Just come on this bit of the board for the 1st time so I thought Id post.
Im female, 24, I live in Leeds, West Yorkshire and I have alot of experience in childcare. I dont have any qualifications but have looked after a family of 4 as if I was a nanny and I have cared for newborns and children up to age of 10 alot.
If anyone needs any childcare and would rather someone with lots of experience than paperwork then you can contact me.
I have a 3 bedroom town house with lots of space and gardens to front and rear so I can care for your child in either your home or mine. Obviously I would like you to come and see the house and get to know you before I care for your child. Im friendly and easy to get on with. To me money is not the most important part of a job. Ive had well paid jobs in the past and not enjoyed them so Id like to do something that will make me happy.
Let me know if you could use me.
Ive heard of a CRB check and Im not sure what it is but would be willing to look into getting one if you wish.
Im in LS12 area. I would get registered if I was guaranteed the work. Im not sure if thats possible though unless someone wants to say to me they will have me care for their child as long as Im registered.
I totally understand no one would use an unregistered childminder.
Im not too sure though where LS27 is. Is it Farsley? Do you think if I become registered I will get work. Is there a need for it in our area because if there are too many registered childminders akready and not enough work it will be a waste of time getting registered.
Sofrsogood, I would be wary about asking the childrens information service about the need for mindres in your area (Childrens information Service deal with this rather than the council).
I'm only saying this because in our area they are busy telling potential minders that there is plenty of work when there clearly isn't. The best thing to do imo is to ask for an upto date list of minders, give them a ring to see if they have vacancies.
I hope this ahsn't put you off, but it's better to find out before than afterwards.
when i was thinking of becoming a childminder i got a list from cis and rang around all the childminders asking what there rates were and if they had vacancies, then i decided from that if i should do it.
