16/04/2018: New on-line Training Course for Childminders - a pilot scheme

Child in Mind

Background:

Early Childhood Ireland is seeking participants to pilot and evaluate an open online training course developed for Childminders. For the past year, Early Childhood Ireland has been involved in a European project with four other partners from Greece, Italy, Slovakia and Spain, called Child in Mind. The overall goal is to address the gap in the availability of educational resources for Childminders. In addressing this gap, the aim is to create a flexible pathway to learning for Childminders, having a positive impact on the quality of care provided to young children (0-6) in the home.
