Childminder's Club:Why do I bother?

I'm not having a very good day/week

After loosing a big contract - I was ringing round to get extra work. I rang BUPA who couldn't help

Ran Social Services to ask if I could do emergency or respite care (thinking children with additional needs)

But they don't think I'd be any use as I don't work weekends

Do you know any other local minders who might have parents looking for cover when their childminder is on holiday? (Did that make sense??)

Hmm maybe

I'm more annoyed that with all the SN courses I've been on - I can't help unless I do weekends

I've had SN placements from SS and they've never asked for weekends!

Have you tried surestart?
Also agree about seeing if other minders need cover for their holidays, we as a group help to cover each other.

Would have thought that weekends made little difference in the school holidays from a repiste point of view. Madness.
