View Full Version : Does anyone work with NCMA?

I'm looking for some help from anyone who has anything to do with NCMA!

I need some published research for my MEd - anything to do with increases/decreases in childminders, reasons why more childminders are needed, reasons why childminders have left minding, parent partnerships, minders being seen as professionals

My tutor says it would be good to have research from NCMA but I just don't know where to start!

Please please can someone point me in the right direction!

Not got time to look at moment Butterfly but try the Ofsted annual reports and NCMA annual report as both mention when decline or increase in cm numbers

Look for local authority plans - as they will say if recruiting and why

If I can be of any help - just ask - worked for LA 3 years part time and then 4 years full time - and for NCMA 3 years part time. Will come back to this post later on.

Just remembered there are a couple of studies as well - I think ncb did one not so long ago
