As a gold member you will receive lots of exclusive benefits and offers. Whether you are a parenting looking for a Nursery, Childminder, Babysitter, Emergency Childcare or a Nanny, we can provide a large amount of selection for you to choose from.
Ellie Polly talks about the positives and negatives as a parent and gives a non-biased view. She also speaks about some of the features that she likes, dis-likes and mentions about any improvements and shows the differences between gold and the free membership options.
Below are some of the features of our system. We are constantly adding/updating features. If there is a feature that you would like to see in your dashboard, let us know and our developers could look into it.

Exclusive Deals and Offers are only available to our ‘Gold’ members and not available to non-members or free members.

Each deal or offer has its own terms and conditions, so it is important that you read them carefully before applying.
The Secure Messaging system allows you to communicate with childcare providers. This is a feature made available to all users, however users who are not gold members will not be able to see/view received messages, unless either the sender or the recipient is a gold member.
You can also block a user which will hide all future messages that they send you. If a user is either sending you messages that would be deemed as going against our terms and conditions of service, simply report the user, which will create a ticket to our admins, who will look at and respond accordingly.
Some of the features of the messaging system include:
- Shows the conversations you have had with users

Help and Support Tickets
If you require a little help in using our system, there are a number of methods we have put in place. Our self help FAQ is designed to simply and effectively answer any queries which you may have relating to your account. Or if you would like a member of the team to investigate and respond to you, then simply create a support ticket and a member of the team will get back to you asap. Support is available through a number of channels, which include:
- Our FAQs
- Raising a support ticket
- Giving us a call
- Online instant chat
This section simply shows you what you have done in your account. We log almost everything, just so that if anything breaks our developers are able to look at your logs to determine what went wrong and where. We also log things for security purpose.
Free Customer Prize Draws
Sometimes when we are feeling a little generous, occasionally we will give free prize draws to our customers. for example, on black friday 2019 we gave away a brand new TV, £100 Food voucher and two £25 vouchers. You don't have to register to be entered, however if the customer prize draw is only for gold members then you will see this in the deals section of your dashboard.
Our online search facility allows you to quickly search for adverts by the means of entering into the serach form:
- A service type i.e nursery/childminder/nanny etc...
- A miles radius, to ensure that the search does not retrieve adverts greater than your maximum radius
- A postcode so that the radius can start from a centre location.
Weekly Alert Schedule
Don't have time to keep searching every day? Our weekly alert schedule gives you the flexibility to receive adverts via your email. You can chose which day you would like to receive the weekly email on. This can be easily setup on the find childcare page against any search criteria.
Receive & Send Feedback to other Users
The ability to receive feedback from other members will build up trust for parents, which may lead to more enquiries. We also allow you to rate parents. If somebody clicks on View Feedback, then they will be able to see the feedback you have received and feedback you have gave to others, a bit like how ebay opperates its feedback system.
You can receive/send feedback and also include a star rating, the rating is as follows:
- 5 stars - Excellent
- 4 stars - Good
- 3 stars - Average
- 2 stars - Poor
- 1 star - Bad
If you have received bad feedback which was not accurate then you have the right to contact us and explain why. If our team believes that the system has been abused and given incorrectly in a way which damages your business reputation on our system, then we will remove the bad feedback.
