Expert advice

Advertising your services

To ensure your childminding business is a success, it is important to keep your places full. It may be necessary, at times, for you to advertise your service. Firstly, you will need to produce a card/leaflet giving details of your service and your contact number. It should be clear and legible with no spelling mistakes. Keep your advert short and simple, but make sure it contains relevant information such as the number of vacancies available, your experience and qualifications. You may like to consider putting a card advertising your business in places such as:

  • Local shop window
  • Local library
  • School notice-board
  • Doctor’s and dentist’s surgery
  • Baby clinic
  • Post office
