iChild Gold Membership "Gold resources & features:

Signs & Posters section

We have developed the signs and posters that many childminders asked for, in both colour and black and white. You can also create a simple logo to personalise the sign with your name or a child's name, or upload your current logo if you you have one. View the Signs & Posters section here.

Religious Festival Stories

Another popular request was to expand our religious festival resources to allow you to teach different festivals to young children.
Our religious activities have been written by Pat Alden, a religious teacher for over 35 years, and an ordained priest.
Each story is set out as a ‘picture board’ so the story can be told in the simplest way, whilst keeping the attention of the child. Each story has supporting activity ideas and many festivals have supporting resources. View the Religious Festival section here. 


iChild Calendar


You can use this useful tool to plan your teaching activities for the week or month ahead with the new iChild Calendar! We feature many events, festivals and occasions each month on iChild. Simply click on a listed event to access the corresponding activities, worksheets and resources. As an iChild Gold Member you are able to access all resources from the Calendar. View the iChild Calendar here.

 Photo Flashcards

You can also access a Photo Flashcard section where you can download photographic flashcards, with or without personalisation.
There are many different uses for these including games such as Snap or Matching Pairs. Alternatively you could print one sheet out as it is, without personalising, and the children can write what the images are. View the Photo Flashcard section here


Photo Posters section


Many childminders also wanted the ability to use high quality photography to create your own personalised signs and posters.
We have therefore created a Photo Poster section for Gold Members. You can write a heading above the photo and a text description under the image, on each poster, before printing them out. You can even customise these with your name or logo before you download them.

These are also great for creating themed invitations! View the new Photo Poster Section here.
