Thanks for your replies! I am so sorry to hear that you are also quiet, Timeforachange and Bellybuttons. Reassuring to hear that some people at least are busy, Booh,
I am registered on childcare and netmums and I have called the council to update my info there. Part of the problem is that I am studying part time so that reduces my availability. Hopefuly something will come along soon.
Timefor, are you going to perservere for the time being or look at doing something else? I have considered looking at preschool morning sessions even on a voluntary basis but am not 100% decided on that yet.
Really Booh? How far from Horsham? Any parents you know that work in Horsham so could use a Horsham minder?!
There are far too many minders here at the moment and a lot are looking for work! It makes what work there is very hard to come by! Last year I had so much work I has to have variations and everything - how things have changed
alliwant I am really thinking of giving up childminding and go for a nursery or reception class. I am on a waiting list with parenta to do my level 3 course. I am registered on childcare.co.uk and netmums, and also FIS have updated my details.

Hi Bellybuttons, I'm also in Horsham & I agree it is quiet at the moment. I have just partly filled a space with a part timer due to start next week & was asked this morning (when doing an extra drop off at playgroup) about another one, so hopefully will be full again. I am full to the brim with 5-8 yr olds & have had to turn work away from that age range!
