Hi everyone have just posted a thread in nurseries was wondering if you could have a look for me and give me any advice you may have. here it is! I am probably being really silly even thinking about it but I am not sure how much longer I can go on for as a cm tbh.
I have recently looked into opening a nursery with a friend of mine but have bottled it so to speak, but only because of the current economic crisis and the costs involved. However, if it is set up and running I would definitely look into it if I were you!
I would need to be really clear in my mind why the current owners are giving it up. Check it's not because they can't fill their places or anything.
Sounds like a great oportunity. Why don't you call someone at your local Early Years (or equivalent) for a chat about what you would need to do?
Good luck with it.
(sorry if I'm butting in - don't know whether or not I'm allowed in the staff room!)
Of course you are allowed in. Thank you for the advice the current owners are giving up due to family committments and retirement the spaces are all full most days and it has a really good reputation will give Early years a call and see what they say.
Sammy - I am newly registered but since my DS1 has just started reception and I am now more aware of things I am quite surprised at the amount of mothers who seem to look after various other children. I am pretty sure that there is one other childminder collecting from the school (as it is obvious) but no others. One of the mum's in his class has a different child I would say three days out of five. More fool the parents I say.
It is annoying that you go through all the proper channels and try and do a professional job when some people seem to get away without bothering.
I spent the morning while I was quiet sorting out through all the paperwork I have received during the process of registration. It took about an hour (I binned some of it). Just as I finished the post arrived and I had a three inch wedge of stuff from the Council.......my house has turned into what looks like an explosion in a paper factory and I only have one mindee one and a half days so far....
hi all, I've got an hour off from everyone! one mindee on hols now for 2 weeks, one not in today an dd at school now, but do have new baby mindee coming for an hour later, start of settling in! quite looking forwards to the cuddles but think mum will struggle, bless her.
