SCMA Membership

Membership of a trusted organisation like SCMA gives you peace of mind, invaluable support and a chance to make a difference. It says that you're professional, informed and committed to quality.

Childminders are professional Early Learning and Childcare providers, registered with the Care Inspectorate, who work from their own homes. They offer high-quality early learning and childcare in a home-from-home environment and your child will benefit from low adult-to-child ratios and a variety of important developmental experiences.

“It’s an all-round support package that enables me to do my job with peace of mind.”

SCMA member from Fife

“Lots of childminding information is available, I can advertise at no extra cost, and there are great training opportunities.”

SCMA member from Glasgow
