Become a childminder: District invites to information evening on 29 November

As the need for childminders is growing, the district of Waldeck-Frankenberg is again looking for interested persons who would like to be trained as childminders. An information event will be held on Tuesday, 29 November at 6 pm at Gasthof Vöhl in Frankenberg. Interested persons are cordially invited.

For people who enjoy working with children, can offer them a loving, appreciative and familiar atmosphere, take responsibility and are interested in pedagogical topics, working as a child day care worker is just the right thing. Together with the Kreisvolkshochschule, the district offers qualification as a child day care worker.

The basic qualification is divided into two parts - in the first part, the focus is on theory; in the second part, the knowledge learned in theory is deepened in practice. The qualification is free of charge. The next course starts in February 2023 and lasts about half a year. The course is run by the Waldeck-Frankenberg District Adult Education Centre. It comprises 300 teaching units, divided into a preparatory phase with 160 teaching units and an accompanying phase with 140 teaching units. In the first phase, all the skills necessary for working as a day care worker are taught. The second phase expands and deepens the existing competences.

For further information on the qualification as a child day care worker, please contact the Child Day Care Supervisor, Ms Monika Padberg-Koert, Tel. 06451-743-781, or email
