I am unsure what to do!!!! I am still wating for my registration number and start-up pack after having my registration vist in the middle of December. A woman rung me tonight asking if i could look after her 2 children. i explained that i was waitng on my registration certificate and would give Ofsted a ring tomorrow to hurry things along, how long does it normally take for your registration certificate to come through?

Well done Karen or getting your first enquiry.:clapping:
I am not too sure how long it takes to get oyur certificate through, have you had all your checks done, etc?
Maybe OFsted might be able to hurry ot up for you and tell oyu how long, approx it will take to get it out to you.

I hope it hurrys up so you can get started.XX

Well done on your first enquiry.

The whole process for me took 12 weeks from the day I sent in all the forms.

Defo ring them & explain that you have a family who is desperate!

They may?? hurry things along.

I had my pre-reg-inspection on the 8th October and recieved my certificate on the 9th January. So approx 12+ weeks

It is the police checks that takes the time - once mine and DH's CRB's were back we had the certificate within days!!!

Good luck xx
