“I have found the most fab nanny through your service. She has accepted my job offer, we have agreed terms of employment and everything is looking good for the future. Many thanks.”
“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 have found a wonderful au pair so please could you cancel my listing. Once again many thanks for your wonderful service.”

Ratings and Reviews
Good but too expensive
The app itself is ok. The distance and mile radius is way off, the advance search feature doesn’t work if you select more than one key word or tag. Users have said that they cannot send messages to me sometimes and it’s a whopping £25!!!!!! FOR ONE MONTH??!!?!! I would love to have it for another month but it’s way too expensive!! The benefits of the app are good, it’s easy to use and good for finding work. I’ve paid my £25 but still am yet to secure a position, I would have been able to afford another month should the price have been at least halved. I can’t fork out more than 25 quid in two months! The response team and customer service were lovely though! A guy named Rick was really fast and efficient in helping me out the other day with some issues I had. Overall I do recommend this app but wish it was a bit cheaper :(
Developer Response ,
Dear yougetfourstars - Thanks for your review. We are pleased to hear that you would recommend our app and that you have found our customer service to be fast and efficient. We will pass on your kind comments about our team member Rick! We weren't able to replicate the issues you mentioned about the advanced search but we have notified our engineering team and have asked them to have a detailed look. We are sorry that you can only afford one month's gold membership. If you'd like to get in-touch with us at www.childcare.co.uk/contact then we'd love to give you another month with our compliments. Best wishes Childcare.co.uk
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.
Good service but...
I was enjoying using this app as a way to contact parents looking for childcare. However my account was closed abruptly and I haven’t been given a reason why. If my account was re-opened and I was given an explanation, I would rate 4 stars.
EDIT: As promised, I now have changed my rating due to the reopening of my account. The support team are very effective and explained the situation quickly
