Safety and trust are at the heart of Inloco communities and the safety of children and childcarers is of utmost importance to us. It’s essential that families and carers know how Inloco works to protect them, we are a community that connects families and childcarers, not an agency.
Only people you trust
We built Inloco to work differently to an agency or childcare directory service. As parents we prefer to ask friends and the childcarers we already know and trust for recommendations. This is how Inloco works, and we believe that by helping you connect with the friends, families and childcarers of your choice you’ll be able to build a wider, stronger and more dependable community of childcare support.
Every connection rated
Inloco connects busy families with a circle of trusted friends and childcarers and puts parents in control, giving families choices and childcare options. Ratings, reviews, recommendations and mutual connections are available to help parents find the right childcarers to support their family. Inloco doesn’t conduct any vetting, checks or interviews so parents should always conduct the necessary checks to ensure they are 100% happy with their chosen childcarer.
Tips to build a trusted childcare circle
Leave your own reviews and ratings
Build up trusted relationships by sharing your experiences with others.
Ask friends and family
Find out who your friends and family use for childcare, and who they recommend.
Check reviews and recommendations
Fill your Inloco circle with people you trust, and who come highly rated by the people you know best.
Ask your usual childcarers
Have they joined us yet? And do they recommend anyone if they’re not available?
Give childcarers what they need to know
When your booking begins, make sure you leave your contact and emergency numbers, as well as information about children’s health, medication and allergies.
