But before you read through, we would like you to know that we select our childminders carefully. Our childminders are trained and have a solid background in work with children.

What you need to do is:

1a) Choose which childminder is available on the date you prefer.

1b) b) Choose when your preferred childminder is available.

2) Book the childminder. You will receive an email confirming that the booking will be received and will then be contacted by the childminder to confirm the booking.

Our childminder will ask for a preliminary visit which will serve as a platform for you and your child to meet with the childminder. During this session, the childminder will make a few inquiries about your child’s routine, likes and dislikes, and any other information that will be useful for the childminder whilst with your child.

As you are out, the childminder will keep you updated with the progress of the session by sending three messages throughout the session. In this way you can enjoy your outing knowing that your child is in safe hands.

All our childminders are vetted and they are psychology students. Furthermore, they are supervised by child psychologists.

have to say about our childminders


  • I am so grateful to Ms. Nadine’s help throughout the summer holidays. She provided great tutoring for my son - very professional and approachable, excellent planning and feedback - giving me peace of mind that my son is working on those academic areas which he could benefit from consolidating during the summer recess. Well done to such an amazing service!
  • I just wanted to let you know that I was very pleased with how Christina and David did with my kids. They were very nice and both times my kids had a good time. I know we will be booking again with you.
  • Julia was fantastic! Kids woke up this morning asking if she could come again! I will definitely ask for her next time I need a childminder. I recommend your service to my friends. Well done for being so efficient and organised.

    3What is the Specialised Childminding Service?
    Childminders by Willingness offer a more specialised childminding service by childminders who were trained in dealing with children with particular needs. These childminders are able to support and educate children with Autism and other disabilities.

    At Willingness, we know the struggle that some parents might be going through and we want to provide a service where we can support these families.

    Contact us for more information. Fee for specialised service is €13 / hr.
    4What if I decide to cancel at the last minute?
    In case of cancellation, you need only contact the number +356 7929 1817 as presented on the website. However, there is a cancellation policy which states that cancellations within 48 hours of the service may not be reimbursed.
    5How safe is it to place my child with the childminder?
    All childminders have been screened through a meticulous process of selection. Following that, all childminders have undergone training to place them more strongly in work with children. Furthermore, all childminders are regularly supervised and a system of oncall serves to monitor the service and to offer support on the day.
    6Why do you send a maximum of three messages?
    We can send more. However the intention of this service is to provide parents with a space in time where they can go out. We believe that your focus will inevitably be on the children at home should many messages be sent, and this would ultimately defeat the purpose. However, do not worry, the childminder will be asking for an ICE (in case of emergency) number which will be used in times of trouble.
    7Can I pre-book a number of sessions in advance?
    You may book as many sessions as you feel you need. Just follow the same process on the website. Bookings with the childminder are not encouraged as this may create issues with the management of schedules.
    8Do I need to provide activity resources (toys)?
    The childminders will be getting their resources, however it is encouraged if you could leave familiar toys and resources for your child.
    9Can I meet the childminder before making a final decision?
    Actually we encourage you to meet with the childminder before. In fact, before the actual session, the childminder will be requesting a meeting with you to discuss a few items before the day. Please use this opportunity to vet the childminder and develop a connection with the person yourself.
    10What happens in case of emergency?
    The childminder will be asking you for an ICE (in case of Emergency) number to use in situations of emergency. The childminder will also be updating the supervisor on call from Willingness, who will be providing ongoing support until you arrive.
    11What age ranges do the childminders cater for?
    The childminders have received training and are competent to cater for the needs of children of all ages. However, each childminder provides areas of preference on the website. Go through each bio and see whom of the childminders fits your needs.
