Guilt-free and flexible child care

Feb 17 2021

When parents are expected to homeschool, work and carry their families through a pandemic, undoubtedly, emotions run high. Corinna Bordoli and I (Léa Henry) are on a mission to reduce that burden through guilt-free and flexible child care arrangements while supporting the creative sector which is among the most affected in the current crisis.

As many artistic projects have been halted during this time, CocoRio are doing their part to provide job opportunities in the sector. They vet, train and match amazing creatives with families to provide a smarter child care solution. “Creative sitters” as they call them, perform child care duties and share their craft with the children they care for. Think your favourite creative class, tailored to your child and in your living room (or online), your choice.

From the early work of British Psychologist, John Bowlby to modern neuroscientists such as Alison Gopnik we learn that creating a safe haven, where children can test their emotional boundaries supported by warm, sensitive and reassuring adults is crucial for children to develop healthy attachments and a powerful predictor of a child’s later social and emotional outcome. The theories of attachment have resulted in nursery practice which include the settling in procedure, the role of the “key person”, and the importance of transition.
