There are several ways to advertise and promote your childminding service. Here we recommend what you can do to elevate your business.

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 thousands of visitors to our website. Parents contact our office regularly looking for childminders.

Many parents use the internet and social media as their first port of call when searching for a childminder. That’s why it is a good idea to advertise on our website.

Remember to put your ad on your social media pages (Facebook, Instagram, Twitter & LinkedIn). Ask your contacts to share with their network too.

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.
