Uploading your first document

Getting a document ready

To upload your document, you are going to need to prepare a digital copy of your physical document. Ideally, you would be using a scanner/photocopier to do this, but some high resolution digital photographs may also be accepted.

All uploads need to be of a good quality and clearly legible. The document would also have to be in one of the acceptable formats, currently JPEG images and PDF documents.

Uploading the document

1. Go to the My Documents area of Childcare.co.uk

My Documents link in menu

You can find a link to the My Documents area in the menu on the left hand side.

2. Click the Upload Document button

Depending on the type of document you are uploading, we may ask for some additional information. If you're uploading a Utility Bill, you can enter a title for your document, such as "Gas Bill". If you are uploading a registration certificate such as your Ofsted registration certificate, we might ask you for your reference number.
