Relatives Caring for Children

 

Does my mother/sister/brother who cares for my child have to be registered?

Current legislation allows relatives who care for a child to do so without having to be registered, in fact The Care Standards Act 2000 specifically prohibits relatives from registering.

Ofsted states that if you are caring for children who are closely related to you, including grandchildren, then this is not considered to be childcare and as such will not be registered.

Any changes in the law and the implementation of the relevant Acts/Legislation will be indicated here. For further information contact:
