The Value of In A Pinch School & Daycare Back Up Care

Parents are relying upon daycare centres now more than ever to look after their children, according to Statistics Canada. In fact, between 1994 and 2001, the proportion of children between the ages of six months to five years increased from 42% to 53%. That number continues to climb. This rise in rates occurred for children from almost all backgrounds, regardless of geographic location, household income, family structure, parental employment status or parental place of birth.

On average children spend approximately thirty hours per week in their care arrangements. With more than half of Canadian children living in two-income families, parents are often in conflict about what to do when their child is sick or their daycare or school is closed. Many do not have alternative child care options readily available to them on a moments notice.

So what can be done to ensure that your school community has options when the daily routine is interrupted? The answer is simple. With In a Pinch's School & Daycare service, parents will have access to qualified, dependable babysitters who can be at the home on short notice.
