Hello everyone. Apologies we have been quiet for a while.
Sadly we have decided to wind Caboodle up for now. We think there is still a need for flexible childcare and more support for working parents and we will continue to take part in those conversations, seeing what we can do to help. However, we don’t have the capacity to run Caboodle as a CIC at the moment, either financially or in terms of time, so we are going to call it a day.
We want to thank everyone who has been involved, from the mums who gave us their ideas and support in the early days, to the children and parents who came to our sessions. We also want to thank everyone who helped make the sessions possible and gave us the chance to explore this idea further, gave us advice and listened to our thoughts. We are very happy to share our experience with others and hope one day to see some flexible childcare and work space options for all those out there who don’t work 9-5.
Best wishes from Ellie B, Isabel and Ellie F
