SureSitter partners with Clarity Locums to help frontline workers find Childcare
SureSitter has partnered with Clarity Locums to help frontline healthcare workers find childcare during the COVID-19 pandemic.
In the midst of the coronavirus outbreak here in Ireland over the last few weeks, the measures have created a childcare crisis for parents. The issue has caused significant problems for frontline healthcare workers and other essential workers. Creches, schools and other childcare facilities have closed and this has created a need for our frontline workers to find alternative childcare.
Frontline workers struggle to find childcare
Clarity and SureSitter are aware of the pressure this is putting on families. We have delighted to partner with together to try and help in some small way. We are waiving all charges for parents allowing families to connect with childminders and babysitters for the next month.
Advice when choosing a childminder
When connecting with a childminder for the first time, consider doing so by video call to see if they are a good fit. You can then arrange a meeting in person.
To support social distancing and minimise risk it is recommended that childminders:
- Do not work if they have symptoms
- Do not care for children who have symptoms
- Consider prioritising children of essential frontline workers.
For further tips and advice regarding finding the right childminder can be found in our blog – questions to ask when interviewing a childminder.
