What insurance do childminders need?

Public liability insurance for childminders

Public liability insurance is popular with many professional childminders, providing valuable protection for if someone is injured or their property damaged because of your business. Simply Business offers between £1 million and £5 million in cover, to protect you against this cost.

Other childminders’ insurance

If you have employees, contractors, casual workers or temporary staff, you’re required by law to take out employers’ liability insurance. It’ll cover claims from employees who’ve been injured or become seriously ill as a result of working for you, so keep this in mind when choosing your childminders’ insurance policy.

Childminding insurance policy details

  • Make sure you read your policy documents carefully and that you understand any exclusions that may apply
  • Try to find out what level of insurance your clients might expect before you decide what cover to buy
  • If you employ people, even in your own home, you’re legally obliged to take out employers’ liability insurance. Not doing this could lead to a heavy fine
