My mom is an ofsted registered child minder. For the past year or so she has only cared for my dd. A few others on and off but has always done 2 days a week looking after dd. Which I pay her for (she is registered self employed)
The remainder of the week dd is at nursery. She has her 15 free hours there- nursery will not be offering the 30 free hours. I have read that the additional 15 hours can be used with a childminder. I have also researched it from a child minders prospective in terms of making the claim etc. Looks fairly straightforward. My question is - is there and rules against childminders claiming the 15 hours for children they are related to or is this allowed provided they are ofsted registered?
