PATHETIC!!! existing childminders gain nothing from an agency except being out of pocket

@Home Childcare have, I believe, some experience of supporting nannies and cms but agencies will have none...unless LAs turn into agencies that is different

In a way @Home Childcare have done us a favour by saying agencies can support new cms but not established and successful ones with little to offer us...therefore remaining independent is still the argument we should put forward: why join an agency when their support will be inferior to what some cms are used to have??

No matter how many new cms are recruited they will never outnumber those already established as long as we keep our nerve and not jump into joining them
