Childcarer’s work is flexible and versatile

Pilke’s competent childcarers are reliable and safe adults. With them, children always have an opportunity for a good day.

We offer childcare services around the clock, every day of the year. Jobs may be called in with a short notice: at best, the childcarer arrives at the client’s home in half an hour. Our childcare service area covers the Capital Region and Uusimaa municipalities, the regions of Tampere and Pirkanmaa as well as the cities of Turku, Oulu and Kuopio, including their close surroundings.

Families utilise our childcare services in various life situations. For example, an employer can offer care services for a sick child as an employee benefit, or a municipality can provide families with help via the service voucher system. Families can request a childcarer to assist in daily evening chores or in transporting the children to hobbies. The needs and wishes may vary – our job is to provide the help of a safe adult.

The work at Pilke Childcare Services is particularly suitable for childcarers, practical nurses, public health nurses and students of these fields. All applicants must be of legal age and have experience in caring children of all ages. We check the applicants’ backgrounds and criminal records carefully.

The childcare work is flexible: you can work full weekend hours, take on occasional jobs or something in between depending on your wishes and situation in life. As such, the work is suitable for full-time professionals, students and pensioners alike.

What makes a good childcarer?

According to parents, the most important quality of a childcarer is reliability. A good childcarer is described as a trustworthy, cheerful person who loves children.

Parents tend to say that a successful day of childcare shows on the child’s face. Other desired characteristics include inventiveness, dedication, empathy, gentleness and patience

“In the eyes of a child, the best childcarer is authoritative but knows how to have fun. A person who sets limits and holds on to them while providing care and love from the bottom of their heart. Childcare is heartfelt work.” – Jaana

Pilke’s childcarers always strive to provide children with a good day. We wish to ensure that parents feel safe about inviting our childcarers to their home. Consequently, we constantly request our clients to provide feedback and share their experiences about our childcarers.
