Becoming the Nominated Person

Link to the nominated person information: https://www.gov.uk/guidance/childminders-and-childcare-providers-register-with-ofsted/daycare-childcare-on-non-domestic-premises-registration

‘The person applying to register can also be the nominated individual if they are either:

  • a member of the governing body
  • the most senior person in the organisation with direct responsibility for childcare

They cannot be the appointed manager, unless the manager is also a member of the governing body.

A member of an organisation’s governing body is responsible and accountable for the governance of that organisation. This does not apply to members who only have voting or attendance rights (such as shareholders).’
