“It takes a community to raise a child”. Our mission is to build on this idea to help solve the media described childcare crisis in areas of unmet demand. We can only do this by working together. Our core values are convenience, flexibility and choice for both families and providers. While our primary focus is on the home-based family day care sector the Clann Platform is designed to be inclusive of other childcare providers. Schools providing out-of-hours care, occasional care providers and even Schemes and Councils representing groups of childcare providers are welcome on our platform. Nannies and babysitters are also welcome to set up profiles to connect and transact directly with Clann families.
