Tell us your story and receive a special gift
CareforKids.com.au is the country's leading online child care search service and has helped hundreds of thousands of Australian parents find child care (short and long term) since it began in 2003 and connects thousands of Australian parents directly with child care services all over the country.
The Mum in Profile interview is a monthly interview on the website and via the e-newsletter that talks to a celebrity or everyday mum per month (with children of pre-school age) about her experiences about juggling child care with returning to work, study or just hectic lives with multiple children or other community and family responsibilities!
We require a recent digital (jpg – 72dpi +) close up photograph of you on your own or with your children… whichever you prefer.
Many thanks for your time.
