I wonder if it is to stop people posting adverts for jobs. There seems to have been a few lately. But agree support page for nannies and child minders was nice but maybe we need to go to forums on nanny sites now.
Childcare Options is a rubbish choice though. Childcare queries or Childcare questions would be better. Or nannies/childminders (the au pair people would still find their way here).
Are nurseries and nanny-shares not childcare options ?
If nanny-share and nurseries get their own topic then maybe there should be three topics 'Nannies', 'Childminders', 'Au Pairs'. That might actually help people understand that they are three separate jobs and not interchangeable terms.
