    For all certificates that have to be displayed I use a cork board mounted on the wall.
    Any other displays that I do, ie the childrens artwork it just gets bluetacked to the wall in the toyroom.

    thats what i need then lol thanks Bunny, i have no where to put my certificates, is it just the ofsted registration one that has to be up? or is it all off them, do you know where i could get a copy of the 'parents poster' ?

    for the childrens artwork i think i will just have to put up on the walls on a daily basis as we dont have a toy room so can put them up for whilst im working and take them down of an evening to keep my personal life separate from working life!

    I have my registration certificate, public liability insurance, Ofsted poster and fire plan displayed.
    I think you can down load a poster from Ofsted.

    I leave it all up, otherwise it takes too long and I'm lazy.


    The posters with chinese symbols on are all the children in my setting's name in Chinese Caligraphy , I did it for the New Year

    I have taken those down now and I've hand drawn their names in big hearts for Valentines day (these are all kept so I can rotate through the year(s) )
    Next will be their names on Flowers.

    I normally do a huge flower at the beginning of the spring, a huge middle part where the pollen is with pictures of us all, and then our names on the petals. It starts at the bottom of my wall and the top of the flower will just reach the door. Then they all have their individual flowers at the bottom. I talk to the children about how much of all our love put together makes one huge flower because we have lots of love to share.

    Sometimes when I sit back at the end of a very hard day I do get a bit miffed that my front room looks like a nursery. We're moving soon so I'm hoping to have a conservatory in the new house that I'll make into a play room with crash mats down, windows covered in their artworks, and make some nice shelves to keep boxes on with their toys in to make it a bit more esily accessible.

    oh that looks good and very professional, at least im getting some ideas at the moment, as think perhaps i need to sort this all out as this could be why im not getting any buisness perhaps as theres nothing on display but then i suppose i need childen in my setting to be able to put some art work on display lol

    My certificates are in photo frames that I just put in a drawer when I'm not working. The children's artwork just gets blutacked on the wall.
