Childminding in Britain
Owen, Sue
Young Children, v62 n6 p28-30 Nov 2007
In the journal section Improving the Lives of Children: Three Programs from around the World, this article about childminding-known as family child care in the U.S.-discusses advances in the training and professionalism of home-based child care providers in Britain. The author explains childminding networks, and looks at the contributions of Children Come First (CCF), a network model developed by the National Childminding Association. Planning professional development around accessibility, funding, relevance, planning, and peer support has transformed the quality of care for young children.
