Reverse Curfew Childcare Cards

Child care costs have been getting higher, Reverse Curfew child care can reduce the cost of child care to a fraction of the current average of £180 a month (for a child minder once a week for 10 hours) to less than £10 a month whilst freeing up your time and connecting you to your community too. 

All you need is one Saturday free out of every four, a Reverse Curfew Card and a love of children to get involved and together reduce your child care costs by sharing the responsibility of caring for your children on a rota basis, if you have children aged 13 and older then your house would be considered a guest house for the day for the 4 family's children in case of bad weather for example.

There are several benefits to this system:

1 Gives parents 10% more time

By leveraging the power of community safely you can save a lot of time. Let's say you work 9-5 and sleep for 8 hours per night, that means over the course of 4 weeks you have about 288 hours free time most of which is taken up by looking after your children leaving little or no time for what you want to do. 

By engaging Reverse Curfew you can get back 30 hours a month for each day you decide to organise on this basis assuming you decide on a 10 hour reverse curfew that's a more than 10% increase in free time.

2 Increases productivity 20% for employers

Lets say there are five employees all working 9-5pm each of them with a child around the same age who finishes school at 3pm and right now all of them leave work early to attend to this responsibility.

If they were to choose to engage Reverse Curfew each parent will then save at least two hours every day they don't have to pick up their child from school, so that's four times a week, though each parent will still have one day where they will have to pick up the other people's children from school and look after them until the agreed time. This is an increase of 8 hours productive time plus travel time, in a 40 hour work week that's an increase in productive time of 20% per person who engages reverse curfew. 

3 Saves Parents 94% on their childcare

By calling on your community of parents you can save money pooling resources reducing your childcare costs to £10 a month from an average of £180 a month assuming weekly childcare requirements of 10 hours. This is a saving of 94%.

4 Discourages time out at night.

As a parent you don't want your child out at night. Reverse Curfew ensures that you can get the extra time you need, without compromising on the safety of your child.

5 Encourages productivity

When you're out of the house in a social setting many people find it easier to get work done, make connections or just have more fun, with the connectivity that Reverse Curfew provides.

6 Increases community cohesion.

By connecting you with other parents who are like minded and have their children's best interests at heart and who whilst they need some extra time to themselves love caring for children. Your social network expands too.

7 Encourages collaboration

We all know that some of the best ideas come to us when we collaborate. By internalizing this habit from a young age your child is more likely to have a bright future.

8 Encourages social contact

Socialising is a key part of your child's development by pushing them to do so in a safe way you are giving them a better chance of a bright future as they will be better able to speak for themselves, make friends and maintain relationships in the future.

With all of these benefits, Reverse Curfew is sure to make your life that bit easier giving you more time and easing the weight of child care costs and making your children more adept socially.

What you need to get started

  1. 3 or 4 like minded parents
  2. A Reverse Curfew card
  3. One day a week or month free.

What You Need To Do

Once you receive your card contact 3 or 4 family friends depending on how many days you will engage Reverse Curfew each week who have children who you would like to engage Reverse Curfew with and discuss..

  • When you would like it to begin

  • Who will take responsibility for which days.

  • Each person's contact and location details

  • What time they are responsible for your children.

Then note this information down on each card personalised to each person and you're good to go with a quick, easy reminder when it's your turn to take responsibility for the kids.

Now you can decide how many days you want off a month and who you want to help you to start your Reverse Curfew Rota or if you prefer to pay all in one go, we have mass purchasing options available.

To take part you will need at least three cards to make it work. We can help you find like minded parents too if you need us to, just click here to find out more about the Reverse Curfew Service
