The Childminding Team aims to make sure children receive the highest quality care in childminding settings in Hackney. We provide information, support, and training to all registered childminders in Hackney.

Childminders conference

The Hackney Childminders conference takes place on Saturday 7 March 2020. The conference aims to increase practitioners understanding of the development of 2 year olds and how to work with them effectively. The day will be packed with great speakers and a range of workshops. We look forward to seeing you there.


A range of information and resources are available to support you in your role as a childminder. These include safeguarding requirements, policies and course materials. The resources are accessed using a username and password. If you do not have the login details please contact Pippa Williams.
