Dear Graham Jones,
You may recall we contacted you at the end of last year to introduce ourselves to you.
We are the United Kingdom Child Minders Association (UKCMA), the association offering support exclusively to childminders.
We promised we would keep you updated with our progress, and we are delighted to inform you we went live with our members' area yesterday. We hope to be working for and with your constituents in the very near future.
As you are aware the childcare sector is undergoing a lot of changes currently, and the future for many childminders has been quite worrying. We urge you to get on board with us and start supporting the childminders of the UK.
We will be contacting you in the weeks and months ahead with the feedback provided from our members, about where they would like to see their profession directed. We urge you to listen to this feedback from both your constituents and their chosen association, to support the 67,000 childminders in the UK.
Thank you and please feel free to contact us with feedback.
Best wishes, the UKCMA team.
