Looking for childcare? Wondering what your options are? Then you’ve come to the right place. We explore the pros and cons of each kind of childcare to help you make the right choice to suit your family.



If you’re pregnant it may well be that the last thing on your mind is childcare. There’s the small matter of getting over the birth and the ensuing sleepless nights first after all!

But it’s important to remember that the very best childcare is in high demand and some nurseries even ask you to register before your baby is born – it’s really true!

Even if you do leave it until later on, your maternity leave will probably last between 9 months to a year and if you’re planning to get back to work then looking for reliable childcare that fits your circumstances has to be high on the priority list.

Here at MumsWork we’ve tried nearly every kind of childcare option available so we’ve got plenty of experience to pass on. We run through the pros and cons of each type – and help you to think through the alternatives so that you can find the very best childcare to suit your circumstances. You can then head over to our directory to find local listings of childcare providers to start your search with.
