Paddock Wood Childminding Association was formed in 2004, when it was felt that local childminders should join together to provide a support network for each other, and in turn, be able to offer a better service to parents and children. We meet weekly to provide a toddler session for all childminded children, often involving messy play, as well as singing and stories.
We have strong links with the Children’s Centre in Paddock Wood, as well as Paddock Wood Primary School, and Scalliwags Pre-school.
Every Ofsted registered childminder will have completed an initial training course, will hold a paediatric first aid certificate, and have done safeguarding training. The childminder and every member of their family over the age of 16 will hold an enhanced CRB check.
If you are looking for childcare, the Childminder Profiles will tell you a little about each member of PWCMA, and give you their contact details. The Parents Pages will give you lots of information about choosing a childminder, and the many benefits a childminder will offer you.
