OFSTED Registration

Are you looking for an Ofsted registered nanny? Or are you a nanny, looking to become registered? Did you know that Little Ones can help provide 3 out of the 4 items required by Ofsted for registration?

For families seeking a nanny who is Ofsted registered, this will open up your candidate search. By finding the right nanny, and then putting them through the training, you can quickly register the nanny of your choice on the Ofsted Voluntary Register, without limiting your search to already registered candidates.

For nannies, some families ask for Ofsted registered nannies as a requirement in their search criteria. By completing the right courses, you will be ready to register, should the need arise.

Ofsted registration costs £103 per year.
