Manual Handling for Childminders


We are delighted to advise you that we are now offering a Manual Handling for Childminders Course.  This is a 2 hour course which is run online.

The cost for Childminding Ireland members is €25 and for non-members €30.


A Certificate of attendance will be issued upon completion.

This training course is ideal for professionals working with children.


It will equip you with the knowledge and skills to lift children in a safe way.  You will also be able to carry out a manual risk assessment on completion of the course.

The practical demonstration by the instructor will include lifting children correctly, e.g. into/out of a highchair, buggy and cot as well as inanimate objects, e.g. boxes and crates. Participants will be invited to have a doll or teddy and a box to hand so they can practice along.
