Note: Please bear in mind that this is a discussion board, not a place to advertise childcare vacancies or recruit childminders/nannies etc. We don't mind the odd mumsnet regular mentioning that they're looking for a job/mindee (although you're probably better off in MN Local) but repeated job "ads" and posts from nanny/babysitting agencies aren't fair to people who are paying for small business ads. Do feel free to report any you see. Thanks, MNHQ.

I agree and never said it was just for parents using c/ms...we maybe the first in line for changes but I feel every provider will be touched by the changes in future as will the parents and the topic is far from being discussed just in this forum.
The peole at the conference yesterday were not just c/ms but from every part of the sector, charities and childcare experts
