Or did everyone get phonecalls of enquirey yesterday? My minder friend and i were putting it down to that whistleblower programme the other night. The parents said that their child was in nursery but they were not happy so were looking for alternatives.

I wish... Could really do with some enquiries before I lose 4yr old to school and 3 after schoolers to senior school in September. :(

Maybe next week?

Good luck to you.

Funny you should say that - I got an email enquiry but didn't make a connection that it might be to do with the programme.

07-03-2008, 08:20 AM

07-03-2008, 08:20 AM

Looks like you could be right monkey and the whistleblower programmes had an effect after all

Nope no phonecalls, but maybe people recorded the programme and we will all be inundated with phonecalls at the weekend / Monday :D

07-03-2008, 09:46 AM
I have had 3 enquirys in 2 days!!

I never thought it could be from the programme - good point though!!

07-03-2008, 10:01 AM
I didnt get any enquirys but then I have removed my remaining places from the list so it looks like I am full!

07-03-2008, 10:11 AM
Nope - no enquiries here either!


07-03-2008, 10:56 AM
no! But then don't have space anyway;)

But will it all change again after Monday nights programme? about the childminder on BBC at 9pm

07-03-2008, 11:01 AM
Ive had none as a result of the programme caus eIve had no full stop :laughing: :laughing: :laughing: xxx

07-03-2008, 12:54 PM
Think i will move nearer you monkey i am not getting anything this side of telford i think we must have fallen off the map or something i be walking around with desperate stuck to my head soon:( :( :(

07-03-2008, 01:42 PM
I don't think you will have to resort to that Carol! I couldn't help with the lady who called though as i am full. Have you given them a call at the cis, it might get your name to the top of the list, or have you advertised at Roaries, play pit etc? I have an advert in my car at all times, and its amazing how many people ask you for details in Morrisons car park!

07-03-2008, 01:49 PM
i had one phone call yesterday baby girl starting july they are coming to see us on tuesday


07-03-2008, 02:46 PM
Didn't know there going to be a programme on on Monday about a childminder.

What's this?

07-03-2008, 04:19 PM
8.30pm Monday night BBC One


07-03-2008, 05:00 PM
Oh I'm sorry but if people see that they might decide having a childminder to look after their dd's and ds's isn't a good idea either!

No - I got no calls. I really am keeping my fingers crossed for some though. Everytime i get back in the house, first thing i do before even putting my daughter down is check the answerphone for messages!!! They will come eventually i'm sure :)

07-03-2008, 05:34 PM
I haven't received any additional calls but then they might start coming soon.

I have been in talks with a mum who I don't think i can help due to the childs age but she is now really worried after watching the programme and don't know what to do for the best :(

07-03-2008, 05:50 PM
Thanks for the tv show link!

Maybe from next Tuesday onwards parents will be quitting their jobs in droves to stay at home and care for their own children!

I have a little boy after school, his brother was in nursery but dad has decided he wants to take him out of nursery and put him with me 4 full days a week, this was a direct result of the programe because he told me, asked me if I saw it and what I thought of nurseries in general. Was considering taking little one out beforehand but program made up his mind for him.
