Iv just requested an application to apply to become a childminder!
just wondered if there is any advice hints or tips you can provide?

i am quite worried about being told i am too young as im only 22? would that be an issue?

also i live in a 2nd floor flat... will this have an impact?

No you're not too young and you've nothing to lose by going on the training course, you'll be given the opportunity to ask people who know your area about your property, as I said go for it you've nothing to lose.

I am sure you will have no bother!

Make sure you get enrolled for the SCMA induction course it really helps.

As for your flat that will not be a problem as long as you prepare comprehensive safety policies you will be fine.
