Having the right childcare arrangements in place is essential.

Knowing that your child is thriving in a childcare setting gives you confidence and peace of mind while you’re at work or studying.

SearchChildcare is the perfect tool for parents. It allows you to find local childminders, nurseries or nannies and learn more about their settings and message them directly.

Increased functionality means that you are now able to search within half a mile of an address, location or landmark.

Embedded Google maps enable you to see the general location of a setting on a local map. Plus, there is a raft of advanced search options, including:

  • Setting type – childminder, nursery, nanny
  • Available spaces
  • Funded places
  • Childcare vouchers
  • Looking to partner with other providers
  • Tax-free childcare
  • Emergency childcare
  • Nursery/school pick-ups. 

Childcare settings are all different, and different types of childcare will suit you and your child at different stages of their development.

Many providers link to their most recent inspection report and their website or social media pages. You can message any childcarers you’re interested in securely and for free. Start your search now.
