I am a child minder and I am thinking of registering my DH as my assistant, mainly to allow him to do school drop offs and pick ups occasionally.

Has anyone else done anything similar? Any thoughts or advice would be appreciated. Also wondered if it was an expensive or time consuming business!

I have my DH as my assistant. He helps me out with the drop/pick ups. I then get time to concerntrate with the younger ones. he does this voluntary. I informed all the parents and they signed forms to say he can do the school runs and even look after children for a few hours in case of an emergency. I think its wonderfull and stress free especially for me. I wd say go for it and inform Ofsted as well and they will send u a new certificate. no hassles at all.

I missed the last bit of your ?. This is one of the rewarding business yu can do whilst you are looking after your own children if you have any. I am getting more than what I used to get when I was workin and at that time all my salary was goin to childcare. all the best.
