Oh no.. That is very tough, the only problem with this job is the unpredictability of it.

Oh no - back to the drawing board then. Did they say why? At least you will have the notice period to help a bit

Hope something else comes along soon for you

oh how awful for you, get some posters up everywhere possible, toddler groups, preschools, schools, libarys, maternity wards, i put one in the post office and newsagents and have had calls from them.
make sure you ring the familys information service and change something on your details, every time your details change you get put back to the top of the list.
good luck

That's awful. Surely even Jobcentre have to commit to some sort of notice period don't they - did you sign a contract with them?

Glad your LO is better now. E-mail and ad to the children's centres and your local school and use the local netmums childcare board.

I e-mailed an ad to lots of local schools ones as I wanted term-time only and wanted to target teachers and school staff. Ask if they'll put it up in the staffroom.

Also let all the other local childminders know you're looking and give them your number,then if they have any enquries they can pass them on.

Good luck
