Earlier this year we sent you a legal Notice outlining the proposed changes to your conditions of registration. This meant you could apply to vary the maximum number of children you look after.
If we did not receive a response to this Notice you will have received a second Notice confirming your new conditions of registration. If you submitted an application to vary the maximum number of children you look after, we are continuing to process these applications and will respond to you once your application had been determined.
If you have applied to vary your conditions of registration or are content with the conditions in your legal Notice and do not need to do anything you must read the updated regulations and changes to National Minimum Standards.
If you want to increase the maximum number of children you can look after
If you still want to make an application to increase the maximum number of children you are registered for, you can do this at any time. You must submit the application form for increasing the number of children you look after. Information and the form are available on our 'Apply to vary your conditions of registration' page. Guidance about filling in the form is available from our ‘How to complete your variation form’ page.
If you are looking after more children than you are registered to look after, you may be doing so in breach of your conditions of registration. Breaching your conditions of registration is a serious matter and may lead to civil or criminal enforcement action.
If you need to vary any other conditions of your registration
You can apply to vary other changes to your conditions of registration such as change of address for child minders at any time using our forms. However, you must await our approval of your application. Failure to do so may amount to a breach of your conditions of registration.
