If anyone knows me I am a nightmare about leaving my kids with anyone, even for an hour- so I have to know exactly who I am leaving them with and if others will give the person a glowing reference. This makes it difficult to have anyone other than relatives to look after my little ones.
Childcare.co.uk have changed that. The website is perfect for people like me who need to know who is looking after your kids and if people think they are great as there are genuine reviews off people who have used them. I am not currently in the market for a babysitter but I have been looking for a tutor for Erin after school for months with no such luck.
Erin really struggles with maths like I did as a kid and the concept is lost on her (and me! I hated maths as a child and trying to teach her is hard!!). I went to Childcare.co.uk and entered my search which was so simple (no need to register until you have found what you are looking for.) I put my postcode in and used drop down boxes which shows you everything the site has on offer search wise.
After months of searching through Facebook and other websites I came to the conclusion that I couldn’t find a trusted tutor for Erin but Childcare.co.uk has proved me wrong. I found loads of tutors and was able to look into their work history, see a picture of what they look like and even see a copy of their DBS check. It also tells you- the person’s availability, pricing, qualifications, experience, reviews and the ability to “like” and “message” the person.
All of this makes it really simple to narrow down exactly who you would like to use for the job. Once you have decided you then need to register. You can either do this with Facebook or on a really simple form that takes less than a minute it’s to complete and even better it’s totally free.
There are so many categories of things to search from nannies to virtual tutors even which school to choose for your little one! Which I had no idea was the case I literally thought the site was just for searching babysitters. You can even find jobs on there if you would with children. There is also an app to make everything easier for searching and answering messages to securing your booking.
I will definitely be using the service to hire a tutor for Erin. Childcare.co.uk will ensure I can find the perfect person to teach Erin and to be 100% happy with the person I am leaving her with. I have known others who use the app for last minute babysitting and love how easy it is to sort at short notice. The website has been running since 2009 and has over 2 million people who use the website.
