Calling all budding young artists!
The Childminding Ireland Children’s Art Competition is back again this year to celebrate and nurture the talents of the children you look after. It was a great success over the last three years and the artwork really brightened up our offices. We are really looking forward to receiving this year’s creations – even if it will be in digital format!
We have fantastic prizes on offer for the winners – see below.
