It is important that parents feel they leave their children in safe hands.
At present, it is not compulsory for childcarers to be Ofsted registered.
By making sure that ALL those that want to work as childcarers are Ofsted registered and have First Aid qualifications, the Government is helping women to go back to work.
At present, families spend a considerable amount of time searching for unreliable childcare via sites like Facebook.
There is the potential here to put in place a system which means that those wanting to have a career in education or work in schools complete an internship as a childcarer as well.
The above would translate into the formal professionalisation of the childcarer role.
