Child Minding: Registration

Volume 467: debated on Tuesday 13 November 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for Children, Schools and Families at what level he intends to fix the registration fee for registered childminders on the compulsory early years register; what account will be taken of affordability in setting that level; and if he will make a statement. (163329)

Our proposals for the levels of fees for the early years register and the compulsory part of the Ofsted Childcare Register from September 2008 will be published for consultation shortly. The proposed fee levels and support arrangements for providers will take into account provider income information from the 2006 Childcare and Early Years Providers' survey.
