If you have phone number the first parent it might be worth ringing them and explaining that you have someone waiting for the place so you need an immediate response from them.I must admit that I have now learned to limit the time I keep a place open for exactly this reason and I explain to parents that if I haven't heard from them then I will assume they no longer want the place. Good luck with sorting it! Cx

the first parent didnt give me her number this is where i have gone wrong i sould have asked for it. i think will give them till 4 today and if havnt rung me asume there wont be coming and ring the other parent back. i was hoping ofsted would let me have the child as well as my sis as my daughter on a weds so i would only have 2 children anyway but because my daughter not counted on my certificate carnt
