OMG, i had paid more last year but not THIS much!!!..how can most childminders afford to pay £200 a year to be regsitered with?..we HAVE to be registered, its not an option so theyve basically got us all over a barrel..i cant beleive the amount...also it has 2 section, both show £200..an application fee and annual reg fee...surely this doesnt mean we have to pay both??!!!
Looks to me as though it is * £30 for childminders * £103 for home childcarers
If you are not classified as a Childminder, or Home Childcarer then the cost is £200... "£200 for childcare providers on non-domestic or domestic premises who operate for three or more hours each day and for five or more days a week and for 45 or more weeks a year and who were registered on or after 1 September 2008."
OMG Nick you are right..thankyou for bringing me back down!...the way its written here shows a column saying childmindders in dark letter with lists below so it looks like if you are a cm and you fall under any of these catagories but after what you have said, ive re-read it and you are right...THANKYOU...PANIC OVER EVERY ONE 8-)...pinky must read properly and NOT jump in with both feet
