When you need to sort out childcare for your children, it can be a minefield out there. There’s nursery, childminders, Nannies and loads more besides. How do you know what setting is going to be right for you and your child? I’ve been taking a tour round Childcare.co.uk, looking at it as a tool to help you on this most important mission. No matter what you’re after, they can help. Choose from:
- Au Pair
- Private Midwife
- Nursery Nurse
- Maternity Nurse
- Private Tutor
- Household Help
Just enter your choice and location, and you get a list of providers. I did a quick search of childminders within my local area and there were 123 within 5 miles! I never knew there was such a choice. I know my neighbour is a childminder, and yes she is on there. They have profile pictures, prices and information on each listing. Much better than a simple Google search.
You can also post your own job on childcare.co.uk if you have specific requirements, e.g. location, times and days you need and how many children. Local providers can then contact you if they can meet your needs. This would be so helpful for working parents who need that stability.
I’m so glad I found out about this website, because I will need to use it in the future. So many times we’ve had to pull out of things due to no childcare. I will use it for one off babysitting jobs and childminding. You wouldn’t be alone in using them, as they are now trusted by over 2 million users. I would recommend using childcare.co.uk for your childcare needs. You can search with so many different parameters, like OFSTED registered, childminders with first aid qualifications, childminders with a car etc.
I found the website easy to navigate, fast and best of all, ad and pop up free. You just get the information you need. You can create a free account easily. Why not give it a try?
If you are a childcare provider, you can also register your services for free, plus access over 200 online training courses from leading providers.
The childcare.co.uk app is also available on apple store or google play.
