Childminders Kildare County Childcare Committee can support you to as a childminder to have an appropriate programme of activities suitable for children in your age range, through one to one mentoring supports, telephone support, information articles and peer review documents.
We are awaiting the implementation of the draft childminding action plan, and the Department for Children and Youth Affairs have recently appointed 6 regional childminding development officers, who have developed a new Childminding Information pack to assist us to support both current and start-up childminders.
Download the pack here: A Guide to Becoming a childminder
Also available: Sample Policies and Procedures, Sample Record Keeping Forms, and Guidelines on Planning a childminding business in your home, email email@example.com for support regarding these.
