Childminders in the Childminding Best Practice Club are dedicated to being the best childminder they can be.

To support this dedication members receive monthly ‘toolkits’ full of ideas, resources and planning, a welcome kit with a special certificate to display with pride and a 25% discount off other Kids to Go products, helping to support our members in every aspect of their childminding adventure.
