Ofsted registration

Many families have access to childcare vouchers. If a nanny is Ofsted registered, she can accept these as part of her salary. To register with Ofsted, a nanny must hold (as a minimum) common core skills training in childcare, paediatric first aid, a DBS check registered with the update service, and nanny insurance.

As the employer receives the financial benefit of the nanny’s registration, we recommend the employer covers the cost of registration (£105 per year) with the nanny paying the associated costs (DBS check, first aid and insurance).

Click here to apply for Ofsted registration. Please contact Rosebud Nanny Agency for a step by step guide through the Ofsted registration process.


DBS checks

Rosebud Nanny Agency can apply for a DBS check on your behalf following your registration meeting. However, if you are not registered / prefer to apply yourself, this can be done via the site below. Please ensure you register your DBS certificate with the update service, also below.

First Aid

Rosebud Nanny Agency recommends two local first aid trainers. Both run paediatric first aid courses that meet the requirements for Ofsted registration, and are valid for 3 years.

Jacqui Dilley offers half of the training online followed by 1 day with Jacqui in Dunstable, or at your home (for a group of 6 or more).

Sarah McGuinness uses venues across Hertfordshire or can run courses at your home (for a group of 6 or more). The course runs over two days.

Chris and Laura at CL First Aid Training run courses across St Albans, Hertford, Northampton and Bedford. The course runs over two days.


All of the above first aid trainers offer a £5 discount if you mention Rosebud Nanny Agency at time of booking.


Common Core Skills Training

If you would like to apply for Ofsted registration but do not hold a Childcare qualification, you can take the Ofsted compliant Level 1 Common Core Skills Course. (Please note if you hold a level 2 or 3 in childcare, you do not need a separate Common Core Skills Course, as they are covered by your existing Certificate).

There are two ways to do Common Core Skills – either online or as a 1 day course.

BabyEm offer Common Core Skills training in London or online – contact Rosebud Nanny Agency for a 10% discount code.

Norma Lewis Training runs courses in both Bushey and Finchley.


Home organising

If you would like some help getting organised for a new baby, moving home, or just reclaiming some space in the attic, Systematic Homes can help. Rosebud Nanny Agency has personally worked with Systematic Homes, and highly recommends Joanne and her work.



Katharine Tate (also known as The Food Teacher) is a registered nutritional therapist and food teacher. Rosebud Nanny Agency works with Katharine to deliver courses aimed at nannies, giving them vital knowledge about food and nutrition to support the growing child including brain health, immunity, energy and sleep.

I  recommend a local company, Lily Loves Coco, for baby and child clothes (up to teenage!) Free delivery within 10 miles of SG5 and friendly, professional service from local mum Sarah. Lovely quality clothing and fast delivery service.
