I am doing a Masters in Professional Studies in Early Years Educatio and part of my last assignment for my first year, I am looking at the professionalisation of childminding and whether it is something that CMs want or not. I was hoping that there would be a few CMs willing to complete a shortish questionnaire for me please?

Hi, I 'm currently registering. Think all the paper work Is far too much for childminders to be expected to do. Will help too if I can. Be interesting to see the results you find.

If you still need people, I'd be happy to help if you think I can.

I'm currently going through the registration process, but I've been a registered chldminder before, several years ago - before Ofsted became involved.
