Hi there,

I was just trying to get peoples opinions on this. I’m planning on handing out some leaflets in my area.I would advertise to feed, clean, play with peoples pets or pet sit. I’m 21 and I’m a university student with no qualifications for it. I have a job at a nursery and I am also unqualified. I want to do a first aid course but I haven’t yet. I have done babysitting in the past for my neighbours. I have had many pets myself and i have pets at the moment, so I do have experience.

Please let me know what you think??

A good idea
Make sure that you have two references at least to check and a up to date DBS check as well. I also recommend having your first aid skills evaluated in case. Also prepare a list of activities to do on any sitting jobs and even create a short list of new places to visit. Set up a account on a recommended site for licensed childcare providers and then you can go from there. Ensure that you know what you are doing. It is a good idea to be totally honest about your fees and so on. Describe your babysitting skills.

Ah ok thank you! Yes, I do have references and a DBS check. I’ve wanted to do a first aid course for a while, just because I think it’s important to have that knowledge. Have you done much babysitting yourself? Thanks again

Hi, you can also try tutoring in things you think you have enough knowledge to share e.g subjects, hobbies etc. Try online platform e.g. Edumentors .
