A NEW child minder support group has launched in Chard this month.

The group is run by Action for Children at Chard Children’s Centre, Clare House, and takes place every two weeks on a Wednesday morning.

Local child minders and the children they look after are given the chance to meet up with each other in a child friendly environment and activities are provided by Children’s Centre Workers.

There is a selection of toys and other activities available and the children are provided with a healthy snack.

If anyone is interested in becoming a child minder or would like details of child minders in the Chard area they can contact the Children’s Centre on 01460-65762.
