    Smile Celebrating 25 Years of Childminding what do others do

    Next month I will have reached my milestone of minding for 25 years.
    I have organised a party and have invited as many children and parents as I can get hold of. Just counted the children altogether 64!!!!!!! Will be nice to find out what some of the children/adults are doing now.
    The day after I am going out for a meal with local childminders.
    It certainly is something to celebrate as I have survived EFYS and still enjoy my job very much.

    What have others done when you have reached 25 years?

    Default Congratulations Carol

    Just wanted to add my congratulations on your 25 years of childminding.

    I will have been childminding for 20 years next year as well as celebrating my 50th birthday, I think big celebrations all round are called for.

    Also this is my first post so hello everyone.

    Congratulations - I originally registered in 1989, but gave up for 8 years - so I guess I have to start counting again from 2005 - don't think I'll get to 25 years this time round - I'm already feeling too old for all this!

    What a lovely idea to have a re-union - make sure you get the newspaper to do an article - I have got an old clipping dated 1988 about my daughter's old childminder saying "Sue is Mum to more than 150 children" think it was for national childminding week, to raise profile of childminders. My daughter is 27 next week and I trusted Sue with my baby aged just 8 week old - she is a lovely lady, still lives locally and she came to my daughters wedding earlier this year.

    congratulations on your 25 years

    6 years to go for me - I will probably try and do the same - still see some of my ex children now for my charity coffee mornings with the parents

    and if I get that far I will certainly have a few glasses of bubbly
    Happy to be back with the Greenies
