Advertising your Childminding Service
There are several ways to advertise your service.
Childminding Ireland Website
You can advertise your childminding service on our website and/or with our office. It’s a great way to promote your business as we have parents contacting us regularly looking for a childminder in their area.
Word of mouth
Word of mouth is a powerful form of advertising for a childminder. Tell your family and friends what you are planning. Spread the word at your local parent & toddler groups and schools.
Prepare leaflets to put up in local health clinics, supermarkets, petrol stations, local shops, and take-aways. The more colourful they are the better!
Have tear off slips with your name and number to make it easy for parents to remember your details.
Make sure to include the following information:
- Area & Times/Days available. Don’t give out your full address.
- Ages, preschools and schools served if applicable.
- Mobile/landline, email.
- Your professional status: Insured/Garda Vetted/Notified to the CCC/Registered with Tusla/ Member of Childminding Ireland etc.
- References available.
Internet and Social Media
Many parents search the internet and social media first, especially if they are not from the area.
Remember to put your ad on your facebook page. And if you notify your local Childcare Committee, you service will appear on their website.
