I return to work in January and I am looking for full-time child care around Walworth/Elephant and Castle/Tower Bridge/Kennington/Camberwell for my son who will be six months old by then. He is a cheery, easy-going chappie and I would love to find someone who is kind and caring. I have the list from Southwark Council, but so far haven't had much success. I would also consider a nanny share.
You could try looking at simplychildcare.com. I used them when they first started back in the mid 90s. Back then they were not internet based and covered only local area, but although they have expanded considerably sinceI can see that it is still operated by the same people. Basically it acts as a contact base, you advertise for the type of childcare you want and those offering childcare advertise the care they give. No conection except i found care for my changing childcare needs through them.
I am newly registered as a childminder and am looking to start childminding in Jan 09. I live near London Bridge. I have a 17 month old daughter and a 3 years old son. PLease contact if you would like a chat.
