Welcome to our village.

As the name suggests, we believe it takes a village to raise a child. As busy working parents, that’s exactly what we’ve created: your one-stop shop for finding and comparing childcare options. 

There’s no denying it: becoming a parent is life changing. And often, just when you’ve got your head around what it means to provide for your little person, you’re faced with yet another tough decision: who to trust your child to while you’re at work or studying.

We understand how daunting this can be, which is why we’ve created a platform which allows you to search for, and compare, childcare options in your area. Thanks to a filtered search system, Takes a Village puts you in control of finding the most suitable care for your child – and your family. Simply enter the childcare criteria that is most important to you, and choose from the shortlist provided. 

Finding childcare has never been easier. So, sit back, relax and take a look around. It really does take a village to raise a child, and we’re so happy you’re part of ours.

Three easy steps


Type in your chosen address (e.g. home or work) and we will show you the childcare options prioritised by distance.


Choose your filter criteria; the results you can see will filter and only show the options that meet that criteria.

Not quite enough options? Keep extending the search to pull more options from the database.
