I have my pre-reg visit on Monday at 9.30am and I was just wondering when it will be ok to begin advertising places or do I have to wait for my registration certificate to come through the post. Could I advertise before it comes for january vacancies, I also want to build a website for my childminding and it would be great to start building it so it's ready for when I am registered.

HELP!! What does everyone think should I wait or advertise after the visit on monday!!

:blush: :blush:

All depends on how long your CRB takes! Tell everyone but don't actually advertise yet! They came out to me on the 25th November and it took until almost mid Feb before all CRB's and paperwork went through. Another childminder who had their's 2 weeks before me, cleared 2 weeks before me so it was the same timeline.

You can track your CRB online. I would wait until you are on the final stage of the process before starting to advertise as still takes about a week from the final stage completing.

I only say that because I lost a mother wanting childcare for two children as the process took so long. It was horrible! Start on your website though!

Good luck for Monday
