We don’t have many relatives living near us. My parents live abroad, my husband’s brother and family lives abroad. We can only count on my husband’s mum to look after the children for time to time. This is an occasional babysitting and when we need more than that we use other childcare services. But it’s not always possible and often we wonder if the children are too much for her. It’s a tiring and hard job to look after a 4 and a 6 years old! So we often wonder if we just book a babysitter.
We have recently discovered Childcare.co.uk which is site with 2 million users trusting their services when it comes to emergency or long term child care. Childcare.co.uk helps you to find childcare options locally and it’s an award winning online social networking platform for parents, childcare providers and private tutors. There’s two way to register: looking for childcare or looking for jobs in childcare and Childcare.co.uk will help to find each other. Creating an account is free. (There’s also a Gold Membership available, with great features and benefits.)
As a parent I can search for babysitters, nannies, registered childminders or private tutors. So I’ve tried to search for babysitters because that is what we need sometimes at least for now. When I typed our postcode, I found 2400 babysitters in our area (5 miles radius of our postcode). When scrolling through. the profiles I’ve seen plenty of registered female and male baby sitters with years of experience as well as agencies.
It is also possible to refine the search for night time, hotel, weekend, daytime babysitters but even ones that have experience with newborns, Montessori qualified or with First Aid training. During these strange times it’s also important to mention that for some families professional life cannot stop and they need childcare right now, you can book Corona Helpers as well.
The site will automatically list the childcare providers with the most positive reviews on the top of the list. On. the list you can see their hourly fee and a short bio – and if you are. interested you just click on view profile or message. The website is simple, clean and. easy to understand and find everything you need.
