View Full Version : A good day!

After spending all weekend cleaning I had 2 sets of parents call today.

They came together because mums work together and wanted the same childminder so that they could swap days if needed.

I really want this contract because it would fill all my spaces for Sept.

I felt it went really well and we got on. They were impressed by my parent packs, newsletters etc. but they have another cm to see tomorrow.

Anyway, I was telling one of my mums how it went and she said some lovely things about how happy her daughter is and that I am always prepared to go the extra mile to keep little ones happy etc.

She even offered to speak to the parents for me to recommend me!! :D So I asked her to write me a reference which she was happy to do.

I am just so touched - that I don't even care whether I get contract it was just so nice to be appreciated!!

Oh she is even considering changing her choice of school so I can do pick-ups!!

Just thought I would share :D

Best of luck with the contract. It is lovely when you know parents realise what you are doing for their child and that they are so happy.

There are some lovely parents out there, I had a lovely plant given to me today by a mindees mum because she appreciates all the things that i do with her son,and she said he wouldnt do half the things that he does if he was at home. It made me feel very appreciated.
