Last week we spoke to NHS England who told us that they have many working parents, including doctors and nurses, are struggling to find holiday childcare over the summer. This is because while schools are closed, many school holiday schemes are not operating in 2020 due to complex and delayed guidance. So they need your support and help as a registered provider more than ever.
This week the NHS will be actively promoting SearchChildcare again, as well as highlighting the benefits of using a local childminder. So if you're a registered early years provider, have vacancies in your setting and are able to offer holiday childcare, please do make sure that your SearchChildcare profile is up to date.
The directory is completely free of charge to use for both provider and parents and updating your profile is quick and easy to do.
If you need any advice on how to use SearchChildcare, how to update your profile or tips on how to stand out from the crowd, take a look at our guides for providers here.
