Have you been wondering how to find local childcare easily ?
I am so excited to introduce you to the UK’s biggest online network for parents and carers, Childcare.co.uk
It is such a useful site, and such a popular one too!
So what is it? What does it do?
Well it is actually an award winning online social networking platform for parents, childcare providers and private tutors with over 1,500,000 members.
It is an excellent place to go if you are looking for childcare as you able to register then search locally for what you need. There is also a safe secure messaging system for you to chat with potential carers.
If you are looking for childcare jobs you can also register then search locally and browse the profiles of families looking for childcare. You can read reviews and even message with carers.
How useful is that! It certainly makes looking for childcare a lot easier doesn’t it!
There isn’t a larger choice of babysitters, nannies, registered childminders or private tutors anywhere else – so this is most definitely the place to be.
It is free to create an account and the system is so straightforward to use. It has great reviews too.
I have just had a go at searching for baby sitters in my local areas and 900 came up within 5 miles all with fees, some with reviews, all with profiles. I could search on distance, reviews, newly listed etc and I was so impressed! Some had uploaded qualifications, most had photos – this is a great way to find someone quickly and easily.
I would personally always want references and make checks on anyone working with my kids and I would also want them to meet them a few times at least before I left them in their care.
Childcare.co.uk also take checks really seriously and have a brilliant article on checks you need and what you should ask and look for here
The site also provides access to lots of training opportunities and lots of information about choosing childcare providers, what to pay them, all about insurance and so much more.
It is a real one stop shop for all things childcare,
