What about Niks @(and the first half of your postcode)

What about a favourite animal with Nik's above or below it.

Would you have matching stationary? House sign? tee shirts for you to wear?

Is there anything distinctive about your house or garden or road?

im stuck on this one too..i was all set for Sweetpea's childminding..but then i thought people may think sweetpea from popye would be doing the caring??..then little ones at Lxxxx, my area?..or New Beginnings...but im not settled on any..ill have some ideas if youve got them

If you intend to promote yourself via the internet, I suggest adding to your chosen name:

Twinkle Toes Childcare

includes the 'keyword' childcare, which could help when parents search the internet. According to search engine stats, Child Care gets more searches than Childcare, so even consider spliting the word, or having as Child-Care.

evesmama, sweetpeas is a lovely name.i didnt associate it with popeye till you mentioned it!! i say go 4 it,its lovely and original.

i have already drew up my leaflets and they look cute with that name on..i was going to have it as sweetpea's childminding, but if i put child minding (as space) would i still get people looking for a childminder???


smeeinit · 24/08/2006 09:55

hmmmm...have you tried doing a search on net for child minding and see what it comes up with?
