wow out of the blue....... a lady called wanting childcare for 3 children.
2 before school and one 10 month old 730 - 230

i have said on the phone that i'm sure i can help, and im confident i will. only the 2 beofre school are in year 2 and reception.
so am i right in thinking that if i take the rec year one on then that space is taken till 9am. it'll be hard to find another parent wanting care after 9am.

or possibly if lo is a 'rising 5' would it be ok to fill the space.

oh im getting muddled i think.

also she is a teacher wanting TO. again i dont mind as my mindee now goes to full school september and mum had mentioned jsut a school hols only from then.

its all seeming a huge puzzle. i'm sure i'll get the hang of it.
doe anyone have a chart or something where you can fill your spaces/ages of children so you know exaclty when you have space for others. iykwim.

That's great news!

If the younger child is in full time school then they can count in your over 5's places (you need to have something on your certificate stating this).

There used to be a childminder ratio grid on the bromley website under other downloads.

It can get complicated when different children slot into different times... I have 7 all part timers over 4 days.

Good luck with sorting it out! :D
