Hi, I am near the end of my registration - just waiting on my ofsted visit and needing to purchase insurance. I am going with MM but don't know whether I really need the 125 pound starter pack. I do have all of the forms already which I have put together over time e.g accident/incident/cause for concern etc but just wondered whether it is worth purchasing their forms? I will need to purchase contracts but can purchase them separately through MM.

if you are happy producing your own honey then do. I was a CM for 9 years and the only thing I ever bought was contracts. :thumbsup:

I wouldn't bother tbh. I got a starter pack for free from my LA when I first started up. The only things I've ever used are the contracts and the medicine/accident sheets. I make up my own forms for most things.

I agree - its a lot of money to fork out for no return - if you are confident with your own forms use them (I do) the starter pack doesn't have any magical powers otherwise I would buy 2. :D
