Have you thought about becoming a childminder?

Devon needs more childminders! Enrol on the ‘Preparing to be a childminder course’ to understand what is involved in setting up and running a childminding business.

For £50, this two-day course, run by Devon Early Years and Childcare Service, will get you ready for Ofsted registration.

Day one will cover Ofsted registration, the welfare requirements of the early years foundation stage (EYFS), and the childcare market.

Day two will look at the learning and development section of the EYFS, while the afternoon will focus on play.

The course is running on:

  • 13 and 20 September 2019 – Newcourt Community Centre, Exeter
  • 17 and 24 September 2019 – Moors Edge Children’s Centre, Newton Abbott
  • 5 and 12 February 2020 – Taw View, Barnstaple

To book your place, please contact the Early Years team.

If you would like to know more, come along to a free, informal information session at Larkbeare House, Exeter on 5 September 2019 from 10.30am – 11.30am. Please email Early Years  beforehand to let them know are attending.

*To register as a childminder, you must also attend a paediatric first aid course (£65) and a safeguarding awareness course (fully funded). Dates for these courses can be found on the DEL website.
