This depends on you and how you want to distribute the benefit. Some clients like to set up maximum levels per employee and some clients opt for a need-based approach. We can help you work out what works best for your organisation. The beauty of the credits system is that it is very flexible.  

What if our headcount increases / decreases?

No problem. Our monthly usage levels can capture this and we can reprice...

No problem. Our monthly usage levels can capture this and we can reprice accordingly. You can always “top-up” with more credits if there are, for example, more babies born in your company in a given year.  

What if usage levels are lower than expected during certain periods?

There is always some seasonality in childcare, and our flexible model allows for credit roll-over. As with any benefit, it is important to raise awareness, which we help you with at the launch and throughout, as well as to monitor on an ongoing basis the needs of your working parents. We work with you to make sure you’re offering precisely what your employees need. 

Do we have to use your app / phone numbers / email?

We work with you to establish the best setup for your company. Normally, your employees will get a dedicated email address and a webpage. If you have a channel that works better for you, e.g. Slack, just shout and we will include this as part of onboarding. It may require an extra set up cost.

What types of childcare are included?

All types - nurseries, childminders and nannies.

With our smart matching, based on psychology of relationships, we match nannies with families based on both objective and subjective criteria such as parenting style and family values. Importantly, parents always have a chance to see profiles of shortlisted nannies, and speak with them, or even meet them before they are placed with them, either on a permanent or emergency basis. 

How do you vet and select nannies?

We have a rigorous five-step vetting process in place, including an interview, speaking with at least two previous employers, and reviewing the status of their criminal check, first aid, and right to work. All this information is transparently shared with parents during the matching process.

Do you provide backup childcare in nurseries or just with nannies?

We provide back up childcare with nannies. We find that nursery backup childcare doesn’t provide a good backup option to parents due to the requirement to settle children in (which can take hours if not days) and additional time that is lost on commuting between home and nursery in an already stressful and time pressed context.
