Childcare confusion

Hi everyone, I wonder if you could put my mind at rest here.

I look after my grandchildren once a week while my DD works.

Is it a case of she is allowed to bring them into house or should she stay on doorstep and the children hop over the threshold and enter the house while she goes off to work....

Thank you in advance :-)

It doesn’t matter does it? The risk is just the same whichever you do.

Well that is precisely what I thought.... thank you

I would think they you, your daughter and, your grandchildren, are in a childcare bubble so I'm thinking it would e fine for her to bring them in.

We are in childcare bubble and DD's allowed in.

i'm not sure. i know you are not allowed to socialise with the family you do childcare for.
so i guess the less contact indoors with the adults the better ? certainly no sitting down together, as that would be socialising. / discuss.
