There are no changes for childminders following yesterday’s announcement from the First Minister, Childminders can continue to operate as normal under Level 4 guidance, ie to all children, not only key workers and vulnerable children.
The FM’s statement applies only to extending supplementary guidance for daycare of children’s services including out of school care to the end of January. We will keep you updated on this as information is shared.
