Default Wait Lists?

Does anyone have a wait list for their in home childcare? If so, how does it work? I have never had one. Whenever I have had an opening, I do interviews and then fill the opening with the family that I think will be the best fit.

If a parents calls inquiring about care but I am full I just jot down some basic info. Name of child, birthday, hours of care needed etc and I say I will call them if anything changes. I donít waste my time doing any kind of interviews or tours if I donít have the space. If an opening weíre to come up I would first consult the list and if I found someone on there that I feel would be a good fit for the current needs of my group I would give them a call. There is no order to the list, I go by best fit over order. That being said I only keep about 6 and my openings are rare.

I have a wait list and use my website for those families wishing to utilize it. I have a short explanation and FAQ's section on the same page that explains to parents how my wait list works.

If you register with the forum, I can share that with you via Private Message.
