Childminding Insurance

Childminding Insurance

Many home insurance policies cover childminding for up to two additional children and can be extended to mind up to 6 children. Please check with your home insurance provider and inform them that you are providing a childminding service out of your home. Withholding of that information may lead to claim refusal on the grounds of non-disclosure.

If you decide to go with a separate childminding insurance scheme, Childminding Ireland offers a tailored insurance package that allows cover for up to 6 minded children. As of 1 March, 2013 Insured Registered Membership fee is €155 per year all inclusive.
