surely it is better for childminders to spend time with children, showing them many different things, to help their knowledge and prepare them for when they start school, instead of letting them watch tv, while the childminder does their paperwork.

Why is this idea important?

because of the paperwork involved now, many childminders will give up, as they are unable to do the paperwork to what ofsted want. my wife is one who is seriously thinking of giving up something she loves doing, ie looking after young children, because she has trouble doing the paperwork side. over the years she has looked after very many children, and they all think the world of her. they even bring their own children to her to look after. teachers at the local schools know that children that my wife looked after are ready for school, and are nearly always put into the top grade. surely something can be done to put children first and not paperwork.
