Proxy Parent

A proxy parent is a childcare professional who provides temporary wrap around care for your child(ren) and can work for 24 hours up to several weeks, providing a fun and educational, age appropriate time for the children. They will ‘stand in your shoes’ and continue the children’s routine as if you were home and the children will still be able to attend school, trips and activities. A proxy parent provides as little disruption as possible for the children enabling them to still sleep in their own beds, go to school, play with their friends and have one carer providing them love and attention.

Many families employ proxy parent to enable them to go away on business or to have a romantic break away together without the children. Proxy parents are also available to care for your children whilst you are in hospital having another baby or an operation.
