NICMA the Childminding Association’s Childminding Development Officer, Liz Brown, is out and about this summer offering support and advice to parents about the benefits of using a registered childminder.

All registered childminders will have received training in Health & Safety, Safeguarding & Child Protection and Paediatric First Aid and are regularly inspected by their local Health & Social Care Trust Early Years Team to ensure they are delivering the highest standard of care.

An added benefit for parents using a registered childminder is the opportunity to access financial help with their childcare costs through the tax credit system.

Liz can also provide information about becoming a registered childminder yourself - if you are interested in sharing in the care and development of young children by becoming a self-employed day care provider and would like to find out more simply contact NICMA on 028 9181 1015 or visit the website - www.nicma.org.

Alternatively you can contact Liz direct on 0751 747 2271 or by email at liz.brown@nicma.org.
