    Anybody a registered childminder?

    Banned
    I'm thinking of becoming a registered childminder because i am always looking after children.

    Anybody a registered childminder on here or any advice on becoming one?

    You should ask your local opportunities centre. The one near me gave me all the information i needed to start. or your local council should be able to help with info

    yes i was-i did a course first and i got starter books free and insurance for the first year. I did it for 2 years and didnt anticipate the annual inspection being so rigorous! I have had five kids myself and had a toddler at home so I was safety conscious-but the inspector picked up lots of things and I even had to get details of plants in my garden! I appreciate the safety issues but they are OTT.
    If you mind in the child's home you dont need to register as far as I am aware.

    I love children, only good ones though.

    When they are bad, my fella can deal with them.

    I will only be looking after my neighbour's children, they are very good.

    Paul is with us today, he is disabled and lovely.

    He is never a problem, we took him to Chester Zoo yesterday.

    My other half does work but he is 6ft 6inches, so if i say that i am gonna speak to him about their behaviour, they usually go quiet.

    Well if you think using fear and intimidation to make children behave is the way forward then i hope they don't give you permission to childmind. :?

    This is deffo a wind up, it seems you are unsure whether you have the ability to cope if things go wrong , my advice keep the disabled kid away from you for his safety only

    Maybe if there was more fear of the police, parents etc...

    There would be less problems in society.

    I know not to cross my father.

    Why would i not be serious, i looked after another neighbour's son Christopher, he is 4 now.

    I looked after him when he was 3 last year, for the six week holidays.

    He was fine and loves my home, me and my fella.

    He goes to a childminder who is fat, ugly, gives him paste on his sandwiches and takes him nowhere.

    He is better off at mine, where he is well fed, loved and entertained.

    I think tthis is more of a ' I'm back' thread... I've missed a few words out...

    Best of luck to you if your serious..

    Your not serious are you??????????? are you??

    I thinks your sat at home giggling at this..

    Does it really matter if his childminder is 'fat, ugly and gives him paste on his sandwiches? His parents obviously think it's okay, if they send him to them :?

    Fat, ugly & Paste = BAD, BAD Childminder

    Threats of intimidation = Goooooood Childminder

    She is the only one in the area that is registered because my neighbour has to use a registered childminder to get the money back from the government.

    It must be a real strain for you being a gorgeous, perfectly manicured, slim childminder of the year.
    I applaud your abilities.







    Not really. :-D

    Of course it matters, i would not have my children minded by an elephant.

    What if they run off, will she be able to reach them without having an heart attack?
