How do I start a childminding business?

Need a little bit of advice, I look after my grandchildren a couple of days a week and I'm finding it tough to get a job to fit around them. So I thought what about being a childminder, then I can look after them and many one more, or a couple after school. 

If there are any childminders who can offer some advice that would be very helpful.

Thank you 



The best thing to do is call your local council and ask them if they have an evening where you can find out how to be a child-minder, or you could see if there's a child-minding association in your local area and find out from them.
