Childcare.co.uk Reviews

We're the UK's largest childcare website and have worked really hard to make the site successful in bringing parents and childcare providers together. Here is just a tiny selection of the kind comments we have received from our members.

"Really impressive website. I found a variety of candidates who were interested in my job having been prepared to pay a nanny agency who couldn't find a suitable nanny. Thanks for getting me a quality nanny and saving me the expensive agency fees."

Nada, Parent, Herefordshire



Just wanted to say a big thank you. I started up my childminding business around 18 months ago and in that time you have provided the platform for me to market and source new business. The website is so user friendly. Highly recommended. Thank you.

Karrie, Registered Childminder, Essex


I was contacted by a family, who saw my profile on this site, and have accepted a live out nanny job with them. This is my third nanny Position through Childcare.co.uk, so I can definitely recommend it.

Shirley, Nanny, Middlesex


My setting is now full and I have a waiting list also so no longer need to advertise for more children. Thanks for your help as I have got 90% of my business through Childcare.co.uk.

Jodie, Registered Childminder, Nottinghamshire


An excellent website and obviously trusted by a lot of parents. I gained three part time childcare jobs through your website - thank you!

Emma, Babysitter, Glasgow


I upgraded to gold membership as I urgently needed to find a local childminder and I found one within one day on Childcare.co.uk. I'm more than happy with the website and I have found a lovely childminder for my children. Thank you!

Mary, Parent, Middlesex


Fantastic concept - really great idea and found success with our first nanny through this site.

Claire, Parent, Berkshire


I have found a wonderful nanny through you and am very pleased. This is the second time I have found a successful match thanks to your website.

After much searching elsewhere and trying to find the right type of childcare, I have now taken on a wonderful nanny from your site.

I have found a lovely childminder through your service after spending weeks having no luck elsewhere. It has been a good investment.

Great website - easy to use and lots of babysitters available in my area. Have found three different girls, all really nice, who have done some work for us. Will continue to recommend you to friends.

Sarah, Parent, Cambridgeshire


I found your site easy to use and we have now secured a great childminder for our children thanks to Childcare.co.uk. I would not hestiate to recommend you to any other parents looking for childcare support.

Your site is great! Thanks to you I have a wonderful nanny job. If I need your services again I will activate my account again. Thanks for your help.

Elena, Nanny, London


We found our new nanny in just over a week - including interviews. The nanny agency are still looking! A fantastic service. Thank you.

Laura, Parent, Gloucestershire


I found a brilliant nanny in my first week with Childcare.co.uk. Really pleased with the website - efficient and easy to use. I've previously used agencies and this was my first time on Childcare.co.uk. I have already recommended it to friends and will be returning if I need a nanny again in future. Thank you very much. The best £19.99 I've spent!

Shaheed, Parent, London


I had been registered with 2 nanny agencies looking for an after school nanny but with no success. Then a friend suggested I try your website and within 10 days I had interviewed 2 suitable candidates and have just employed one of them who has lots of experience, fantastic references and is able to fit in with our very specific childcare needs (after school term time and full time in school holidays). I will certainly recommend you to my friends.

Dr. Pippa, Parent, London


Found my perfect nanny job within a month of been on here, thank you so much!

Amy, Nanny, North Yorkshire


I have found, visited and started my children with a new childminder in the space of ten days thanks to Childcare.co.uk.

Sarah, Parent, Buckinghamshire


Thank you for all your help. I have found a few families in my local area who I now regularly babysit for.

Charlotte, Babysitter, Devon


I have been on your site for just over 2 months and would like to say thank you so much for all your help. I have been with my present employers for 10 years and am now due to start with a new family in February. I would recommend your site to all my friends and am a very satisfied customer.

Margaret, Nanny, West Lothian


My previous childminder took a career change so I needed to find a new childminder for my little boy when I return to work from maternity leave. This site has enabled me to find the perfect childminder and I feel so relieved to know my son will be so well cared for. Thank you.

Jo, Parent, Surrey


I was successful with finding a suitable childminder in my local area within a week. Thank you for your help with this matter.

