Short term child care services

The Mannerheim League for Child Welfare has a pool of babysitters. They are trained and suitable to work with children. In addition to initial training, MLL also provides advanced training, supervision and counseling to babysitters on a regular basis.

Short term child care service is available for example when

  • parents need a break for hobbies or to spend some time together
  • the child’s permanent caregiver is ill
