We are an online search site enabling parents to find professional, flexible childcare solutions quickly and easily - putting an end to unnecessarily high childcare costs.
As we are not an agency we do not meet every childcare professional that registers with us, but we do give you as much advice as possible to ensure that the hiring process is as safe for you and the childcare that you choose is perfect for your needs.
But don’t just take our word for it…

Deciding on the type of childcare that you need can be a confusing process for parents. Do you need a Nanny, Babysitter, Au Pair, Mother’s Help or Childminder? Do you want them to live in or out? Do you need an Ofsted registered professional? We have many types of childcare on Findababysitter.com but if you like many parents have no idea where to start take a look at our guide before you search and find the perfect childcare professional to meet your needs.
Once you have registered you will be asked to post a job. If you do not complete they job description at this stage you can go back at any time and add your job for free.

Your job will be approved by us and live within 24 hours. Your job will then be listed in our ‘Find Childcare’ section and candidates can apply.
If you are a nanny agency you can post multiple jobs to recruit nannies for your clients. Find out about our special features for childcare agencies.

You can enter your postcode and search by area and filter by type of childcare, languages, qualifications and availability. Once you have found suitable candidates for your job you can invite them to interview.
