I had some from when I worked as a nursery nurse but you don't have to have them.

Most parents will want to know what activities you will be doing with their child and what toys you have and what you will provide e.g snack, lunch, tea etc

I think it would be good to have them available, even if they aren't related to childcare. They should show that you are reliable and responsible, etc. things that parents would be happy to know and feel reassured by.

If you don't have any though it can't be helped. Just don't mention it, I'm sure most of them wouldn't think to ask.


Is that you in the avatar photo? You're very glamorous if so! Make me feel right frumpy! Ha!

I have never actually been asked, but I do have a couple from parents I have minded for in the past and offer them to the parents. I never had any before I started minding though
