Hi there, just a quickie please. I'm about to take on my first mindee job as a registered childminder - nothing particuarly taxing just a morning school run two days a week for sisters who are about to have a birthday (before I start the school run). Just thought Id like to send a birthday card - I'm quite friendly like that - but wondering whether it is prudent to send a small present - be it only, say, something like colouring pencils with their names on. What do you think?
