The Childminding Cafe

  Welcome to the childminding cafe

The Childminding Cafe is a new site created by a former Ofsted registered and Outstanding graded childminder. The Childminding Cafe offers childminders access to resources, coaching and business inspiration.
This members-focused website is designed for you, so that you can gain tools and coaching to make your childminding business more successful.
By becoming a member of The Childminding Cafe you can access over 150 electronic resources, read regular blogs and newsletters including vital updates to new EYFS regulations, ask questions and gain answers from Amanda and other members on the Coaching Q&A board. We can’t however offer legal advice or support.
 Membership lasts for a year and in this time you can download all the resources for your own personal use at any time.
Amanda, originally began “the Childminding Cafe” in 2012, Amanda has been helping the childcare sector to run their businesses since 2008 with over 1,400 childminders having purchased The Complete EYFS Childminding Portfolio, a disk containing over 6o electronic resources. Additionally EYFS related training portfolios developed by Amanda have been purchased by local authorities to train local childminders.

In November 2015, Donna took over “the Childminding Cafe” business.  Donna continues to provide resources of information to childminders and build a portfolio of members who can contact “the Childminding Cafe” for any advice and support that may help grow businesses.

To make the resources available to the wider childminding community, this site has been created. It contains all the resources available in the portfolio plus regularly produced new resources, including a whole suite of resources for EYFS 2014 and updated regulations thereafter.
Whether or not you become a member, please take a look at the site terms & conditions and the privacy policy before using any of the resources.
