Your business can use Parental Choice’s employer childcare solution to source childcare for your employees as part of their benefits package.
If you employ working parents helping them with their childcare provision will free them up to be more productive and more committed employees, therefore reducing your staff losses and improving retention. More than that, it shows you understand and are a caring employer.
As part of our all-encompassing corporate childcare service, our in-house team of independent experts provide impartial advice to working parents on the best childcare options available to them.
We tailor all our searches to each employee. We will advertise and search for the position based on the employee’s specific requirements. Only those nannies or housekeepers with relevant experience, DBS registration, and a first-aid certificate will be put forward for an interview with the employee and their family.
There are strict rules around employing au pairs. However, an au pair can be the perfect solution for families with school-aged children.
Parental Choice is registered to conduct DBS checks – we do not rely on external suppliers for this critical vetting stage.
We can then run the payroll and set up the legal side of becoming a childcare employer, on behalf of the family.
For your business: Parental Choice can create a package that includes a discount of up to £275 per nanny search or housekeeper search requested by your employees.
Parental Choice will search for childminders in and around the chosen location of your employee’s family. We then create a final report tailored to these requirements and pass on the contact details of our recommended providers.
We only recommend providers with a ‘good’ or ‘outstanding’ Ofsted rating. You can find a great example of a comprehensive childminder search here.

Following an in-depth needs analysis, Parental Choice research the specified geographical area for suitable workplace nurseries taking into consideration the criteria set around the type of care, hours, distance, and daily routine/activities.
We provide the research to the employee, along with a summary of each facility with contact details. With the comprehensive report, your employee will be able to contact their shortlisted nurseries to arrange visits.
We also provide the additional details of any other nurseries the employee can consider, which do not meet the criteria exactly.
