Childminding Ireland offers training and practical information sessions for childminders as well as pointing childminders in the right direction for more specific training courses.
A great starting point for childminders is to complete a Pediatric First Aid Training Course. This gives childminders confidence to administer basic first aid to children in your care. We think this is an important skill to have so we have made having an up to date certificate a requirement for membership.
Childminding Ireland also runs Manual Handling courses. In addition we point childminders to other relevant courses.
We run practical information sessions online in the evenings and we cover topics ranging from children’s nutrition to dealing with childhood emotions. Keep an eye out in the events section of our website for forthcoming webinars which you may find useful.
