How it Works
It takes a village to raise a child. Childcare collectives help parents share the responsibility of childcare while reducing the costs of having a dedicated baby sitter.
1) Establish a Group
Reach out to friends and neighbors in person or through the internet to establish a group of enthusiastic parents.
2) Find a Meeting Locations
This could be someone’s house or a local community center.
3) Build Your Routine
Create a schedule that establishes which adult is responsible when and where for the children.
4) Create a set of Rules
In order to keep the collective organized and fair it is good to create a set of rules for all families to follow.
4) Finalize Your Schedule
Create a schedule for the collective with different activities and times of the day for parents to drop-off, help, and pick-up their kids.
Childcare Collectives offer a great opportunity for both children and adults to make new friends.
