Your Borough Of Poole

Your Chance To Take Up Childminding

If you are looking for a rewarding career working with children being a childminder could be the ideal job for you.

Good quality childminders are always in demand, and at the moment there is a shortage of childminders across Poole, particularly in the Hamworthy, Turlin Moor and Old Town areas, offering a unique opportunity for those starting up.

As a professional registered childminder you will love working with children and want to give them the best start in life and see them grow and develop.  You will be your own boss working from home and have the flexibility to decide your own working hours and how you plan your working day. Being a childminder also has the advantage of allowing you to look after your own children at the same time, if required.

Cllr Janet Walton, Cabinet Portfolio Holder for Children, Young People and Families, Borough of Poole, said: "Working with children can be so rewarding and becoming a childminder is ideal for people in need of flexibility in their working patterns. I would really encourage anyone who thinks this might be a career for them to come along to a briefing session to find out more."

If you live in Poole and think you may have the right skills to become a childminder, book on to a free Briefing Session and find out more.

The next Childminding Briefing Session is being held on 3 June, 10am – 12.30pm in the Welcome Area above Poole Central Library in The Dolphin Centre.

Donata Sobania-Byczkowska, a Poole Childminder, said: "I had many different jobs in my life but being a childminder is the most rewarding profession which makes me feel like I am doing something worthwhile with my life.

"If you think this is something you would love doing do not hesitate and start your childminding business now. You will be surprised how much support is available for you from the borough and how much joy this will bring to your life."
