Hey everyone, if anyone has a spare 30 5 mins could I get some feedback on my site please? I think it's too long and talky? What do you reckon?

Any feedback great fully received thanks! x

Love it - only criticism is that you have no title on your front page. Your name & "Nanny" would do - just a bit odd not to have a title.

When you say first degree do you mean the grade or the fact you've done more than on degree? If it's the former it should read "first class degree" .

On the Who am I page the timescale is not very clear - you talk about your degree, then other jobs, then say you have 7 years experience in childcare and you're only 24 - to me it sounds a bit like you got your degree at 16 then worked for a while before taking up childcare at 17. Maybe you could be a bit clearer on that.

Love the graphicssmile

'I provide both ad hoc childcare and emergency childcare cover, either in your own home or mine'

Just wondering, if you are a nanny and a childminders ASSISTANT, how you can provide care in your home?

I think the website is pretty good. It is a bit wordy, but what you say is (pretty much) all relevant and not hard to read.

I am a bit confused by this. It is not clear to me whether you are available full time care or not. I would state that very clearly if you are not.

I feel there is a lack of information about where you are located, are covered.
On the home page, the only mention of area is in the TITLE tag.

Ok right sorry for delay been in work all day and then went to see Mamma Mia grin

lou031205 I don't really know what you mean? Sorry I am being dense as am really tired!

Brangelina (love ya name!) I've done 2 degrees but yup I mean first class honours degree; I think this is a regional thing? In Wales we say first degree look here and here for an example. But seems as how I am in England now it's a very good point and I will change it - thanks!

The time scale thing is very tricky to explain via type (although to date not had any parents who were confused - maybe because my CV is clearer?) but anyway the 7 years experience comes from "more informal of casual setting" ie. caring for family and friends children. I think I have looked at it too much and can't see a way to reword it to make it super obvious without changing the tone. Any advice would be muchly appreciated?

Graphics - I'm not convinced on ther banners that go across the top of the text boxes though? I like the ones on the home and experience page but not fussed on the rest? Having a hard time on finding suitable photos/images to be honest!

smeeinit thanks - sorry to steal your idea hope that's ok? I'm going to leave a comment on your thread either tonight or tomorrow. Thing yours is great too (and I like the butterflies personally).

botherednanny I don't know if there is something in the water down my way but a few families (4) in a row asked me if I had any facial piercings / obvious tattoos?!? So thought I would add it on. Also it seems to make other, less fussy (?) parents laugh! I also love that little monster - he is quite cute really!

southernbelle77 I am currently registering to be a childminder; but until that comes through I am caring (only happened twice to date 6 hours each time) for children using the The Childcare (Exemptions from Registration) Order 2008 specifically section 5(b). Where you basically get 14 days (in a year) to care for children in your own home. Have Childminders insurance (MM), food hygiene cert etc. Good to hear that although it's wordy it's not too hard to read.

bamboostalks I thought this too and so added a question on the question page. It's the first question on the page; does that not make it clearer?

nannynick very good point - but the reason is because I don't want to confine myself to certain areas. Like for example, if I say I only cover, X, Y, Z and a person might live just past Z and they might not get in contact with me thinking that they live too far out? Or am I just being stupid? I have had bookings for places about a 30 minute drive away which I'm fine to travel too so long as parent pays part of petrol (always discussed prior to turning up obviously) - if I list areas maybe I'd be doing myself out of business? What do you think? Sometimes I over think things and this could be a prime example! Another good booking I had was a wedding - I was basically asked to go to a wedding and keep 9 under 6's happy for a few hours (were 2 nannies in total) that was an hour drive away. But then I suppose I am not making very good use of google am I?! hmm

anyoneouthtere thanks very much!

Thanks for all the input everyone, I'm off to bed! [sleepy face] x
