I think it’s safe to say that we all need a break from our little people. Whether it’s to work, have a regular break each week or a one off night out, it is definitely an essential.
Not everyone is lucky enough to have family/friends on hand to help out, which leaves the overwhelming task of finding childcare, which can be a minefield, especially as a first time parent. There are so many different childcare options available it’s really difficult to know where to start. If only there was one place where you could easily find various childcare options local to you…
Thankfully childcare.co.uk is just that; a site with over two million users that allows you to easily find a wide range of carers in a range of settings local to you, all listed in one handy place.
The website is simple to use, and best of all it’s completely free! You simply select the kind of childcare setting that you are looking for from a drop down list and enter your postcode – if you aren’t sure what setting you want then you don’t need to worry, you can simply search for all local services. You can drill the search down even further by selecting the amount of miles that you would like to search within.
I was pleasantly surprised to find that there are over fifty childcare options within five miles of me, I had no idea that there were so many options until now! It’s clear to see why childcare.co.uk have hit 2 million users.
The site is super easy to navigate, and provides plenty of detail about each childcare setting. Carers are able to set up their own profile with a photo and a bit about them. They list the services that they offer, their experience and some even clearly display their prices, I absolutely love the transparency.
Carers are able to upload documents such as DBS checks and users are able to rate their services out of five stars and leave a review, the website provides you with everything that you need to easily find a childcare provider that you can trust.
What’s more, childcare.co.uk isn’t just for finding childcare, you can also use the website to search for private midwives, doulas, household help and more! I’m really impressed with the ease of the website and the wealth of information provided, I highly recommend childcare.co.uk.
