From UK's Daily Mail:
Mothers are banned from looking after each other's children
By Sarah Harris
Two working mothers have been banned from looking after each other's toddlers because they are not registered childminders.
The close friends' private arrangement had let them both return to part-time jobs at the same company.
However, a whistleblower reported them to the education watchdog Ofsted [Office of Standards in Education] and it found their informal deal broke the law.
This was because little-known rules say friends cannot gain a 'reward' by looking after a child for more than two hours outside the child's home without agreeing to a number of checks including one from the Criminal Records Bureau.
Although the mothers never paid each other, their job-sharing deal was judged to be a 'reward'.
The women, who have not been identified, had given birth at similar times. When their daughters passed their first birthday, they decided to return to work part-time at the same firm.
The women have now put their girls into official childcare 'meaning they can't work as they wished due to the elevated costs', friends say.
It's a wonder these mothers were allowed to have their children without a license.
I suppose parenting licenses are coming next. With exemptions for illegal aliens who want anchor babies, of course.
