Childminders offer a childcare service to parents, usually in their own home.

Childminders provide opportunities for care, education and play for children under five years and school-aged children in the safe and secure childminder's own home. Childminders are self- employed and can often provide a flexible service all year round

All childminders are registered with the Care Inspectorate and this is a legal requirement.

We currently have registered childminders in West Dunbartonshire Council. Contact details for each are listed below. Please contact Early Years Childcare at if further information is required.
