Employee’s problems with childcare can adversely affect job performances within your company by increasing non-attendance. Companies are discovering that offering working parents an employer-assisted childcare solution is a valuable way to attract and keep hold of quality workers.

Organisations operating family friendly policies, such as providing help with childcare see a reduction in costs and increase in productivity. We offer tailored childcare solutions for our corporate partners to make available to their employees as part of a family-friendly benefits package.

We work with businesses of all sizes in a number of ways and always tailor the programme to suit. Here are just some of the ways Abracadabra Corporate Childcare Services can work with you by offering your employees the following childcare options:

  • Emergency or last-minute childcare needs (during working hours or outside normal working hours if needed)
    We are here to take the stress away from families needing to get to work when their children are unable to attend pre-school, school or the nanny has called in sick. We can also assist with childcare requirements if your employees are needed to work outside of their normal working hours and fall short of assistance.
  • Maternity Leave or Return to Work Incentives
    Providing childcare assistance to valued employees whilst they are on maternity leave or manage a support programme to new parents returning to work.
