Well the subject header says it all really.

I start my Child Paediatrics First Aid tomorrow but was wondering when I should start advertising?

I'm currently on maternity leave and am due to return to work in May but ideally, I'd like to know that I have something sorted well before then and only can I do this by securing a place?

Obviously need to be careful no-one from work finds out but me being me, I want to know things are sorted so it doesn't play on my mind.

I am dreading becoming qualified and then not finding a mindee and then being forced to go back to work.

Can I ask where you're advertising?

I've had some flyers made up but of course they all state "registered childminder". How have you worded for pre-reg?

I have set up a website which I haven't yet made live but how did you get yourself 'out there' in advance of becoming qualified?

Thanks :)

Great thanks for that. As soon as my leaflets come, I shall get them out then. Never really thought to just mention it if I get any enquiries. Good idea, thanks a lot Hebs!! :)
