How do you find the right childcare for your children? It is hard to know where to start and who exactly to trust with your family whether you are looking for help for whilst you are in work and require regular childcare or just for a one-off night out.
We are lucky that there are childcare options and after-school clubs in Bella and Sienna’s school that we can take advantage of when we need to. The girls also see their grandparents regularly who are able to help us out by having the girls both stay over so Nick and I can have some time to ourselves.
But what if we didn’t have that support? One of the most important things to choose as a parent is another person to look after your kids if you can’t be there for them. You need to know the person or company you choose is suitable for your whole family.
Childcare.co.uk is an easy way to find childcare that is suitable for your needs. A one-stop site where childcare practitioners and parents alike can source childcare or advertise their services. It is free to create an account and get started looking straight away. With over 1.8 million registered users and an informative front page, it is easy to find out what information is available to you to help you out with your search. In fact, you are even able to get started without creating an account.
All you need to do is enter what type of childcare option you are looking for and your postcode to find out all suitable childcare options available to you. It really is that easy. But how do you know who to pick and sift out the results? All childcare providers come with a full profile, including pictures and each profile has reviews and a star rating given by people who have used their services previously.
This really takes away a lot of the hard work associated with finding someone to look after our children, doesn’t it? Word of mouth is usually the best way to find a childminder, babysitter, nanny or even school, but Childcare.co.uk is the digital version of this and is really helpful when looking for any type of childcare. You can even check out schools, private tutors as well as nurseries and babysitters to name a few. And if you are unsure of what you need to be checking when making your decision, they have some handy guides too which will help you out and point you in the right direction.
After browsing through the site I found it really helpful and interesting. There is so much information and everything is really clear and easy to find. With it being free to register, there is no obligation to book any service should you not be completely happy with what is available in your area. I think it is a great resource for parents, especially if you are struggling for help or have no idea where to start. All you need to do is log in and everything you need to look for, ask or check out is already done for you with the results and reviews ready for you to see.
Have you hired childcare before? What do you look for first when using a childcare provider? Have you tried Childcare.co.uk?

I’ve looked at Childcare.co.uk before but i’ve not actually hired anyone from it. We are lucky to have babysitters within the family and after school clubs for Lucas. #KCACOLS
You are very lucky! 🙂 x

I have never used anything like before as we use family for babysitting. But this would be perfect for us as we wouldn’t even know where to start if we were looking outside the family. #kcacols
That is true! X
