Seeking Extended search plugin similar to dating site, but for childcare

Hi there
I am about to build a site for childcare providers. Client would like to have a search feature that is similar to a dating site per se, but not for dating.
She wants parents to search by:
* search by requirements (weekend care) or (Tuesday vacancy) or (suburb)etc
* search by distance from them (within 5km, 10km, 20km from {Postcode} – like ebay)
* keep it all empty and see all childcare providers

Is there a plugin that can do this?

    Hello Scott Green

    Hope you are well today and thanks for asking us. :slight_smile:

    Would you please clear some confusion I am facing first ?

    * search by requirements (weekend care) or (Tuesday vacancy) or (suburb)etc
    * search by distance from them (within 5km, 10km, 20km from {Postcode} – like ebay)

    How are you storing these data in your database, as post meta or there is different mechanism used for this ?

    If you are storing this as post meta then it would be very quick custom job which I can do for you, but if you are storing these with some other mechanism I will have to think about that. :slight_smile:

    Looking forward to hearing back from you.
    Cheers,
    Milan

    The client wants to be able to search the members (child care providers) for different stats
    Location
    Distance from location
    Dates available
    Food provided
    Nappies provided etc
    (about 12 different search queries)

    Not sure about where its being stored, but open to options.

    Can be a combination or only 1
