The nanny must apply as a HOME CHILDCARER and NOT as a childcare provider on domestic premises which typically applies for childminders.
The registration process can take up to 12 weeks to be approved and once gained you should always keep a copy of your OFSTED certificate of approval – gaining a new copy takes time and is costly.
Typically the nanny commences the registration and is refunded by the employer as it is for the employer’s financial gain.
The application fee is £103 plus the cost of DBS. The £103 fee is renewable annually.
Public Liability Insurance circa £75 - £100
Paediatric First Aid – 12 hour; valid
Recognised Childcare professional qualification

How does Ofsted determine if a nanny is suitable?
A nanny can be refused registration if he/she has been previously disqualified, or is deemed unsuitable, fails to pay the fee or lives with someone who is disqualified.
A nanny must inform Ofsted if she decides to stop the registration.
Once registered as certificate is issued and confirms that the nanny is registered to the VOLUNTARY part of the Childcare register, once registered the nanny must continue to meet the registration criteria and can be inspected at any time. If a complaint is received the nanny and setting will be inspected.
