When I started making Food grade art materials, I had no family support for my children and because I had just started, I couldn’t afford to start my children at Nursery. Eventually I slowly did this and am now looking to increase production with extra staff.
Wouldn’t it be lovely to offer a free on-site crèche to those wanting to work but have no childcare?
Only 2 or 3 mums/dads are needed to make this a reality. The onsite creche would be for those working onsite at Tiny Land. It would have plenty of outdoor play and bushcraft as well as life skills and wooden educational toys. Shifts at Tiny Land would be limited to 4 hours (4 hours of childcare are exempt from OFSTED registration) and not required daily. The creche would be for the sole purpose of those working and not open to the general public.
The 'community crèche at work' project requires:
1 x Large Prefab/wooden structure with double glazed windows for £5,500
1 x Professional Blender for additional staff to create paint
1 x deposit for location @ £374
All other equipment and decorating/set up will look to be sourced from donations but some cash for this would be needed @ £126
The work at Tiny Land would be creative, and slightly scientific - similar to baking, candle or soap making!
