We believe that the provision of good quality care and play is vital for the all-round education and development of children, enabling them to gain important life skills.
Our vision for the service is:
To promote the understanding and benefits of quality care, play and education to childminders, parents, carers, other professionals and services.
Leap Ahead, the Achieving for Children Childminder Agency, is registered by Ofsted and childminders on the Agency are registered and inspected by the Agency rather than directly by Ofsted.
Childminders in the Agency are self-employed and will be responsible for all decisions relating to their business, such as fee setting and filling of vacancies.
Leap Ahead is an Ofsted-registered childminder agency – registration number CA000010.
