ok here goes, I'm a registered childminder, I'm due a child to start with me this tues... I have no contracts as I've only just sent my NCMA membership off etc... can anyone email me a rough idea of a contract so I can get them to sign it, just to cover us until the proper contracts start? I have no idea what I need to say on it, thanks,

Are you going to use NCMA contracts?

If so do you want me to post you one & you can return it when you get your pack through?

Bank holidays
Late payment
Notice for holidays
what you will provide
what thet need to bring

in your standards there are legal requirements of info you need (child record sheet)

plus who collects, who to contact in an emergency

It would be better if you had the contract as then you are protected in a dispute

I can't get an official one by tomoro, so need to make up a temp one

That might work in your favour because if you have a temp contract for a month, you then have an excuse to reexamine everything after that period.

Hi, your support minder should be able to loan you some NCMA ones, I gave my supported minder my spare kit until hers arrived. I know you are in Watford/Garston, so your support minder will have one.

It will have everything you need in it.

Also, I ordered some contracts and a new medication/accident file from NCMA and they arrived in three days. ( last week)

lottiesmummy · 27/08/2006 13:24

I waited till now as I get my 1st years insurance free with them and ncma membership free for 1st yr too... as it took me 8mths to get work I'd have wasted 3/4 of year, then it all happened so fast lol

thanks for the advice xxx
