  •  Our surveys indicate that 78% of Canadian parents use Google search to find childcare services.
  • 32% of parents spend between 2 and 4 weeks to find a childcare provider that meets their expectations, and 33% spend more than 4 weeks.
  • We interviewed many parents prior to starting Childcare.Center to learn about the challenges they faced when looking for childcare providers information. Here are some highlights:
        • I couldn’t find their location
        • They don’t list every centre
        • A lot of the childcare centres had bad ratings listed on the internet
        • Sometimes there is no information just a phone number
        • Often they did not list their prices until after you had a tour of the facility
        • Lack of listings online
        • I had to personally visit childcare centres to see the actual quality of the centres
        • Many of the childcare centres had very bad reviews so i was stress out finding my kids a child care centre
        • The location information is not accurate
        • Finding in-depth info about educational aspect’s
        • It’s hard to decide just looking at online as reviews are less and you can’t check their ratings and facilities details
        • Getting replies from the centres via email or phone when i wanted more details and the images on their website do not really match the reality when visiting the sites
        • Very little transparency with regards to programming and pricing.
        • Not enough information, not clear.
        • Not too much information about the hygiene practices of the centre.
        • The challenges that i faced is there are too many information of type of childcare, trying to find the right fit for the child and close to my work
        • Some information online are not accurate or not true
        • Not all information was displayed on websites

In conclusion, our research showed that Canadian parents face numerous challenges when searching for childcare providers online. With 78% of parents using Google search, many face difficulties finding accurate information such as location, in-depth educational information, and clear information on programming and pricing.

Our insights from Surveys and statistics Canada

  • According to a recent Stat Canada research, trustworthiness is the second most important factor for parents when choosing a childcare provider, after location.

  • On the other hand, our own research indicates that 78% of Canadian parents use Google search to find childcare services and 32% of parents spend between 2 and 4 weeks, while 33% spend more than 4 weeks to find a childcare provider that meets their expectations.

  • These findings highlight the real challenge for parents to access accurate and comprehensive information about daycare and childcare providers.

  • Most parents rely on Google and social media to research daycares, but struggle to find important information such as programs, learning frameworks, location, and contact details.

  • This information gap is further compounded by a lack of transparency with regards to programming and pricing, not enough information about hygiene practices, and inaccurate information available online.

  • In light of these challenges, we developed a platform at Childcare.Center, where childcare providers can share detailed information about their programs, services, and photos with parents. Our goal is to create a trusted environment where parents can make informed decisions about the right childcare provider for their needs, based on accurate and comprehensive information.
