Welcome to Childcare Provided New Zealand!
We’re so excited to share our new directory with the public. It’s been a work in progress but we’re finally there! Childcare Provided was born locally in the beautiful Coolum Beach, Sunshine Coast. Our owners noticed a gap in finding reliable, free and easy information on care for your children. As a husband and wife team they brought about Childcare Provided with help from others in the industry to ensure we provide a great service. Anne-Marie is a Family Daycare educator and Cheyne is a Web Design and SEO specialist, so together the industry is one they’re passionate about and have the perfect balance of knowledge to create Childcare Provided.
Some of the frustrating things we noticed when finding care and, for centres and educators to advertise care, was that the current situation was hard to navigate, expensive, unreliable and inconsistent. We noticed parents found it frustrating contacting care options that said they had vacancies but didn’t anymore, or were charged to sign up to enquire, and we don’t believe it needs to be that hard! The idea behind CP is simplicity. Easy to find, easy to sign up, easy to navigate, nothing overwhelming.
When parents use Childcare Provided, all you need is the map. If your location is set you’ll be automatically set to your location, where you can explore your options. Or you can use specific search categories or terms to refine it further. We aim to have every care option available AUSTRALIA WIDE! So you know all your options are right there in front of you. When you click on an option in the map, you’ll be directed to their CP Webpage outlining information they’d like you to know.
For Educators and Centres, you can choose from a FREE or $10/pm premium listing. It’s essential to sign up to at least a free listing, so you can add your service to our database to retain authenticity and advertising or claim your location. With this option you can set your name, location, address, email and website. With the Premium listing, you can also add images, galleries, staff info, philosophies, reviews, vacancies, social media links, website, contact form, open hours, associations, pricing and age groups. This listing provides in depth information meaning you’ll add even more authenticity and prove a great option for parents. You can edit this information at any time.
AND with our Search Engine Optimisation knowledge, our aim is when people search for you, you’ll come up on our directory meaning more traffic, more people seeing you and more enquiries! Signing up to Childcare Provided is essentially signing up to a maximum $10p/m plan for a website and extensive advertising in one. What’s not to lose?
We hope this has answered some questions about who we are, where we come from and our plans for the future. We’re always striving for bigger and better so if you ever have any questions or queries, feel free to contact us! We’re always here to help.
Looking forward to seeing you on Childcare Provided!
