Evening all,

I am thinking about registering for overnight care (for the little lad that I mind on shifts, if the mum needs extra cover - I currently don't have him overnight), and even though I have looked at the ofsted website I can't find what I'd need in place or what I need to do to get it added by ofsted??

Many Thanks in advance, tulip xx

Thank you ladies,

I'll have to think some more about it. My main concern would be the ladders on my son's high beds, and as my 1 year old has been at A&E today cos he fell off of his brothers bed - I am going to think long and hard about this hmm.

Thanks again, tulip

Oh poor 1 yr old Having said that, I can't see that affecting you being registered for overnight care? My ds1 has a mid-sleeper with ladder but overnight mindees have a seperate room of their own (think they have to?!) and so far, I've only looked after babies/toddlers who've been in cots.

Hope your lo is ok.
