Safe and Secure

When a parent has found a childcare provider they would like to explore further, the Childcare.co.uk secure private messaging system is used to ask questions and to request more information. Parents and childcare providers need not give out any personal contact information including their email address until they choose to do so.

Rate and Review

All childcare providers can be rated and reviewed by parents using our 5 star rating system.

In addition to the rating scores, parents can write their own custom written review of their experience. Childcare providers have the opportunity to respond to their reviews. All reviews and responses are displayed on the website to help other parents decide which childcare provider is most suitable for their needs.
