Myself and my little ones have really loved having a group especially for childminders, as since the covid pandemic so many groups have now closed. Plus as a childminder it became very isolating, I have really enjoyed the time to meet and the children chance to socialise
Coalville Library Childminder Group
When we put the word out there to see if there would be interest for a Coalville Library Childminder Group, the answer was a resounding yes!
At the beginning of November 2022, we held our very first session. We have taken a stroll through the deep, dark wood with a mouse and a Gruffalo, danced a wild rumpus with Max and the Wild Things, taken a trip to the farm with Buster, and explored many more books!
The group are also supporting the development of one of the Story Explorer bags , which will be available to use for visitors of the library.
As a legacy of this project, there will also be group activity packs available for childminders and early-year professionals to make use of when they visit the library.
