sorry i havnt got a clue 'how' you do it or how it all works but it is supposed to be simple! LOL!
im sure if you contacted some agencies they would be able to tell you 'how' it all works.
If you ask for a qualified nanny with an up to date 1st aid certificate (not at all unreasonable!) then the £96 will include their CRB checks (tho most nannies have these anyway, at least if job is through agency).
Try www.nannyjob.co.uk where you can advertise your position AND search for nannies looking for work in your area.
Their is also nanny select.co.uk (or it may be .com) but i think parenst have to pay to use that (where as nannies dont!)
Lunavix is right in saying that the Home Child Carer scheme is nolonger in operation. It used to be administered by Ofsted and meant that a Registered Childminder cared for your child, at your home - rather than their home.
Nannies & Childminders who care for children in the child's own home can now become an Approved Childcarer (also known as Home Child Carer) through the Childcare Approval Scheme .
The scheme is administered by Nestor Healthcare. The contact number is 0845 7678 111. You can call them to check the details on the Approved Childcarer's approval letter. Nestor Healthcare have not made any provision for parents to find out how to contact Approved Childcarers (daft isn't it) but hey call them anyway and see what you can get. If thay phob you off to CIS (Children's Information Service), CIS DO NOT LIST Approved Childcarers (at least, Surrey CIS will not do so).
The only Approved Childcarer I have come across so far is this one , though that won't be of any help to you alas not in you Wangle, as not located in Cornwall area.
If anyone is able to get a list of Approved Childcarer's from their local CIS, please can you post details of which CIS you get it from - as I am aware that some CIS's are considering listing, while others refuse outright to do so.
