We provide 24 hour infant and toddler care, 365 days in a year for children aged 0- 48 months of age. This service is available for companies that do not have the space for an onsite day care facility. We recommend a back- up child care solution that is off the company premises.
As professionals and practitioners in the children’s sector, we believe that three months is not sufficient time for a child and mother to bond. The Cradle created an intervention to set up affordable, accessible Child Care Centers to allow parents especially mothers continue with the recommended breastfeeding.
Parents (mothers and fathers) are able to work assured of the security and safety of their children thus providing a solution to corporate employee and child care problems.
The Cradle provides corporate organisations with three packages;
On Site: For this package, the childcare centre is setup at the company or office premises. This package allows parents more access and proximity to their children while in the care of the Cradle professional caretakers. For this package, the organization is provided with two options;
Company owned - Here the organisation with the technical expertise of The Cradle, sets up and establishes the centre at the office premises; The Cradle manages it on their behalf
Cradle Owned - The Cradle sets up, establishes and runs the centre on behalf of the organisation.
Near Site: For this package, the organisation subscribes to a childcare centre nearest to the organisations premises. The centre is shared with other organisations employee’s children.
Offsite: For this package, the childcare centre is setup in residential areas including Bugolobi, Ntinda/Naguru, Kireka, Makindye, Mengo/Old Kampala, Munyonyo, Muyenga and Kiira. Here the parents have limited access and proximity to their children. The package provides two options;
Resident Cradle Homes - These are the various childcare centres owned and set up by the Cradle. These centres are run 24 hours a day to cater to the different needs of the customers.
Family Cradle Homes - Due to increased cases of child abuse by domestic workers to children, mothers that found it difficult to focus on their jobs and opted to leave their jobs completely to raise their children sometimes fail to join the workforce again, so The Cradle provides these mothers with a business model that allows them to run a home childcare business which organisations staff can subscribe to. The businesses are licensed and trained by The Cradle.
