For National Childminding Week this year, we had two lovely story times for childminders and kids in KidZone in Wicklow Town and Junglemania in Kilcoole.
We cannot say a big enough thank you to Joanna from Bridge Street Books , who came along and read Giraffes Can’t Dance for us all.
Here it is on YouTube if you want to read it again!
Some other great books too, like Hugless Douglas, The Cow that Laid an Egg (also on YouTube!!)
not to mention the popular request – The Gruffalo!
Then Joanna gave all the children a lovely little puzzle book about Gerald the Giraffe, AND she gave the childminders a discount voucher! After which there was of course a nice cuppa for every childminder and a chance for the kids to get back to play too!
It was a great network morning for all. Childminder Mentors met their new Mentees, tips were discussed and passed on, and some parents even got involved looking for a childminder! Many thanks to all who came along.
