Things to consider when applying to register
If you're considering setting up a registered childcare setting, make sure you get the right information and support first to avoid unnecessary costs and delays.
Fees are not currently applicable but this may change in the future.
Make sure that you read the Statutory Requirements for the type of childcare you are setting up so you can make an informed decision about becoming registered.
These different types of setting are:
Early Years settings (caring for children aged birth to five)
Early Years Statutory Requirements
Childhood settings (caring for children aged three to 12 years)
Childhood Statutory Requirements (three to 12 years)
Daycare of Children Law
You should also understand the requirements of the
Day Care of Children (Jersey) Law, 2002 before opening a registered childcare setting.
When consider yourself to be compliant with the Statutory Requirements related to the type of setting you wish to register and have submitted your application, we will arrange a visit to the premises you hope to use.
In order to give time for any updates/changes or work to be completed, all reports and certificates relating to the premises and staff to be employed must be seen by CEYS at least two weeks before the proposed opening date.
After the site visit, we will contact you to let you know if we provisionally agree your application for registration.