Chantelle, Parent, Hampshire


Many Thanks I have found childcare and was inundated with childcare providers contacting me. HUGE thanks!

Sophie, Parent, Berkshire


I found a lovely childminder who lives around the corner from me through your website. I found it a great way to contact, screen and assess condidates. My son loves his childminder and your site has provided me with much needed peace of mind on my return to work. I would not hesitate to recommend or use your site again.

Kellie, Parent, Warwickshire


I found the perfect job by using this website. I'm very glad I signed up and paid as it was worth the money.

Carla, Nanny, Middlesex


I found an excellent babysitter through your website. She is fantastic with my son, hard working and reliable. I would definitely recommend this site to friends.

Alice, Parent, London


I found childcare within days of joining this site. Thank you very much. Being new in the area, a student and with no help for my son, I'd reached the end of the tether when I came across your website. I will recommend this site to my friends. Thanks.

Serah, Parent, Lancashire


Your website was very informative and allowed me to research all the childminders I was intested in and then visit several to choose the most appropriate - thank you.

Louise, Parent, Somerset


I have filled all my childcare spaces for my childminding service thanks to Childcare.co.uk. At present I no longer need to advertise. Thank you for your help.

Linsay, Registered Childminder, Lanarkshire


I have been contacted by several families during the short period I have become a gold member. I originally joined a few years ago and find this website the best there is. I have during this time found work with several families and after having a few months off on maternity leavr decided to join up again - and been sucessful once more. Many thanks

Dawn, Registered Childminder, Tyne and Wear


I found a nanny. Very flexible and really happy with them. Nice to be able to deal with the nanny direct without having to go through agencies who try and convince you of the horrors out there and the vast amount of paperwork you need to do. Just not true, not worth the fees. So this site was great.

Jane, Parent, Lancashire


I had a great response from several nannies & childminders. I shortlisted 3 & now have a childminder. I'll be telling friends & colleagues about your site. Many thanks!

Lee, Parent, Renfrewshire


I am very grateful to Chldcare.co.uk. I received many messages and am now full. I actually was recommended to the website through parents of the children who were in my care. Thank you very much.

Jacqueline, Registered Childminder, London


Once we paid for gold membership and were able to contact childminders, we were able to set up appointments with several childminders and in the end there were quite a few who we really liked. Thanks to Childcare.co.uk we have found a childminder for our daughter and we would recommend your website to other parents.

Hester, Parent, London


I found the website really helpful in narrowing down my choices to the local area and I was actually contacted by a micro nursery which I would never even have known about without your website. Having my profile online as well as looking at the care providers enabled me to narrow down my selection easily and took the headache out of it. It's really useful to see the profiles as I could get a feel for the type of childminder.

Louise, Parent, East Sussex


It is about two years since I became a member of Childcare.co.uk and I would like to thank for all the services you provide, as I find this website 'the best' childcare website in the UK.

Kamran, Nanny, Surrey


Many thanks for the contacts received. I have found your website very helpful and have received very genuine contacts. I have used a couple of the babysitters and again have been very impressed. I would have no hesitation to recommend Childcare.co.uk to other parents.

Carole, Parent, Nottinghamshire


Very impressed with your website - within hours of placing our requirements for a nanny we had innumerable viewings which I was then able to sift through and contact - we found someone qualified, local, great references and who fitted our time slots perfectly. Thank you!

John, Parent, London


I viewed a childminder's profile on your website and added her to my list of favorites. She got in touch and I arranged a visit. The rest is history as they say!

Rachel, Parent, Lancashire


This website is fab! Thank you so much for helping me find the perfect nanny job with an adorable family! I have recommended Childcare.co.uk to friends who have since placed a profile on the website.

Lucy, Nanny, Essex


Fantastic.. I have found a child to fill my space within 24 hours of becoming a member!

Sarah, Registered Childminder, Somerset


I didn't have a clue how to arrange childcare for my baby boy for when I returned to work, but I found the Childcare.co.uk site, managed to search for exactly what I needed, narrowed it down to 3 childminders, contacted them all to go visit them and, even though they were all great, I found the lady who was perfect for my son. He's been with her for a little while now, part-time, and he loves it!

