SCMA Annual Conference 2017
Scottish Childminding AssociationThis badge is awarded to Childminders who have attended the SCMA Annual Conference 2017 and can demonstrate how they will use what they have learnt at the conference to further develop and improve their practice. A childminder has a responsibility to promote and demonstrate a high level of professionalism when carrying out their work with children and families. Developing an understanding of this role in supporting learning and development and the mind of a child is crucial to achieving the best start in life for every child. The close relationship between a childminder and their minded child is one of the best ways to nourish their growing brain. When a childminder plays, sings, reads or tells a story and nurtures with healthy food, love and affection then the brain will grow.
