Our Childminder Agency attends London expo
Our Childminding Agency, Leap Ahead, attended the Childcare Expo, in London on 3-4 March.
Barbara Morton, from Leap Ahead, reported:
“It was lovely to see some of our Leap Ahead childminders as well as other childcare providers from Richmond and Kingston at the Childcare Expo last weekend. We had a really busy time chatting to lots of interested people about Leap Ahead and also about childminder agencies in general. The aim was twofold: to raise general awareness of childminder agencies and also to promote the agency with the possibility of signing up new members.
“Lots of people we spoke to had very little knowledge of what childminding agencies are and how they work, so it was a good opportunity to dispel some myths and misconceptions. We have registered a number of new childminders since Christmas and still have a group awaiting their suitability checks so we are on track to meet our target of 50 childminders by the end of year two, and hopefully our numbers may be swelled by some of the interested childminders we met at the Expo.”
