I know I really want to work with children, I'd love to work somewhere like gymboree or somewhere really fun like that, but the whole having no money kinda is in the way of getting a franchise
I know I could do a childcare qualification but it would be really expensive with childcare for ds (it would have to be during the day as dp is at Uni in the evenings and we wouldn't cope two of us doing evening study)
It's definately a good idea, I'll give them a call.
The class leader was definately a very good singer though (she had to sing to music like karaoke so she had to stay in tune!) also I don't think the ones here are oversubscribed, they don't have a lot of classes... will have to see!
Can you think of something that you had /have difficulty locating and see if there's a gap in the market to supply them?? iykwim.
or what about garden design, interior design, something you could do over the internet?
Sing and sign?
I second Skribbles idea. I started doing childrens parties as a clown just before Christmas. You only need to do the parties that suit you, for me thats at the week-end, and it's a great earner and fun to do.
Learn to juggle, and do a few magic tricks, facepaint and balloon model, there are books that teach you these skills, and away you go. It really IS easy to pick up. I just put posters up in local shops (within half an hours drive).
In fact, I just gave up the day job (in a pre-school), and I hope that this will be a success for me. Whatever you decide, good luck.
