What's it about?

Children may be allocated a childminding place as part of a range of support services that the family might access. 

The needs of the children and families vary considerably, including those in crisis and those living with complex and enduring difficulties. The aim of the course is to provide an opportunity to explore a range of issues which would help childminders address the needs of children who are ‘vulnerable’ and require some additional support due to their individual needs or social backgrounds. Some children may have been in care or may be referred to childminders in order to improve their situation and avoid being placed in care.

Why should I attend?

By attending this course, you will learn how to:

  • Explore a range of issues to help address the needs of children who are ‘vulnerable’.
