    Default What do you call your business

    Im currently have doubts about the name I picked and wrote on my ofsted reg form

    "Little Gems minding service"

    I just wondered what others have chosen I think I want something more catchy.

    i like little gems , its nice.
    I spent weeks trying to think up a name. i liked curious caterpillars but a fairly close minder has the name. also muddy puddles , little robins , curious minds ,the tree house . I wanted something that reflected our kind of setting , we are usually found in the middle of sherwood forest! ds1 suggested 'the zoo at 82'.
    i would include something to do with your area too especially if you advertise on the car.

    I love Little Gems too! I'm thinking of having a name too - thinking of 'Jumping Beans' but again I'm not sure either!

    I have a hatred of "Little ......." anything sorry!

    If you like it though that's all that matters.

    My Dh is registering at the moment and I'm toying with the idea of calling ourselves ' Family Day Care ' .

I can not easily share work I have created from my own thoughts, I used to have a cb radio handle and was too embarrassed to use it! Just one of my funny little quirks!

    If I create something for my own childminding business, I am okay with showing the policies to parents, but if a cm friend wants to see it I get really embarrassed, same with assignments for exams! I have no idea why because i get very positive comments and am more than capable, just not at all comfortable with it, in fact it makes me really squirm, apologise profusely and go red and hot!
