All about our Childminding Service (NCS)

As a team we have collectively over 60 years experience working as childminders, over 10 years experience of managing the New Era Nursery, and have experience of Early Years Ofsted Inspecting.

In the past New Era also set up, and ran for 5 years, the Burnley and District Childminder Network which supported  childminders across Burnley and Pendle.

The team have a comprehensive suite of qualification between them which include,  Degree in Early Years, Information, Advice and Guidance Level, Children’s Care Learning and Development Level 4,  Adult Teaching Qualifications, Assessors Qualifications, SENCO, ECAT, ICAN and  Parentalk. The team undertake continuous professional development and over many years have attended many additional courses to further develop their knowledge and skills. The team also set up and for 5 years ran the Burnley and District childminder network which supported childminders to access Early Years Funding.

Drawing on this extensive experience, the NCS team can offer professional support to your childcare business. The NCS Network Meeting aims to refresh, network, inform, support and facilitate discussion of relevant topics (and burning issues) and also offers opportunity to catch up with other childminder colleagues, with of course tea, coffee and cakes.
