I have a little scrapbook w photos of ex charges that ihave taken during activities and outings, so parents can see what I like to do w charges - there are some of the boys carving a pumpkin, trips to the science museum, baking, art and craft, Christmas parties etc. I've put a little caption under each one just cos it's not always immediately clear! All photos have permission from ex employers!

A sample menu planner for 3 different age groups.
Babies
Finger feeders
Independent feeders.
Not forgetting to mention variations due to culture ie beef or appropriate meat. List at least one vegetarian option.

Just wondering what type of folders you all use? A display type were certificates etc can be flicked through ie on a ring binder like this:
http://www.amazon.co.uk/Collins-Conference-Folder-Zipper-Blk/dp/B000I5SF22/ref=sr_1_7?s=officeproduct&ie=UTF8&qid=1342570283&sr=1-7

or a more storage based one were they are filed and you pull them out to show, like this:

http://www.amazon.co.uk/Exacompta-Exafolio-Organiser-Portfolio-Pockets/dp/B001JYLG6S/ref=sr_1_14?s=officeproduct&ie=UTF8&qid=1342608696&sr=1-14

or something completely different?

i agree, the 1st one, the second would be annoying having to pull all the items out.

i use a clearfile, that way everthing stays clean and tidy and doesnt have the chance of getting ripped or anything spilt on it!

I use clear small files.

One larger containing all my documents and many small ones I keep copies of things in. The smaller one eats given to potential employers at face to face interview so they can review in own time when I have left
( always do telephone interview first so only face to face with those who have got past that)

Do you leave a copy of your portfolio (maybe not all the pages!) at the end of the interview?

What does your portfolio have in it?
I have:
CV
Written References
Certificates
Menu
Activites locally (to area of interview)

Anything else I can add?

I only leave my Cv if the agency hasn't sent one. I also leave copies of references if I like the family.  I tell then I'm happy to email any other information if needed from my portfolio but have stopped leaving it as two clients told me afterwards that other MNs asked for my portfolio things about lists of equipment, routines, feeding advice etc and I didn't think that was fair. There are quite a few threads here about portfolios that can help.
