Allow Ofsted registered childminders to receive funding for related children

We believe it is unjust that nurseries and preschools receive funding for children related to staff at the same rate as anyone else, while dedicated childminders can't receive funding for caring for a child who is related to them.

With the new funding to get parents working and help with childcare costs why can't an Ofsted registered childminder receive funding for a relative? This can mean parents have to use childminders that are further away, costing the parents fuel money etc to get the child there etc.
