This survey is open to all UK Mumsnet users who have at least one child who is currently in paid for childcare - including nannies/ nursery/ play group etc.

As a small token of thanks everyone who completes the survey will not only have our grateful thanks but also be entered into a prize draw where one MNer will win a selection of books from the shelf at Mumsnet Towers - approx value £50! - here's the link

Thanks and good luck

Done. I like the question about the party leaders and their child-rearing abilities Grin

forago · 23/05/2014 18:47

lol at the question about child minding. I think Nigel would consider that "woman's work"

CalamitouslyWrong · 23/05/2014 18:58

The child minding question is hilarious.

Done Grin

gallicgirl · 23/05/2014 22:45

That was unexpected.

MyGastIsFlabbered · 24/05/2014 12:29

Done, but I'd have liked the option of 'I'd trust Beelzebub first' on the trusting party leaders to look after your children option Grin

ItsMyFuckingWedding · 24/05/2014 15:20

Done Smile

My problem is that my DS needs a high quality, firm but nice childminders and I am struggling so badly in the area where I currently work to find and keep a decent childminder who wants to pick him up from school each day. It's really sad - he is a lovely boy, intelligent and chatty and they just say he is naughty and doesn't want to hold their hand.

Done. Nice questions Grin

Trooperslane · 25/05/2014 08:58

I'm with gastflabbered.

And my gast WAS truly flabbered at leaving my pfb with any of those fuckwits Wink

StealthPolarBear · 25/05/2014 10:29

Done :o
Can I just make absolutely sure - we use a CM 3 days a week and grandparents do the other two days - they offered, and the decision to accept wasn't purely financial (we appreciate the money they save us but would have paid for FT childcare otherwise). Does that count as "borrowing" from them?

dashoflime · 25/05/2014 11:44

If your going to include Scotland as an option on the region section- you need to include the SNP as one of the "main" parties.

I said I would trust David Cameron a little to mind my child. Ds likes being taken to pubs! Remembering to take him home from the pub is just a small detail that we could work on!

StealthPolarBear · 25/05/2014 11:47

lol dash :)

BankWadger · 26/05/2014 12:43

I've answered as the SAHM I currently am with only 1 child in part time care. But that's changing so ask me those first few questions again in a month or so once my kids have been in full time care/wrap around care and we'll see how much my answers have changed.

'Cept for the leaders question. No body that smarmy and distrustful gets to look after my children, so that won't change Grin

Goatbongosanonymous · 26/05/2014 20:33

I almost want to leave BabyGoat with those blokes. I know who would come out triumphant and it ain't them!

sherbetpips · 28/05/2014 07:11

Done but what a strange set of questions, a political questionnaire hidden in a childminding questionnaire.

gamescompendium · 28/05/2014 19:56

Do you think anyone in the country would trust Nigel Farage with their child?

Forgot about the 'leaving the child at the pub' situation, if my Mum hadn't told me that approximately half of her friends have forgotten a child at some point I'd be doing lots of hoiking of my judgy pants but I suspect with 3 DC it's just a matter of time before someone gets forgotten...

olympicsrock · 29/05/2014 16:11

Very odd political questionnaire.

ipswichwitch · 29/05/2014 17:30

Done. I wouldn't trust that lot to water my house plants never mind look after my DC!

ChineseFireball · 31/05/2014 00:48

Done. Bit odd, I agree!

springbabydays · 31/05/2014 06:44

The political thing is weird but trusting someone with your child is very different from trusting someone with your country. My dc's nursery workers are lovely but I wouldn't necessarily vote for them!
