Child care at Barnardos centres
Barnardos offers child care within strict government-operating guidelines to families in areas of social disadvantage.
Safe and reliable child care can help to avert cases of child abuse and neglect by reducing social isolation and stresses within a family.
Child care can be used by children whose parents work, study, are seeking employment, have a low income or where the child has special needs.
Barnardos Child Care aims to:
- provide more equitable opportunities for child care to disadvantaged families
- foster an environment of safety, security and respect
- promote an educational philosophy without bias
