Kent Pre-Registration Course - Childminder

Event code EYC 20/244 
Event description This is a bespoke course written specifically for individuals wishing to become an Ofsted registered childminder in Kent. It is a comprehensive package that, together with separate paediatric first aid training, covers all aspects of setting up and running a successful childminding business.

The course comprises a mixture of eLearning modules, live zoom session and recorded webinars. Each delegate will also be assigned a tutor who will provide support through a one to one discussion affording the opportunity to ask questions on what has been covered in the course.

In more detail, the topics covered are as follows:
eLearning Modules
Introduction to the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) for prospective Childminders
• This introduces you to the EYFS in an easy to follow format, familiarising you with the statutory requirements in bitesize sections.

Safeguarding for Childminders
• Comprehensive information on safeguarding children, including Kent’s procedures for reporting. This is a stand-alone module, which can also be purchased separately by early years and childcare providers. No further training will be provided for this subject, however there is the opportunity to ask any questions during your one to one discussion.

Special Educational Needs/Disability (SEND)
• Explores the duties placed on you as an early years provider and introduces Kent’s unique Best Practice Guidance document.
