Child­min­ders sing to show ben­e­fits of home care

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Uk&world Update -

CHIL­DREN will be pro­vid­ing a mu­si­cal treat for res­i­dents at a care home later this month.

Child­min­ders and chil­dren from Wis­bech Child­mind­ing Group will be hold­ing a mu­sic-themed event at Glen­field House Care Home, in Money Bank, Wis­bech on June 18.

Dur­ing the morn­ing, child­min­ders and their chil­dren will be re­gal­ing the res­i­dents of the care home with their songs as well as bring­ing along mu­si­cal in­stru­ments for them to join in if they want to.

And on June 16, a mu­sic work­shop will be held for child­min­ders at the Whit­tle­sey Chil­dren’s Cen­tre, in New Road, Whit­tle­sey.

The work­shop is be­ing held to help teach child­min­ders in the area the ben­e­fit that mu­si­cal ac­tiv­i­ties can have on the chil­dren they care for.

The event will run from 9.30am to 11.30am and is open to all child­min­ders in the area.

Ker­rie John­stone, child­mind­ing sup­port and devel­op­ment of­fi­cer with the Na­tional Child­mind­ing As­so­ci­a­tion, said: “We are look­ing for­ward to cel­e­brat­ing just one as­pect of what child­min­ders do to help chil­dren learn through play.

“The Wis­bech child­mind­ing group and the chil­dren meet next door to Glen­field House and they wanted to give the res­i­dents some­thing to en­joy.

“Of course Na­tional Child­mind­ing Week 2010 is themed around mu­sic so we will all be en­joy­ing a good old sing song.”

The mini-con­cert and mu­si­cal work­shop are be­ing held to pro­mote the im­por­tance of child­mind­ing and co­in­cides with Na­tional Child­min­ders’ Week, which runs from June 12 to June 19.
