                   Expanding SCA                   

We are introducing lots of new childminders in various locations, as well as lots of training courses. We will continue to hold our Support Groups for our SCA Childminders, old and new! Supporting them in any way we can, offering advice and tips to help with their careers. We are working alongside Ofsted, Job Centres, Local Authorities and College's for Further Education.  We are continuing to grow and expand helping new childminders receive the correct training for their job roles. 

Parent Matching Service

We are excited to introduce our new parent matching service, this will help parents to match up with the most suitable childminders due to their location, experience and qualifications. All of our childminders will have an up to date profile showing their qualifications, requirements and location. This also gives us a chance to do an initial assessment of local childminders in their area. We are aiming to provide the best suited childminders to the parents, we will look at location, availability and qualifications.
