                Caring, supporting and promoting quality home-based childcare in Surrey.

While we want anyone to use this site, and most of the information supplied can be use by all childminders,  please remember that we are working for Surrey home-based childcarers, so the information is for Surrey County Council childcarers only.

If you live/work outside of Surrey, Please contact your own local council/ authority for updated information on your own area's safeguarding and other policies. Thank you.

This page gives you details about support and guidance. For paperwork advice please click here.
