Well - I have done it - the mum came today and was so impressed that she signed then up straight away - she said she had complete confidence that I could cope with 8 and I was so pleased at her reaction to all the things I do I just said yes!!!

So from Mid October I have 8 - should lose a bit of weight in the settling in weeks!!! :laughing:

In the holidays I have 7 full timers (8am-6pm), it is tiring but there is never a dull moment! At the moment it feels quiet with only 5, trying to fill my vacancies.

Good Luck

Wow you are going to be sooo busy!

I have that many after school some days but I work with another childminder.

Enjoy! :D

That is great

In the holidays I have 10 and it is hectic but a lot are over 8 and they help too.

When I go out there are 3 of us to watch over our brood, which total 22

If you team up with others you should find it helps keep them occupied

Grief, don't know how you all do it. Most CMs in my area only seem to have two or three during the day and maximum 4 (in total) after school.
Bet the money is good though :thumbsup:
