Am now re-registering on voluntary part as nanny (previous employer didn't want to pay fees as they couldnt use vouchers so registration lapsed; new players CAN use vouchers and will pay for me to register.)

Anyone completed the process recently to give me an idea of timescale? (as "home childcarer")

They've quoted 12 weeks but not sure I believe them...confused

Longest time I've heard of (anecdotally via the net) is 15 months but I don't think the nanny in question actually sent any of the stuff off right the first time because if it wasn't one thing it was another (the 1st aid wasn't right, she didn't have the addresses for her CRB, hadn't put her insurance in place before sending off the form so had to get that before they would process it etc.).

12 weeks sounds roughly right as it's the CRB which is usually the problem and they seem to take around 3 months. Just make sure you've completed the form correctly and sent the bits of paper you need to.

mine took almost 3 months, 2 years ago.

(Sept 1st til end November)

everything was done and correct at time of posting / signing, and id had a crb about a year before.

I know people who have had it take a LOT longer than me!

Thanks all. I'm hoping for a quick go as I have all documentation in place. Just have to wait and see I guess.

The CRB can be the problem. My nanny had all the documentation but the CRB delayed the application by a further 8 months after all the other document checks etc had been done. Unfortunately it can be just luck how long it takes.
