ok.... i am considering buying 1 month subscription. Have had 4 parents as me as a "favourite" but no message...being a parent myself... i would prob not buy gold membership...but thinking from the position i am in now as the childcare service....so i take out the subscription so i can message these parents?

Has anyone benefited from this?

i only ask as well...we are struggling financially at the moment as i am still out of work until 2nd jan (signed up full timer and school holiday contract - yey)

any advice pros and cons would be welcome.... i have the page open and card in hand at the ready lol

Both my current 1 yr olds were from Childcare.co.uk after I messaged them. One of them wasn't even looking in my area but the areas they were looking in were not too far away so I thought it wouldn't hurt. I would def recommend it and then you can also do your own search and message all those who may be possible for you. Worth the money in my opinion.

Don't forget to visit the 'childminder plus' section now you are a gold member and have a look through some of the information guides :D

I have gold. It is great. You can send parents messages. I find it so much better than my council site. Love the extra pages.
