Community childminder

Are you a childminder with a passion for special educational needs and disabilities (SEND)

Family Services Commissioning (FSC) is looking to recruit SEND childminders as part of the community childminder project.

The aim of the community childminder project is to have SEND childminders in each district who would offer free early education to families whose children have SEND.

During a recent survey with parents of SEND children, it was found that parents were more likely to take up their free early education if their provider had specialist training.

FSC would expect the SEND childminders to work closely with the specialist early years development centres (SEYDC), SEND family centre champions and parent champions.

FSC would expect you to undertake any relevant online training; any specialist training needed would be paid for by FSC.

Once we have an idea of the numbers of childminders interested, we will arrange a meeting to discuss further.

If you are interested and would like to find out more information about this project, please email karen.mumbray@hertfordshire.gov.uk
