Parenthood360: Supporting Parents and the Local Community

ParentHood360 Launch the Hood Play Centre and Hourly Childminding Service at Balgowlah Shopping Centre: Set to Revolutionise Casual Childcare!
  • Australia’s first crèche facility supporting local businesses and the community
  • Parents can book hourly slots
  • Get guilt free relax and unwind ‘Me’ and ‘Us’ time
  • Littlies have fun in an interactive fun environment nearby

Parenthood360 has a new and convenient hourly childminding service at Stockland Shopping Centre, Balgowlah. Parents can now get some “me time” to relax, unwind and explore the centre.

ParentHood360 founder, Amber Chapman is excited to showcase the Hood Crèche, which not only offers the convenience of hourly childminding, but also enables parents to support local retailers through the suite of exclusive offers made available to them while their children play at the crèche.

These offers Amber calls ‘Crèche Credits’ and range from store discounts off groceries and coffee, to books, lunch, nails and spa services.* 

Amber said “I wanted to create an engaging space for kids, whilst also providing an option to support parents to enjoy guilt free moments to relax, indulge in some time to themselves and connect with local brands in their Hood”

ParentHood360’s community initiative was built from the founder’s desire to connect parents from local communities with each other, their partners and their children. As an expatriate with no family in Australia, Amber is very aware that it truly does take a village to raise a child.

“For most of us, parenthood is a constant juggling act and finding time for yourself is often rare. The Hood Crèche is an opportunity to put all that aside and take some time in centre to unwind and reset, whilst your little ones play in a fully supervised environment.”

Georgi Bates, a local mum-of-three and partner at a real estate agency believes the Hood Childminding service will enable her to take some quality time to herself whilst her little ones play nearby.

“To me it would be a luxury,” she said.

“I would actually be able to enjoy some time to myself without needing to rush around with my young kids in tow. 

“What a wonderful solution to have a place where I can drop my kids off where I know they’ll have fun playing with other children while I run errands or take my time picking a book out at Berkelouw.

“I could literally stop to smell the roses at the flower shop. I often just have to grab a quick sushi with the kids, but this service means that I could actually sit down and read a new book while eating a hot meal.”

Hannah Wilson, senior associate at a local law firm and mum of two, also feels; “This service would be so helpful. I have one day off a week with the kids, so I don’t often get the chance to do things just for me,” she said.

“If I had a place to drop the kids off where I knew they were also having fun, I could actually accomplish some of the things I want for myself, like getting a massage, taking some time to browse the shops, or even just getting a coffee.”

Parenthood360 is determined to address these issues and support parents to enjoy guilt free moments to relax, unwind and connect with local brands in their Hood.
