Child Minding Course

Our child care courses include the CACHE Level 3 Child Minding course, which will give you an understanding of how to set up a Home-Based Childcare Service (CYPOP5) unit, and will prepare you to work as a home-based child carer, nanny or child minder. It is also ideal for those child minders who are looking to set up their own business as it covers business start-up.

About Child Minding

Child minders look after and care for children in a domestic setting, ensuring the safety of the children while providing a stimulating environment. Child minders most often run their own business from the comfort and convenience of their own home. If you want to experience a dynamic and rewarding career working with children, gain the flexibility and benefits of working from home, and even look after your own children while earning, then this could be the perfect career for you.

What Could I Do After Taking This Child Minding Course?

Start your own business. In addition to teaching relevant aspects of child care, our CACHE Level 3 Child Minding course also supports the development of policies and procedures relevant to registration and the basic business skills needed to set up a home-based child care service. Child minders earn an average of £19,000+*/year.

Obtain a diploma. This paper-based or online child care course can also form part of the full CACHE Level 3 Diploma for the Children's and Young People's Workforce should you wish to progress to this.

Please note: You will require access to the internet to complete this course.