Tina, Parent, Cheshire


I have filled my childcare spaces thanks to Childcare.co.uk and I will definately use your site again when I have vacancies - thank you.

Pamela, Registered Childminder, West Midlands


I received several nanny job offers from the childcare website and met some lovely people in the process. I'm very impressed with the site and wouldn't hesitate to recommend Childcare.co.uk or use you again should the need for another job arise. Well done!

Sara, Nanny, Gloucestershire


Found this website very good. I signed up to 2 agencies to find a nanny job without success but managed to find a job on Childcare.co.uk thank you.

Hayley, Nanny, London


This is an excellent website. I have used Childcare.co.uk since the start of my nanny career and have just accepted two part time twins jobs to make a full week. I'm well on my way to specialising in twins which I have past experience in also. I love the fact you have just brought out a new iPhone app. This website has made my life so easy in picking up work. Thank you!

Heather, Nanny, Warwickshire


I found your website extremely useful after months of getting no where with agencies. After creating a profile with Childcare.co.uk I found a job within a week and only 10 minutes from home. I will definitely be recommending you to my friends.

Natalie, Nanny, Shropshire


After joining and sending a few messages to various local parents I wondered if any would reply. Within an hour I had heard back from a parent and found it easy to communicate quickly and effectively. The best thing about it is that they send a you also email notifications about who has viewed you and when you receive a message. I would recommend childcare.co.uk to all nannies, au pairs, babysitters and parents.

Chloe, Nanny, London


The childcare.co.uk website was a wonderful resource for our family and helped us find someone we did not think existed. The site was easy to use and had ample information to give us insight about prospective nannies.

Heather, Parent, Surrey


It's a brilliant site. It got me in touch with registered childminders in the area actively seeking new clients. Thanks to Childcare.co.uk setting out all the right questions so it allowed myself and my partner to shortlist the right people very easily.

Debbie, Parent, Cheshire


As a nanny there are not always families out there looking for a nanny through agencies as they are too expensive, so this site is brilliant, value for money and available 24/7. I have been lucky and found two lovely families that I am now working for and am very happy. I would recommend childcare.co.uk to any one, be them a family or a nanny. The customer service help is also second to none, faultless. Thank you.

Tracy, Nanny, Bedfordshire


I have found childcare.co.uk really helpful in finding a job. Nannying jobs are hard to find in my area but I have had 3 different offers since in the last 9 months and have accepted the last one which I'm really pleased about, so thank you for your help :)

Sarah, Nanny, Devon


Wonderful! After feeling rather petrified at the prospect of not finding a nanny to look after our children so I could take on a different contract, we came across the Childcare.co.uk site and saw that our options had massively increased. We found a wonderful nanny who is well-qualified, lives locally and who the children already adore. We found our nanny in less than a week after a dozen or so responses. After weeks of trying to use agencies at a potential cost of between £400-£1200 (Argh!) with only one response from someone totally unsuitable and 7 miles away we cannot express how grateful we are for less than the cost of a couple of hours babysitting. Thank you.

Dr John Collins, Parent, London


Recently I thought about cancelling my membership as I received so many enquiries but I have decided not to. I shall just put a brief message saying "No vacancies at Present". You never know what life has in store and having my details on this site means I am always prepared and ready to get another kiddie to care for if I need to.

Melanie, Registered Childminder, Surrey


I would just like to say that I think this website is great! I filled two places within one week of registering with childcare.co.uk and I would like to thank you very much!

Kelly, Registered Childminder, Warwickshire


I would just like to say a BIG thank you to your website :) I've found my perfect family to nanny and start in January. I will definitely recomemnd childcare.co.uk to my childcare friends.

Becky, Nanny, Staffordshire


I have found the most fab nanny through your website. She has accepted my job offer, we have agreed terms of employment and everything is looking good for the future. Many thanks.

Claire, Parent, Surrey
