The pieces of the jigsaw for working parents can often seem like an impossible puzzle that just won’t fit together.
Firstly, there’s meeting the cost of childcare. This is on the rise from high demand, now that more parents are in paid work and for longer hours. There are also higher costs that come with the (awesome) professionalisation of the great people who work in childcare.
Secondly, it can be difficult to find childcare that fits around the demands of the work you do.
According to Statistics New Zealand, 38% of us find the biggest problem with childcare is that it is not available when we need it. This shows the scale of the problem when it impacts more than 1 in 3 of us.
My Kids Village is designed to help you fit this jigsaw together by making all your childcare options visible to you, depending on the needs of your family. We are on a mission to keep growing with that firmly in our minds. You can help by telling other parents about us and making sure the childcare providers that your children have loved pick up their free profile with us.
We now have more than 200 providers profiling with us, so make sure you check out the newest providers in your area. One of them might just be the missing piece of the puzzle that you’ve been looking for!
