Opportunities are available for anyone considering a new career in child care.

Childminding is a very rewarding career, building up relationships with children, parents and the family.

It is your own business that you run from your own home with support locally from other childminders, Early Years Services, and nationally the Scottish Childminding Association.

As a charitable group, childminders raise funds for activities throughout the year which enables them to organise different events for childminders and their charges to attend, such as:

Drop in

Fun day

Beep Beep day

Teddy Bear Picnic

Monthly meetings to discuss relevant issues

Training sessions organised through the Early Years Services
