Barnardos needs caregivers
Barnardos is looking for people to provide homebased care and education for children.
Team leader Jody Dodd-McGerty says more people are needed to sign up as KidStart caregivers.
Caregivers can provide care and education for up to four preschool children at home, in- cluding any children of their own.
A health check is done to make sure the environment is up to safety standards and the applicant has to do a medical check, police check and provide referees.
The house also needs a fenced outdoor play area.
Those who are suc- cessful complete a training course over two weeks and do a first aid course.
Once qualified, they are self-employed and contract to Barnardos for KidStart and are able to choose what days and what hours they work, says Ms Dodd-McGerty.
