Finding the right childcare solutions with | AD

*This is a paid post in collaboration with

Having relocated back in February we no longer live close to family and friends. This means that if Stuart and I fancy going out one evening, we would have to find a childcare option that is suitable for us as a family.  We recently came across to help to take the stress out of finding someone. is a free platform where you can register and search your local area. All you have to do is register and then create a profile by filling in your requirements. This is all very simple to do as the website is super easy to navigate.  For us we would want someone who has experience with a child who has  additional needs as well as having some kind of childcare qualification along with an up to date CRB check.  

Childcare providers are able to look at your profile and message you if they think they would be suitable and you can then discuss your options further with them before deciding to meet up.

As i mentioned ankve the website is easy to navigate and you can search for a specific childcare provider or all types within however many miles of your chosen location. This way you can find someome close to home or work. You can do this easily by searching by postcode, town or county. Postcode is the option for us as we would want someone close by for ease and this gives the most defined results.

Once you have done the search the results are easy to read. Each babysitter shows a summery of themselves which includes their qualifications, experience, availability and fees. You can also read reviews from other people as well as leave your own too. This is a great way for you to see who has been recommended to put you at ease.

When using we had 7 results within our area that fit our requirements. I feel that's a good amount considering in my search I specified for babysitters with special needs experience.  Luckily we would only need someone occasionally for example once a month for a few hours so Stuart and I can have time to ourselves. We found that quite a few babysitters are flexible too, so if something was to come up such as an important appointment I know where to go to look for somome who's available. is great in that it is free to use  and a stress free way of finding childcare from the comfort of your own home.
