For new families looking for their forever home, finding accommodations for children is just another aspect of moving to take into consideration. REA Group is acknowledging this with a partnership with Toddle, a leading childcare search platform.
REA Group Chief Consumer Product Officer, Val Brown commented:
“12 million Australians turn to realestate.com.au each month to help them with their property journey and it was a natural fit for Australia’s #1 address in property to partner with the country’s leading childcare search provider. We’re also pleased Toddle is aligned with realestate.com.au when it comes to delivering quality content and an exceptional user experience.”
Now, those searching for a new home through realestate.com.au can see the distance between a property listing and childcare centers in the area.
“Our partnership with Toddle will now provide consumers with access to unprecedented childcare center availability data.”
Toddle has had a busy year. It had recently acquired Care for Kids, another search platform for childcare services in Australia. The two platforms have a combined 3.5 million visits a year from families looking for childcare accommodations.
Toddle CEO, Arthur Charlaftis commented:
“The acquisition of Care for Kids made us the biggest player in the childcare search market with more comprehensive and unbiased data than any other platform. We know most parents choose childcare close to their home and the ability for families to easily view which center is close to properties on realestate.com.au will assist in narrowing down the search for a new home.”
