CocoRio uses an underemployed talent pool (professionals in creative industries) to provide creative childcare. The service is tailored to familiies' needs.
Our service offers quality child care and children's activities but what’s unique about us is that our creative sitters and facilitators also provide creative sessions, completely tailored to the families’ requirements in terms of art form, language of instruction, age group, and of course the child’s unique personality.
Our sitters are all DBS checked [to meet child protection requirements in the UK], first aid trained and are professionals in their craft – we have actors, dancers, choreographers, musicians, as well as more specific experts such as puppeteers and mask makers! Many are also multilingual and can offer sessions in a number of languages.
CocoRio also offers group sessions for under 5’s led by those same creative professionals.
This means that children get to interact with fun and inspirational people who not only are great at working with children but who also live and breathe their art.
CocoRio offers online learning as well, including online group sessions and one-to-one sessions tailored to the family and children, offering homework support as well as creative and linguistic learning.
