What is a Childminder Development Grant (CMDG)?

The purpose of the CMDG is to offer an incentive, in the form of a small capital grant, to Childminders to enhance and support their awareness of quality early learning and childcare.

The CMDG is designed to assist Childminders, already providing a childminding service in their own homes, to enhance safety/quality in the service through the purchase of small capital items, equipment, toys or minor adaptation costs. It may also give financial assistance to new or prospective Childminders with their initial set up costs.

All applicants must be committed to maintaining/improving the quality of their childminding service.
