Childminding professionals membership

Childminder with two children

PLEASE NOTE: The Early Years Alliance is currently in the process of switching over to a new customer relationship system which is being introduced to improve the services we provide to our members and supporters. 

Because of the switchover, processing any new memberships – including access to free EduCare training – may be delayed. We expect to be operating as normal as soon as possible. Thank you so much for your patience and understanding in this matter.

Our membership package for childminding professionals is designed to help you give children and families the best early years care. We make sure you have the support you need as an Ofsted registered childminding professional.

From just £47 a year (inc. VAT) you can access all of this support:
