Can anyone please give me any tips of ...(when I get any children!!)...... where to take them and what to do. I am already a childminder but moving area... and I feel like a fish out of water. Any suggestions would be welcome. Many thanks......:panic:

Sorry I'm no where near you but local councils and health centres should both have a list of local toddler groups etc :)

CIS should have a list too or ask CIS for the nearest childrens center who should be able to help you out. Get in touch with your DO as well who should be a mine of information

check out netmums.co.uk for your area - should have loads on there.

Hi Charlie

I am Area Representative for a childminding group with SN2 but the areas are too many to mention.

Send me a pm and I can guide you to the correct co-ordinator if I am not it.

We are busy at the moment so it won't take long for you to get some work.
