Barnet Childminding Team is part of Barnet's Children's Service. All registered Childminders in Barnet are offered support from their Childminding Quality and Support Officer (CQSO). The CQSO is there to empower Childminders through help, advice and guidance, seeking to support them to provide a high quality service for children and their families. The CQSO will also signpost Childminders to appropriate training opportunities. We also run Barnet Quality Assurance scheme (BQAS), which enables Childminders to demonstrate and be acknowledged when they are offering above and beyond high quality practice in all aspects of their service.
We can also offer advice to parents who have questions about the service a Childminder can offer. If you are interested in looking into becoming a registered Childminder we offer regular Childminding Information Sessions where you can come and find out more about this exciting career. Contact FIS - 0800 389 8312 for details of venues and to book onto Childminding Information Sessions.
