The drop-ins will provide childminders the opportunity to come together with their children to enjoy fun activities linked to their children’s learning and development and strengthen friendships and links between other local childminders.

A Childminding Development Officer from the Council will be running the sessions which will give all childminders regular access to support they may need.

We recognise that childminders may sometimes find it difficult to access services to enrich the needs of the children they care for. Therefore, we will be inviting professionals such as Area SENCOs (Special Educational Needs Coordinators), Curriculum Leaders, Speech and Language Therapists, Health Visitors, Safeguarding Advisors, Early Help Advisors and FEEE Officers to attend some of these drop-ins. A schedule of these visits is available on the Events and Training page of The Hub: http://wftradedservices.uk/Training.

The drop-ins are free for childminders registered for the Free Early Education Entitlement (FEEE). There is a small charge of £1.50 for the first child and 50p for each additional child for those minders who are not FEEE-registered. If you would like to know more about offering the FEEE and the registration process, please visit The Hub: https://thehub-beta.walthamforest.gov.uk/commissionedtodeliverFEEE

A fun and interactive Paediatric First Aid course covering the requirements of OfSTED and the EYFS Framework.
*Both sessions MUST be attended*

The 2-session course (12 hours in total) is approved by the First Aid Industry Body (FAIB). This course is assessed more around practical ability and, although there is a theory assessment, this is written in such a way that it is easier for those with English as a second language to complete.
This course meets the needs for the EYFS Framework in the same way as the Level 3 Qualification.

The 2-session course can be physically strenuous at times and comfortable clothing should be worn. Please - no skirts or dresses as the course is practical and will involve some lying down.
There is a one hour break for lunch on each day but lunch will not be provided - only refreshments.
This course is renewed by re-taking a Paediatric First Aid course every three years.
