Being a parent means taking care of our children, giving them a safe and happy home environment. I have been lucky to work from home and whenever possible have been here to care for my children, calling on Grandparents if needed.
Hearing from other parents who do struggle with child care, and how difficult it is to find someone trustworthy I have been researching to see if there are options available.
What happens if you have no one else?
Childcare.co.uk are an award-winning online social networking platform for parents, childcare providers and private tutors. With over 2 million members since they launched in 2009, with apps for both iOS and Android users.
How Do I Know My Children Will Be Safe?
As a parent I know how precious our children are to us, and knowing your child will be safe is priority to anything. With that in mind the first place I would look is reviews by other parents.
You can see and read reviews from others who have used the service, which is always a positive start. Giving you peace of mind before you look further into using the services.
Finding Suitable Childcare
Before you register you can find out more about the services they offer, who is available in your area and narrowing down to your personal preferences. So even if at this stage you are unsure you can still research the site looking for the perfect person to look after your child.
Even at this stage you are still secure that you do not need to give any personal information until you feel you are ready to. Again giving both you and your family security.
My Overall Opinion
This is such a great service for parents needing child care, especially at the moment while we are all dealing with the corona virus and are limitations. What if you are a keyworker you are essential to your work. We may need to use child care more now than ever before. This gives you the opportunity to look for last-minute child care, knowing it is safe and secure. I know as a parent who is protective of my own children this is a service I would have used when they were younger.
