    Red face My new website by a new childminder!

    Hi,

    I've created a website with Vistaprint and would love the opinions of some experts to see what you think of it and whether from your experience you think it needs any changes?

    Its a big scary world for a newbie!

    Its:

    Any comments or advice gratefully received!

    Thank you ,
    Rachael

    It looks very professional - did you find it easy to make it using Vistaprint? Not being picky but think I noticed a couple of spelling mistakes - traffick on the menu page and prt time on the fees page. Other than that I think the layout is very easy to navigate, clear, friendly and professional - and I'm jealous as I still haven't got round to making one yet!

    Thank you all so much - I have changed all my spelling mistakes...DOH!!

    Vistaprint were easy to use but they do have a habit of trying to get you to buy everything the make from pens to banners!

    I would recommend using them though...

    I've just viewed it on my mobile and it still looks fantastic. Was it easy to do or do you need an understanding of web design?

    Wow! Looks really good. How easy was it and was it expensive? I would love to get round to doing one myself.

    That's a lovely website - it looks really professional!

    I've just noticed a typo, hope you don;t mind me pointing it out: On the 'Menu - what do we eat' page, I think it should say 'slow release energy'

    Well done, hope you get some business soon x

    Really like your site, just had another look. On your front page 'childfriendly' should bet hyphenated....

    It looks great! Did it take you long?
    I keep thinking about doing one but don't really know where to start.

    It looks lovely, very easy to use and contains all the information a parent would need when looking for childcare. Hopefully you will get lots of interest.
