Here at The Isle of Wight College we work with a number of employers, in a vast array of industries. A fantastic opportunity has arisen to work at Daisy’s Ducklings, an Outstanding home from home childminding setting, as a Childcare Apprentice.
This is an amazing opportunity to start a career in childcare, working for a fantastic Ofsted Registered Childminder in Binstead, Ryde.
Daisy’s Ducklings follow the EYFS as required by Ofsted and take pride in planning activities that children will enjoy. We mostly follow a child-led approach and introduce elements of Montessori, Hygge and The Curiosity Approach into our days. We believe in giving children a voice and enjoy many different outings and activities. We can often be found exploring a forest or having fun at the beach.
This is a fantastic opportunity to kick start a career within a caring and professional childcare setting and gain a relevant childcare qualification at the same time.
