Lewisham Council - Childminders


A childminder is anyone who works at home caring for other people's children under 18 years of age – usually while the parent works or is at college.

In this section​

All childminders must be registered with Ofsted. There are more than 400 registered childminders in the borough.

We no longer provide childminder training courses. These courses are now provided for Lewisham by STEEPtsa, (South Thames Early Education Partnership and Teaching School Alliance).
