Childminding Week 2019 is coming!

Childminding Week 2019 is coming!

Our award-winning Childminding Week is back! Last year was another massive success, and we want Childminding Week 2019 to be bigger than ever! 

Throughout the exciting week in May (6-12 May), SCMA will be actively promoting childminders and the reinforcing their invaluable place in the Early Learning and Childcare workforce - helping children achieve their full potential and overall wellbeing.

Just like the previous years, we want you to get excited too - have fun and celebrate the fantastic work you do for your minded children and join the Childminding Week conversation by sharing your activities and fun ideas with us. 

Become a Childminding Week Champion and share your photos, stories and adventures with us on social media between 6-12 May using the hashtag #CheerforChildminding and we'll share them across Scotland.

Childminders across Scotland are gearing up to celebrate the return of ‘Roary’ our cuddly mascot from Childminding Week 2017, who is returning home to Scotland for this year’s event to help us #CheerforChildminding. 

You can follow his homecoming journey and adventures via Facebook and Twitter
