Access to high quality, affordable childcare is the “biggest barrier” to working families today (Source: The Atlantic…and our daily experience)
Flexable is on a mission to make childcare easier, in order to make life easier.
Whether you are a parent, caregiver, employer or anywhere in between – if access to quality, affordable childcare were no longer a barrier, what would you be able to do? Share your #IAMABLE story with us:
My mother died unexpectedly and I did not have access to emergency or backup childcare for my 3 children. A quality, affordable childcare option would have allowed me to more easily manage critical paperwork related to her estate, help my family settle my mother’s affairs…speak with the customer service department about ordering an urn without children screaming in the background. I still haven’t had much time to actually work on grieving, but surely childcare would offer me an opportunity to do that, too. – Katy L.
#IAMABLE to have a fulfilling career fundraising for one of the most amazing conservation nonprofits in our country and give my children the space to grow during the day with teachers and caregivers that expand their worlds. – Jenn L.
Im a single mother, co-parenting, so Im dating and have my own house. If I had flexible, affordable, consistent evening and weekend care, I could date, invest, and also work on my house, my yard and personal paperwork!! – Maria G.
I work a full time job AND own my own business. Burn out is a guarantee as is guilt over always working. If childcare was more affordable I could scale back my day job hours and work more on increasing the profitability of my small business. If child care weren’t double my mortgage every month I could work just one job and really grown my business into something larger. Imagine that – flexible, affordable childcare = more productive, happier parents. – Kati F.
If affordable and quality childcare were available I’d be able to accomplish a lot. I’d be able to work decent hours or at least be able to look for a job without having to pay an arm and a leg for a decent babysitter. – Michelene P.
