:clapping: someone looking for three full days a week. Had quite a few enquiries now but nothing set in stone yet. Got my fingers crossed someone will book me soon.

I always get nervous sending my fees over as I dont want to price myself out of the market but at the same time, want to earn a living! I am undercutting the local nursery anyway but not sure about the other minders. It's tough isn't it?

Can I just ask, when someone asks for your fees, do you generally hear back from them or do they tend to just disappear?

I've not yet had anyone come back to me after me sending them my fees. Maybe this is a bad thing?? So hard not to know when they never come back to you to let you know either way.

Have you checked on your CIS site? That will give you the fees other minders in your area charge. That way you will know if you have priced yourself right.

Yeah I remember doing this when I was looking into Childcare myself before I decideed to become a minder but no-one disclosed any of their prices.

I remember at our business training, they advised us not to do this so that we got enquiries otherwise people may have been put off and gone with someone 'cheaper'.
