Becoming a childcare provider
If you are thinking of starting work in the childcare sector,
such as becoming a childminder, setting up a day nursery, holiday
playscheme, breakfast or after school club then there has never
been a better time. It is a fast growing sector with an increasing
demand for staff.
Childcare is a job that people really love doing. They enjoy the
variety, fun and the satisfaction that comes from watching a child
progress and develop.
