Hello I'm new to this site and hoping you might be able to help me out of a small crisis. I'm looking for part time care for my 9 month old daughter next January and wonder if anyone can recommend a childminder in the Leytonstone/Woodford area? The problem is I've left this til the last minute as, being a freelance journalist, I hoped to combine working from home and looking after my little one. In reality this isn't going to work. I've also left it too late to get her into a nursery. Because of the nature of my job, I may need extra days/hours of care. Is it going to be a big ask to expect this level of flexibility? What's the etiquette ? Please can anyone give me any tips, I'm in a bit of a pickle. Thanks!
No personal recommendations I'm afraid as we're not long moved to the area ourselves. Have you tried asking in one of the children's centres? I see a couple of really lovely cm's in our local one (Barclay road) and apparently the staff there can help with finding childcare.
Hello, I am a Childminder in South Woodford.......most childminders only work 8am-6pm Monday-Friday but you sometimes find exceptions (childminders offering overnight care, weekends, etc) but you would usually pay a premium for that (usually double time/time and a half if you're lucky!) Usually you sign a contract for a certain set of days each week and that's it.....although you may be lucky and find a Childminder who has vacancies so may be able to offer you additional days at certain times, but it wouldn't be guaranteed.
