As a growing number of parents juggle shift work while trying to raise a family, the need for children to be placed in childcare for entire weekends is rising.
A new 24/7 daycare centre has recently been opened in Brisbane to offer those parents some relief. It provides families with a fantastic, reliable service, when work calls.
Statistics show 1.4 million aussie parents do shift work. So the need for better childcare options is definitely sky rocketing.
Parents can collect their children any time day or night.
The response to this news has been very mixed with many parents understanding the neccesity and appreciating the support. While others argue people should not have children if they can’t afford them.
Other comments included,
“Very sad that in these times generally both parents have to work to get by. You used to be able to have one parent work and one raise the children and still be able to live a modest life. Now both work and the children miss out just to have the basics.”
“It’s great.. for working people but some will abuse it to have weekends to go out.”
“The world has become an impossible place to live and instead of fixing it we create things like this. How about better working conditions more jobs? Let family’s be family’s.”
” What effect does this type of care have on the development of a child? So many questions that go unanswered.”
Is this service something you would use?
