Childminding Information

Childminders provide opportunities for care, education and play in their own homes for children under 5 years and for school aged children. They are self-employed and negotiate terms and conditions directly with parents. A flexible service is usually provided all year round.

All childminders are required to register with the Care Inspectorate. Help (including financial help) is available to those interested.

Lists of names and addresses of registered childminders are available from Schools, Learning and Education, 7-13 Wolfcraig, Dumbarton Road, Stirling FK8 2LQ, tel: 01786 233179.
