Parents in England who regularly look after friends' children and receive a "reward" for doing so must register as childminders, regulator Ofsted says.

It said most parents would be exempt but those who babysat for more than two hours at a time, or for more than 14 days per year, should be registered.

The "reward" could be money or free baby-sitting in return, it said.

I imagine it was not designed to be like this but a slight lack of thought in the law and regulations has led to it being like that. I would imagine that in time, it will be amended.

"Generally" mothers who looked after each other's children were not providing childminding for which registration was required because the care was for less than two hours or took place on fewer than 14 days in a year, he said.

Close relatives of children, such as grandparents, siblings, aunts or uncles, were exempt from the rules, he added.

The other point that puts a completely different light on things is that you are exempt from this ofsted rule if the care takes place in the childrens home...........so you can look after your next door neighbours kids as long as you take your kids round to their house........
