Hi there Im booked onto the ICP course from the 16th May, one of the mums at the school has been asked if she knows of anyone who will look after her children (one 6 months old, one school age) Its very convenient as she litrally lives at the back of me.

Do you think I would be able to start in June/July?

you can start minding before doing ICP but you have to have completed by 6 months of minding! Same with first aid.

You have to be registered before you can start to child-mind, as said ICP can be done within 6 months, have you put any of your paperwork into Ofsted yet, it should take 12 weeks from when Ofsted receive them, here it can take anything upto to 6 months!!!

They said they want part one and part two in together and that we wouldnt be able to do part two without the icp course, its all ready to go in though. Should I attempt to do part two on my own and get it in asap?
