Right - given up childminding and got new job great! Now major trouble. Rang everyone on the childminding list from CIS and not one of them does my sons school. Major stressing as I wont be able to take the job.
Im looking for 8-9am for son and drop off and 8-1.30 mon-fri for my daughter 17nths.
How does a nanny work? Are they loads more expensive? ANY IDEAS=im desperate as I really want this job!
All help/advise ideas really needed xx

you can only claim the childcare element for a nanny if she's part of the childcare approval scheme or has joined the ofsted voluntary childcare register (which will soon replace the approval scheme): details here
have you looked at nurseries? they can sometimes pick up and drop off from local schools. hope you get something sorted!

It was me looking for a childminder have spent hours on the phone with no luck.
I can't justify a nanny as it is only for an hour before school as she she is quite happy at after school club. We have also looked into an aupair as I need some help around the house but we don't really have the room.
The thing that worries me about gumtree is they could be anyone and you are trusting them with your child.
