Clear

A childminder’s role is many and varied and can be described in a number of ways.  Gone are the days when childminders were seen as uneducated, low paid babysitters who were paid to keep an eye on the children whilst their parents spent a few hours at work.  The world has changed and with it the need for good quality childcare.  Parents are no longer content to pay someone to look after their child simply because they appear motherly and seem to like playing with children.  Parents now, quite rightly, express a wish to find a highly qualified, organised person who has the right skills to not only nurture their child but to educate and discipline them.

This course will provide you with all the underpinning knowledge to make a decision as to whether a career as a child minder is the right one for you.
