When to Use Drop-In Daycare


Drop-in daycare is a useful tool whenever you find yourself needing impromptu childcare. A few reasons why parents and guardians use drop-in daycare include:

  • The babysitter or nanny canceled: If you’ve got plans for a babysitter or nanny to watch your children and they cancel at the last minute, due to illness or an emergency, you might feel like you’re in a tight spot. Thankfully, with drop-in daycare, there’s no problem. Just drop your kids off and breathe a sigh of relief knowing that your kids are in good hands and your plans are no longer ruined!
  • You work an irregular schedule: Not everyone has a job with set hours. If you’re likely to be called into work suddenly on a day off, or if your work hours are sporadic, drop-in daycare is a convenient option for procuring safe, reliable childcare in a quick time frame.
  • You need a break: We’ve all been there. There’s no shame in just needing a day – or a couple of hours – to yourself. If you can’t get a hold of a reliable babysitter, you may feel more comfortable dropping off your child at daycare so you can take a breather and refocus.

Drop-In Daycare During the Pandemic

The pandemic has shifted our entire world – and with it, our schedules. For many families, it’s no longer a simple matter of dropping your child off at daycare in the morning. Our work schedules – or our jobs themselves – have changed, and with that change comes new needs. Drop-in daycare eliminates the stress of needing to find on-the-spot childcare during these turbulent times. Kid’s Corner is here to help you and your family – whatever your schedules and needs are.
