If you have ever thought about becoming a childminder then come and find out more at Portsmouth City Council's childminder recruitment event at 6.30pm, Wednesday 17 January at Landport Family Hub in Portsmouth.


The free, two-hour briefing session will give you all the information you need about becoming a childminder, including:

  • Helping you to consider the challenges and rewards of childminding
  • Providing an understanding of the role of the Local Authority
  • Taking you through the Ofsted Registration Process
  • Supporting you to gain an understanding of The Early Years Foundation Stage Statutory Framework and Guidance Documents 

There will also be an opportunity to hear from a current childminder and ask any questions you may have. 


Councillor Hannah Hockaday, cabinet member for education, said: "Portsmouth childminders provide a professional childcare service for hundreds of children in the city. If you think you have the skills to set up as a childminder then please come along to the event to find out more about the next steps and how we can support you in making it your career."
