Local childcare for local families

Dulwich Childcare was set up by a local mum who struggled to find experienced, local childcarers to look after her children

“I wanted to set up a local childcare agency that truly reflected the realities of family life.  Sometimes you can plan things (but  more often you can’t!) and the unexpected can and usually will happen!   Spinning all the plates is stressful, so my aim is to provide parents with help in finding childcare that supports their individual needs (and hopefully take a little of the stress away!)

There should not be a difference in the quality of childcare you receive on a short term basis or during the odd days when you need help versus longer term childcare arrangements. I believe parents like me, want the assurance that the same qualified and experienced childcarers are looking after their children in all situations, regardless of whether it’s a long or short term arrangement. We shouldn’t settle for anything less.”
