View Full Version : Ad hoc childcare for school children

06-05-2014, 12:40 PM
Please talk to me about ad hoc care for school children on teacher training days.
I am newly registered and this is the 1st enquiry I have had, please can you give me some advice on contracts, how it would work in terms of ratios, fees to charge etc, it's all new to me, I ideally I would prefer younger ones of a more permanent full time basis but can't afford to turn business away and it might lead to more business.

Thank you x

what age are you talking about? If the child takes up an under 5 place it might not be best to take them when you are looking for more permanent / longer term children...

If the child takes up a 5 - 8 space it's not so bad - but even so if other children come along you might find yourself resenting not having set days / hours...

Something to think carefully about xx
