Child Care News for Parents & Carers
October 17, 2018
Welcome, this week learn about the more flexible form of care being offered at Kindoo! Also new research sheds light on the age-old challenge of colic. It's National Carers Week (14-20 October) a time to celebrate the tireless work of unpaid carers.
Child care with wrap-around hours
One size doesn't fit all when it comes to child care, and Kindoo! is a new service that's putting the focus on flexibility.

Based in Ferntree Gully in Victoria, Kindoo! offers wrap-around child care from 7am to 11.30pm through its various programs, and the flexibility doesn't end there. Parents can pick and choose which sessions suit their needs, and this is great news for those working late, juggling study, seeking Saturday night care or generally looking for that happy balance.
The latest research into infant colic
One in five babies suffer from colic, making it one of the most common conditions experienced by infants under the age of four months.

Although infant colic is considered to be benign and self-resolving, it can still have serious effects on family life, with links to maternal depression, child abuse, such as baby shaking, and breastfeeding being stopped early.

Fortunately, a new study by the Murdoch Children's Research Institute has looked at management options to help babies and parents cope with the crying.
