Community childminding scheme

A community childminder must be registered with the CIW.

You will offer an additional service to that of a childminder.  It involves being part of the Community Childminding scheme funded by Swansea Social Services for children under 8 years. Community Child Care is part of the wider Family Support services offered by SSD which work to support families experiencing serious stress and/or potential breakdown.  A Community Childminder is able to care for the most vulnerable children including children with disabilities, behavioural difficulties and children on the child protection register.  The service also supports families of those children at risk of being accommodated due to family breakdown, disability or illness.  Childminders may be expected to offer support, advice and guidance to parents to encourage the development of their parenting skills.
