View Full Version : my business name...opinions please :)

So had my inspection last Friday and all went well- just waiting for my cert to come through now- yippeeee! ;)

I'm thinking about a business name as I want something memorable and catchy and also my surname is Cartlidge so don't really want to use my actual name for the name is the business...

so far I have these suggestions:

* Jelly Tots (not sure this would be allowed or if there would be copyright issues
* Sarah Pop-ins (Geddit!?)
* Busy Bees Childminding
* A is for Apple

what are your opinions on these names? Need help as I'm far too indecisive and can't make a final decision without a nudge in the right direction. Cheers, ta! :)

Do you mean your pre registration visit or actual inspection? It is hard choosing a name though, and hoping somebody else doesn't have the same name after all the thought you put into it.

Ask children what they think, they usually come up with the best original answers.

Good luck with this.

Well I'm Bumble Beez...although I only made that decision when I began working with assistants...up until then I just used my name :)
I did search to check that there wasn't a childminder using that name already too.

Oh and congrats on passing your pre-reg by the way :clapping:

I like Sarah Pop-ins, but do wonder if people will think you're more of a drop in/creche type setting....?

I like Jelly Tots but prefer Dolly mixtures! :D- do a search and see if there is a nursery, pre-school or toddler group with that name anywhere near you. I did a search for Hector's House Day Care and Childminding and only found a Nursery in Scotland so decided that it was far enough away to avoid confusion (400 miles away)!
