Childminders – look after up to 10 children from 0 to 12 years old in their own home. They must be registered, inspected and regulated by CIW (Care Inspectorate Wales). They are based in the community, which means children can go to playgroups/cylchoedd meithrin and parent and toddler groups.  We provide training and support you from registration and throughout your childminding career. For further information please contact Avril Rees, Childminder Development and Training Officer on 01267 246554.

The whole Carmarthenshire team are an asset to us childminders and I know from speaking to other childminders in the UK that they do not have such a fantastic team behind them. I could not recommend this enough for anyone who would like to become a childminder in Carmarthenshire.
