Note: Please bear in mind that this is a discussion board, not a place to advertise childcare vacancies or recruit childminders/nannies etc. We don't mind the odd mumsnet regular mentioning that they're looking for a job/mindee (although you're probably better off in MN Local) but repeated job "ads" and posts from nanny/babysitting agencies aren't fair to people who are paying for small business ads. Do feel free to report any you see. Thanks, MNHQ.

Hi, move to Bucks at last week and started little one in crèche - am not entirely happy with it so looking for other childcare options; where do I start? Help! (Near Burnham)

Depends what childcare you want. Buckinghamshire County Council: Family Information Service is a place to start, they can send you a list of Registered Childminders, Nurseries and pre-schools.

How old your child is and what hours of care you need may be a factor as to what options you have for childcare. A crèche typically only does a couple of hours and is often at the same place at which you are, such as at a leisure centre.

Childcare listings websites like Childcare.co.uk (modify the postcode field to fit with your exact location) may enable you to contact providers - you need a paid subscription to send messages.

Given you are already using a childcare facility, do have a chat with them about things you are not happy with as they may be able to change things, or put you mind at ease.
