Note: Please bear in mind that this is a discussion board, not a place to advertise childcare vacancies or recruit childminders/nannies etc. We don't mind the odd mumsnet regular mentioning that they're looking for a job/mindee (although you're probably better off in MN Local) but repeated job "ads" and posts from nanny/babysitting agencies aren't fair to people who are paying for small business ads. Do feel free to report any you see. Thanks, MNHQ.

Childminders- over 5's equivalent to a learning journey?

I'm about to take on a 6 year old (first mindee) and suddenly had a thought- is it compulsory to have a equivalent to a learning journey for over 5's? I think i'll probably do something similar to it, but obvs wont link it to eyfs, but is it something that Ofsted will be looking for? They didn't seem the slightest bit interested in anything other that the EYFS when they inspected me which left me a bit confused about the expectations for the provision of over 5s. I find the childcare register leg. a bit vague and now can't find a copy of it online!

I don't do anything paperwork wise for over 5's. I do take photos I email them to parents every now and then but that's about it.

I don't do any paperwork for over 5's either - except for contracts obviously. I occasionally email photos if we've done something particularly interesting, but Ofsted were quite happy with it at my last inspection a few months ago.

The only learning/developmental requirements for CMs are in the EYFS, there is no equivalent for older children.
