Sample letters to send to the Department for Education

It is very important that we send as many letters  to the DfE about childminder agencies as we can.

The content of the letter needs to be short and to the point, as we know from letters we sent in about the ratio issue and More Great Childcare in general, that the letters are not read fully and responses (when received) show that the letters had not been read.

It is the number of letters that is important – so please share these sample letters with as many people as possible – colleagues, Local Authority,membership organisations, family, friends, and neighbours.

If you use the sample letters – please make sure they are personal to you.

NB  The childminder one has address in the ‘Footer’  – please change to your own (if not included your address elsewhere)or just remove.

If you would rather – please compose your own short letter

Send all letters to
