Local childcare for local families
Dulwich Childcare was set up by a local mum who struggled to find experienced, local childcarers to use for babysitting and to cover more sporadic and last minute needs.
“My daughter goes to a local childminder 3 days a week, but there are additional times when I need her to be looked after, often at the last minute. My childminder cannot look after her beyond the 3 days and I don’t have any family in the area, so the idea to develop a local service for parents like me developed from there!
Why should there be a difference in the quality of childcare you receive from your babysitter or during the odd days when you need help, compared to a childminder, nursery or school? I went to great lengths to find the right childminder for my daughter, gathering references, checking her credentials and so on.
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.”
