    Red face Does my company name have to have childminding in it

    hello
    I am currently at the pre reg stage on becoming a childminder and I'm looking into names/logos etc.


    Does anyone know if I have to be called e.g. Kirsty's "childminders" or could I be called Kirsty's "childcare"

    Also anywhere I can get a cheap logo designed too would be grateful.

    As far as I know you can be called anything you like

    Think about how you will be found when people do a google search for childminders in their home town...

    They will put 'childminder' or 'childcare' into google plus town name - so your website or blog or whatever internet presence you have needs to link to those words but it doesn't necessarily need to be your name

    I don't have a business name as my name is quite well known in the area, people always recommend me by name on fb groups.

    Same as Muffin. I have a very similar name to you, and I am known as my name. I do have a website, and my website address is town name childminder.com.
    I think parents would google your local area and childminder, but on childcare.co.uk and our local FIS, I think your own name is more personable. Also if your parents recommend you to their friends they are more likely to tell another parent your name.
