Putting a strong emphasis on making the transition from mother care to the crèche as joyful as possible for both the child and the parent, Sunflower offers the services of trained carers, experts in their field and a range of pedagogical activities. Founders Helen Clarke and Sam O’Dea, working mothers themselves, understand the challenges of balancing work and family and consider it a privilege to be given the trust of the parents to look after their babies in this “second home”. As O’Dea explains: “We care for the children and educate them so that parents know that their child is in a stimulating environment.”
