The List of childminder agencies provides contact information for childminder agencies (CMAs) that are open for applications.
CMAs register childminders and providers of childcare on domestic premises (a group of 4 or more childminders) and help them with training, business support, advice and finding parents. CMAs may also cover some of the upfront costs involved in becoming registered.
Ofsteds CMA inspection report page lists all registered CMAs including those who are not registering new childminders.
Childminders and providers of childcare on domestic premises provide childcare to children outside of the childs home.
Childminders and providers of childcare on domestic premises can choose to register with either a CMA or Ofsted.
