Happy National Childminders Day, Everyone!

National Childminders Day Logo

We think childminders are fabulous and deserve to have a special day to celebrate everything that they do. We also want to help promote childminding as a profession, show the world how fabulous childminders are and what it is that childminders actually do!

Therefore we have launched our first ever ‘Kids To Go National Childminders Day’ today, May the 12th 2022. We are giving away some free resources to help you celebrate and have had a competition for one lucky winner to receive a bundle of Kids To Go products worth over £240!

Entry for the 2022 Kids To Go National Childminders Day competition is now closed. Well done to our lucky winner!

How do I join in?

You can celebrate in whichever way suits you best. You may make a big celebratory day of it or just share some posts on Facebook, it is up to you.

We would love for as many childminders as possible to join in so we are giving away some free resources to help you celebrate. They include:

  1. Specially designed ‘Childminder Recipe’ colouring sheets for the children and you to make a childminder.
  2. Special decorations to print out and use on the day.
  3. Brand new recipe for the children to make and give to you!
  4. Poster to advertise that you are joining in.

Scroll to the bottom of this page to download your free resources.

What else can I do?

Watch out on our Facebook Page, Kids To Go, where we are sharing daily ‘Childminding Facts’ images which you can share on your own page to promote how brilliant childminders are.

Why not get together with friends to celebrate with a little party.

Spread the world about ‘National Childminders Day.’ The more people that join in the bigger an impact it will have.
