A good childcare centre is not just a place to leave your toddler as you go to work, but one that can help foster the development of your child, help them develop better, and help prepare any challenges that lie ahead by instilling the right values and principles. This is why you should only settle for a childcare centre with a good reputation, licensed caregivers, and overall, trust your instinct as a parent.
We have the trickiest time finding childcare for our baby, as we both do shift work. My husband is a police officer, and I'm a doctor, so we always seem to struggling to get someone to look after our son when we are at work at nights. We want to know that he is being loved and cared for even when we are not there. Luckily we have a great childcare service that is flexible, and sometimes we can leave our son longer if we need to work later or if emergencies arise. This blog is about juggling childcare for shift workers.
