View Full Version : Being inclusive, query from a parent

01-02-2010, 08:56 PM
There is a 5yr old boy with SN who goes to a pre-school nearby and he has to have one to one care ALL the time as he lashes out, bites, kicks, pinches and throws anything he can get his hands on.
Half the time when he has to be still for feeding he goes into a 'giraffe' chair that keeps him and othe children safe.
The mum asked me if I could have him for a couple of hours a week, but the time she wants clashes with another mindee who is very young and I just could not risk him hurting the little one.
I said to her that if it was in the morning I could do it and if it was for only 2hrs BUT I could only do it from her house.
It is fully proofed against his throwing and there is no way I could do that in my house.
Are we allowed to mind from someone else's home if its for only 2hrs?

ask your insurer...some will include babysitting
