AD – One of the hardest things I found being a Mum was going back to work after having my babies. I know it is something that needs to be done but that doesn’t make it any easier to stomach sometimes. I had battles with anxiety and insomnia and just being plain exhausted when I went back both times previously. Finding childcare in your area is a necessary job and quite often needs to be done quite a long time before you go back; sometimes when you are still pregnant!
You need all the help you can get, something to help settle that uneasy feeling in your stomach and this is where the award winning website Childcare.co.uk is a real lifeline. It is really easy to navigate and you simply choose what sort of childcare you are keen on, whether it be a childminder or nursery and add your location to find local childcare to you.
It’s not just childcare either! You can look at schools, after school care and even Doulas if you are pregnant.
There is an option to sign up for free too. This allow you to create a profile, showing your childcare needs. You can browse various childcare providers including looking at fees, reviews, childcare experience from providers and securely speak to carers via secure messaging. Perfect for some peace of mind before you start visiting places.
I still remember signing up when looking for care for my gremlin; my first beautiful girl.
We weren’t sure whether or not we wanted a childminder or a nursery for her but we wanted the local options for us. I easily signed up to Childcare.co.uk and found a list of both in my local area, as well as reviews and more information. We visited a childminder from this and a few nurseries, before deciding on a nursery which both her and her younger sister have attended. I have always been so happy with my choice; friendly staff, genuine care for my girls and great value.
Things may change for my little man, as we are looking at a child minder this time, as easier for my husband who has to do the drop-offs and close to the school my gremlin is at and her sister may be moving to the school nursery.
I knew I needed that peace of mind I was making the right choices for my children when choosing their childcare and going back to work and Childcare.co.uk, helped me with that.
