My sister in law is a child minder and if all are like her then they're fab.
Plus your child will pretty much get one to one attention, as they'll only be looking after a few kids.
I have to admit that would be my ideal if I was in your position. But my mum is looking after our little one when it comes along so I can go back to work.

Hi. Ive trained and worked as a nanny then had my own chd, then childminded and now at pre-school with slighty older chd. have lots of friends who are still childminders and think they are fab. Its more personal for you and child. more reasonable and generally more flexible. You can get a list online from your local council and can check out there most recent ofsted report. most gd childminders have references and will let you speak to existing childrens parents. good luck.
