insurance is tricky .you can only have 6 children as a minder.
you would have to open a pre school to do more.

Hi. I tried that last year but unfortunately I don´t live in a busy enough area. Plus I found hard to get insurance. Having said that I didn´t advertise enough and this year I have a few that have come to me wondering about this summer. All said and done my own kids had a blast. If you put work into it I think it can work as feedback was great but I let it down. Good luck

Does any childminder run, say three hours sessions a day, activity/theme based hours (bit like summer camps) for school holidays (for pre-schoolers only).

I currently only have term time holidays childminding only and would like to keep busy.

Hi thanks for your reply...looking for a bit outside help I suppose. My area not much demand for full time and if there is unfort some parents watching the pennies so I more than likely dont take.
luckily iv a few families parttime so work out better but iv to work 6 days mon to sat.
My circumstances change next sept as no playschool run and would be able to offer 3.4 hour sessions daily for preschoolers in nappies as no where local at all for them. If I keep price relatively low and only run when iv three kids could be financially worth it while offering a nice service.
