But how do I know this is quality care? I can’t trust my child to just anyone!

Trusting someone else to mind your child is a massive decision. For many of us it’s a great concern and we worry about the quality of care and safety of the centre our child might be left at.

It often arises that a parent may need care for an occasional period. This could be a single day, a few weeks or even months. Whatever the time period you require Eenie Meenie can assist you in meeting this requirement. Eenie Meenie can show you what centres near you have vacancies be it for a day, week, month or year. So whether you’ve a terrible flu and just need a few days care starting tomorrow, have a work contract for a month or two or feel your child is ready to have a term of care before school starts (or any other reason of course!) click through to Eenie Meenie and see what suits your needs right now!

Childcare seems really expensive – can I even afford to go back to work?

It’s a fact, childcare can be really costly. Centres can range up to $50 difference in fees for one day! For many people returning to work can be unviable if childcare fees are chewing up most of their income. One of Eenie Meenie best strengths is that you can compare on not just location, facilities and centre size but also price. And when you are returning to work price can be really important. We totally get that! $20 a day saved for full time care is over $5000 a year. That’s a family holiday worth of savings!

They will be rolling out nationwide so this outstanding service will be available to all mums and dads in the future. There is no extra cost incurred in using EenieMeenie to secure your child’s care. You simply pay a 20% deposit to hold the placement and pay the balance to the centre and the peace of mind is… priceless!
