Hello everyone ,
I am a reuglar poster but new to the childminding threads, i am waiting to receive my registration cert so i can start minding. I have a 6 year old waiting to start which is great but have no one i know to ask the basic questions, ( shona has been great and helped me with some of my polices)

Firstly - i know that as soon as i have my Cert NCMA will issue me my public liabilty insurance but will i have to wait for my contracts? and if i do what do i do with the girl waitig to start , do i make up one as best as i can until they send some??

Meal planners - How do you lay these out, not sure what is best to do with these.

Oh it seems so scary now its becoming real!!!

Im sure there will be lots more questions from me xx

Thank you all xxx

Hiya, you should have got a leaflet with a tearaway slip from ncma regarding thier insurance, i sent this off before i was reg with my reg number on(i dated the ins to start a month or two later, knowing i would be reg and working by then as i had someone lined up)
Meal planners ..i WILL draw up a menu, but for me at minute (only one mindee) i have all food in and ready to go so i ask what she would like..somedays she has full dinner, other days soup and a roll..i leave it up to her!

re the little girl who will be starting with you..get all her info ie: parents details, contact numbers, all health details-doctors name number address, etc etc..i have a form if you would like it emailed..the more info you have the better i find!.

good luck

You don't have to have a written contract when a mindee starts.
