SHEFFIELD VILLAGE, Ohio – As the workforce continues to shift toward more non-traditional hours, the demand for overnight child care is on the rise, according to Child Care Aware, a national non-profit dedicated to parents and child care providers. But News 5 discovered that few places are fulfilling that demand.
“A lot of places won’t do it, the non-traditional hours,” said Terri Raneri, owner of Mandi’s Playhouse in Sheffield Village. “There’s just not enough profit in it.”
Renari also said it’s difficult to find employees willing to work overnight.
Mandi’s Playhouse is one of a few known child care centers in the Cleveland area that provides around-the-clock care.
“We have a lot of parents that are servers, STNAs, nurses,” said Raneri.
