“Just to say thanks. I needed a professional childminder for my little boy at the weekend - (on some Saturdays) and found Childcare UK easy to use. I have found a suitable person through the site and this has enabled me to go to work feeling content that my little one will be well taken care of.”

I’m ofsted registered childminder since 2014. Enjoying thoroughly my work with children. I got all jobs from childcare. Basically they are my main provider and I really like this website. I’m very much thankful to this website. I have introduce this website to many providers as well as parents to find the right provider for their children.
Once again thank you so much for everything.

Great idea but app needs a few add-ons


I downloaded the app because I was looking for nurseries and pre-schools in the area. Maybe it does work when searching for a nanny or childminder, but when searching for nurseries it just gives you the name and contact details. What would really be useful is to show the locations of all the nurseries in your search area and a link to their website and avoid having to google their name to find out whether they are local. I didn’t find it useful at all.

Developer Response

Hi AnonLondon27 - Thanks for your review. We do show the approximate distance between members in our search results but for child protection and safety reasons, we do not display the precise location of members on a map and have no plans to do so given that safety is our highest priority.

I am a gold member and I have enjoyed all the information that Childcare has offered.

I have also used this site first when looking for nanny jobs and so far have been employed solely from parents on this site.

Thank you Childcare for the wonderful service you supply.
