There is a shortage of childcare provision in most rural areas of Perth & Kinross and in some parts of Perth City. Childminders are the ideal type of service to fulfil demand, particularly to provide before and after school care for children attending smaller primary schools.
The Council’s Childcare Strategy Team organises childminder Pre-Registration Training courses for anyone who might be interested in becoming a childminder. Previous experience of working with children is not required.
For details of current courses or for information on childcare options in the local area, phone the Childcare and Family Information Service on 01738 472350 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org. Full details are also available on www.pkc.gov.uk/families or www.scottishfamilies.gov.uk
