    Default New Website: Clare's Little Tots

    Hi

    I am a newly registered childminder (certificate should be in the post this week). I have my website pretty much in a place where I am now happy with it although I'm side I'll be continually updating it.

    Any feedback or what has and hasn't worked for yours would be much appreciated. I've also been unsure about adding my actually hourly fee and availability to it. What do you do?

    Thanks

    I haven't got any advice to offer regarding what works on websites however your site looks fantastic and is very user friendly
    Personally speaking I wouldn't put fees and availability on the site as availability can change very quickly...also you may find you want to, or need to, charge slightly different rates for tto, school pickups, ad hoc care etc.

    I don't have a website so cannot offer any advice but had a quick look & your website looks great - lots of info & easy to get around :-)

    I wouldn't put details of fees or availability as they can change or differ for different parents.

    Hi Clare

    Your site looks great! I do state my opening hours and fees on mine (not my availability as my brother updates it for me so would have to keep asking him to change it!) I find parents like being able to know the fees straight off without having to come and ask.

    I think your website is fantastic. It looks lovely, love the font, size of writing, pictures and links. All really great. I wouldn't change it.

    Great website Clare I haven't got a website but I always let parents know what my fees start at to give them a rough idea. I charge differently for full-time, part-time, ad-hoc, before and after school and term-time only!! x

    Thank you for the feedback and nice comments.

    I've had 10 enquiries in total and all have been via my website - 5 of those have arranged to visit and 3 of those of signed up so far so it's working really well :-)

    I think its fab

    The only thing I would change is.... I wouldn't put my full address online as I'd feel a bit vunerable having my address for anyone to see... I'm a bit of a internet safety freak.
    From your website I know your full name, what you look like, your full address, phone number, and your daughters name and what she looks like, your husbands name....... and I can see that you are out of the house on school runs at certain times......that's something to think about.


    Otherwise its fab

    Time Out.. The perfect time for thinking about what you're going to destroy next.
