificate)
- ICP Course – approx £220 (if the nanny requires childcare training this should be verified with OFSTED).
