National Childminding Week is taking place this year from 4th to 11th June 2011. This year’s theme is "aspiration," reflecting the fact that registered Childminders are uniquely placed to nurture interests and build on the future aspirations of the children in their care.
We will be asking the children what they hope they will do or be in the future - and will use their ideas to plan some relevant activities to build on their interests. We would also like to ask parents about what they hope that their child will achieve over the coming year. Is there anything you would like our support with? Maybe help for your child to learn something new like cooking or mastering roller skates or riding a bike.
Not only could it help your child to grow in confidence but it is also a good way to work with the parents of our minded children, and get some inspiration for the year ahead.
