Quality childcare support


Registered Childminders within Lancashire receive support from the Quality Childcare Development Team.
The Quality Childcare Development Team will offer support using the portfolio as a benchmark; guiding you and challenging your practice to enable you to reach a positive inspection outcome.  Please see the attached flyer for additional information on the support the team offer.
The Lancashire Childminding portfolio has been designed to support you, as a childminder, to reflect and develop your childminding business.  It will guide you in meeting the requirements of the Statutory Framework for the Early Years Foundation Stage.  The portfolio includes a CD with additional resources and support tools to help you reflect on and to develop your own systems.

The Quality Childcare Development Team provide support to Out of School settings registered with Ofsted and those registered through the school.
Support is tailored around the new Out of School Portfolio launched November 2016.  If you haven't received your portfolio please contact the team.
The portfolio alongside the support from your area Development Worker will provide a solid platform for you to reflect and challenge your current practice.  It will guide you in meeting the requirements and provides resources and tools for you to use and achieve a positive inspection outcome.
