Do a lot of reading on here and other forums about the day-to-day things that a childminder does. The paperwork for example, doing business accounts, typical costings and how to price your service.

Your local authority will have an introduction session, then have a course/or provide details of one. It can be a long process, 6 months plus.

Do contact your local authority, as I think it is still the case that many need you to do their particular course, not the PACEY one.
Plus your local authority may have some funding available (not much hope but you never know) for training courses.
