Guidance for Childminders

The following guidance has been prepared by Food Standards Agency (FSA) and the Scottish Food Enforcement Liaison Committee for registered Childminders in domestic premises providing a food service to those in their care. The guidance has been produced in response to questions raised over whether childminders should register as food business operators. This guidance is aimed solely at registered childminders in domestic premises and is not intended for nannies and home child carers or care operating from non-domestic premises such as nurseries, care homes and schools.

Where can I get further advice?

Registered childminders can also discuss these matters and other concerns with their local authority.
