What we are

The owners and contributors of this website have written articles based upon their own experiences. None of these persons make any claim to expertise in any field including childcare. You must therefore view these articles as of entertainment value only, and not as practical advice.

Limitation of our liability

this website is provided free of charge. This means that there is no contractual relationship between us, whether express or implied. You are welcome to browse it, and make copies of it for your own purposes, but you accept the fact that the information in this site is provided by volunteer contributors. We have not carried out background checks upon these contributors and so we have no way of knowing whether or not the information they have provided is accurate. You must not, therefore, rely on any information on this site as being true and factual.

You must therefore take proper qualified advice before making any decisions about children, whether these are yours or someone else's. We can therefore accept no liability whatsoever for any consequences of your paying heed to information printed within the pages of this site.

Illegal activities

Notwithstanding our obligations under current privacy laws in the United Kingdom and Europe, we reserve the right to inform the appropriate authorities if we suspect that any person, persons or organisation is acting in a manner which is in breach of any of the laws of the United Kingdom. In this event we will feel free to provide law enforcement authorities with any information that we hold about suspected lawbreakers.

Our children’s welfare is paramount; if you are ever in the slightest doubt about any aspect of caring for a child you are urged to seek qualified, specialist advice from a professional advisor.
