More and more childminders are taking on assistants to work with them.
The assistant might help out with deliveries and collections of children so the childminder can cover 2 settings or the assistant might be around at a busy time of the week and contribute to the general running of the provision while playing games and supporting the children’s learning and development.
Assistants can be a real boost to a childminding provision, offering a second pair of eyes on outings and giving their input into planning, observation, risk assessments etc.
However, employing an assistant is not as simple a process as it might first appear and there are many areas which must be considered before an assistant starts working with you.
I have written this e-book from the point of view of the childminder who wants to employ an assistant and who wants to simplify the process as much as possible while ensuring s/he meets all the statutory and legal requirements.
I would like to thank Denise for her input and support in the initial stages of writing this e-book and for sharing paperwork with me.
The e-book is priced at £3.99 and is available from my www.knutsfordchildminding.co.uk website.
