Teignmouth and District Childminders

Childminders Coffee Mornings/Social Gatherings

These were open to all childminders in the Teignmouth & District Area. They were very informal where the children got to interact with other children cared for by childminders and childminders got the chance to discuss any current issues with other professionals.

Every childminder had something different to offer to the children so by attending the informal coffee mornings, the children in your care would be able to experience something unique.

We had been holding our meetings at The Cabin, Happy Days Nursery, Broadmeadow for quite a while, but sadly this was no longer available through Dawlish & Teignmouth Children's centre. However all was not lost as we were offered to use the facilities at Teignmouth Day Hospital, Mill Lane. Sadly this also became unavailabe so now we are in the process of looking for somewhere else to hold our meetings. In the meantime, should you have any childminding issues we are only at the end of the phone so please do not hesiate to contact us.

The areas Teignmouth & District Childminders cover are: Teignmouth, Holcombe, Ashcombe. Dawlish, Shaldon, Stokenteignhead, Combenteignhead & Bishopsteignton. This is mainly due the space available at our drop-ins and support available. However, depending on availability, we are more than welcome to open this up to a wider area should anyone be interested. Please email us for details using the link on the contacts page.

Tshirts are currently available in sizes small and medium, so should anyone need a TShirt please call Nicky or Paul Burgess.

Teignmouth & District Childminders have been promoting Childminding in the local area for a number of years now. Our aim was to ensure that childminders received the recognition that they deserved and to make parents and other professionals aware that childminders are fully qualified professionals and not just babysitters that sat children in front of the TV, whilst doing their housework. Our aim was to also ensure all childminders received help and support when needed, particularly with paperwork and their impending Ofsted inspection. We will continue to support each other and to raise the profile even higher. In our short time of promoting childminding we have received over twenty nine thousand visitors to this site.

We have designed T.Shirts and Fleeces with the Teignmouth & District logo which are available for childminders to buy.

It is always great to hear of new childminders setting up in the area, so please feel free to drop by for a chat. Also if you would like your details added to the site please use the link on the following page, providing your name, address and phone number and the schools you will be collecting from - it is free and the more advertising you get the better.

On a sad note, there are more and more childminders giving up because of schools opening for longer hours and opening their own nurseries.
Just remember we are unique and can offer a more personal service. x x
