Hi as well as being a cm I also run and event creche for weddings and corporate events. We have lots of bookings coming up and of course stick to OFSTED ratios. We have bookings all around the country if any of you childminders or nannies out there might be interested in earning a bit of extra cash on a weekend please visit my website here
for a bit more information about what I do. Even if you are not interested in any extra work would really appreciate you all having a look and letting me know what you think thanks

i think thats a great idea!


fifilou · 17/05/2007 14:30

great idea!

wish I'd known about it when i had my wedding in 2005 and a zillion billion kids came!

I hired a magician (who was a bit weird and 'crap' as my nephew said) and two nursery nurses that just sat and bit their nails all day. I actually ended up going over in my wedding frock and saying.....look, there are lots of toys and games over there can you doooooooooooooooo something!

They eventually went into childcare mode and were quite good.

I paid them tenner an hour each too! I'd drank lots of champagne.


good luck! looks great.

Fantastic idea - I would be interested too!


gooseegg · 17/05/2007 15:54

You have got a really clear and attractive website. Good luck!
I cared for a beautiful little girl at a wedding recently for a mumsnetter and her husband who got married locally.
They gave me my own room in their hotel for two nights with their daughter.
It was definately something I would love to do again, although my availability is quite limited due to shift work and weekend childminding.
I'm in Devon, so if you get any bookings for similar down this way please don't hesitate to give me a call

This is a great idea, I had a bad experience last year where I'd booked childcare through Hilton Hotels so I could go to a posh gay wedding in Bristol. Got to the hotel, no sign of CM, franctic phonecalls result no CM (they tried to ring me to advise of cancellation, yeah right, no call received my end grump grump) so we had to take the boys who were amazingly well behaved phew but spent weeks chasing up the refund . Glad to know someone is filling this gap, there is a definate need. I am in Gloucestershire , a bit far from you I think


ajj · 17/05/2007 18:19

Great Idea.
Website looks good.
I would be up for some extra work, can always do with some extra money:0
(I'm in Norfolk)


OFSTEDoutstanding · 17/05/2007 18:52

Excellent ajj will definitely keep you in mind. Gloucestershire is a bit far but if people are willing to pay petrol we are willing to travel!
