A new Childminder Briefing Session will be taking place on Thursday 21 April 2022 from 6pm to 8pm via Microsoft Teams which is free to download.

The session gives people who are interested in becoming a childminder an insight of the role and the training required before registering with Ofsted.

It is an opportunity for people to find out if this is the right career path for them and the steps they will need to take before they become a childminder.

Childminders are qualified, experienced professionals with paediatric first aid training and expertise in child development.

They are regulated and inspected by bodies such as Ofsted and required to deliver the Early Years Foundation Stage framework in line with all other Ofsted registered childcare providers to ensure that children learn, develop, and are kept healthy and safe.

Common questions will be answered during the session including:
• Do I need childcare experience?
• What qualifications do I need to become a childminder?
• What financial help can I get to become a childminder?

The role of Ofsted and North Lincolnshire Council relating to childminding will be explained as will training opportunities, the Introduction to Working Within the EYFS (IWWEYFS) and support that can be provided by the Early Years Team.

To book a place on the Childminder Briefing Session or for further information, email earlyyearsteam@northlincs.gov.uk or call 01724 297000.

Please note that a fee of £21.25 is required if you wish to attend the Childminder Briefing Session.
