NICMA - 'Tiny Toes' Drop In
Check what registered childminders think about our Drop In sessions:
“Fantastic benefit to us childminders. We can ask Tina and other childminders for advice if needed. The children can play with other kids and a different variety of toys”
"I love getting to socialise and help and support from the other childminders as it can be an isolating job. The children also love going and seeing their friends again and having a different setting to explore.”
