Get ready for Childminding Week 2018

Get ready for Childminding Week 2018

7-13 May | Six days to celebrate Scotland’s quality childminders and one Wild Day Out!

Last year’s award-winning event was such a massive success, we want Childminding Week 2018 to be even bigger! This is an important year for childminding in Scotland and we need all of you to #CheerforChildminding, raise the profile and improve recognition of childminding.

All SCMA members will have received their exclusive Childminding Week 2018 Toolkit alongside your spring issue of Childminding magazine.  The Toolkit is full of ideas, activities and tools to help you get ready for Childminding Week and get involved.

It's vitally important that childminders are recognised more widely as a valuable part of the professional childcare workforce.  After all, you are already providing high quality, flexible care and learning experiences for more than 30,000 children across Scotland.

...but we need your help!

We want you to get excited, have fun and celebrate the fantastic work you do for your minded children. Join the Childminding Week conversation by sharing your activities and fun ideas with us.

Whether you’re part of a large childminding group hosting a Childminding Week funday, or a solo childminder taking part in a special messy play activity within your setting – this is your chance to shine and #CheerforChildminding.

Become a Childminding Week 2018 Champion and share your photos, stories and adventures with us between 7-13 May and we'll share them across Scotland. … and you could WIN!

If we all cheer together, we'll make a bigger noise!
