New Era Childminder Services

New Era Childminder Services (NCS) aims to promote and support the continual development of high quality home based childcare through the provision of support, information, advice and guidance, education and training.

As a team we have collectively 60 years experience working as childminders, 10 years experience of managing the New Era Nursery, and have recent experience of Early Years Ofsted Inspecting. In the past New Era also set up, and for 5 years ran, the Burnley and District Childminder Network which supported  childminders across Burnley and Pendle.

Drawing on this extensive experience, the NCS team can offer professional support to your childcare business.

Childminders who join NCS are able to  access  telephone and email support and attend termly Network meetings to refresh, network, inform, support and facilitate discussion of relevant topics (and burning issues) and an opportunity to catch up with other childminder  colleagues, with of course tea, coffee and cakes. 

Sue, Elaine and Wendy  look forward to working with you in the future.
