Sweden Has Night Nurseries

Working parents rely on daycare facilities to take care of their children when they work during the day, but what happens if your job is at night?

Not a problem in Sweden, where they have night nurseries:

"At first it was very hard to take my kids to sleep somewhere else and my heart was aching," says mother Maria Klytseroff, 39, a part-time care assistant for people with learning difficulties.

Her children spend about two or three nights a week at one of the preschools, which is more like a homely apartment than an education centre.

"I am a single mum and I wanted to go back to my job, which is at night," explains Maria.

"The children soon got used to it, they have friends and they adore the workers who look after them." [...]

The toddlers arrive in time to eat dinner, clean their teeth and then enjoy a bedtime story with a member of staff.

But not everyone is sold on the idea. Read more over at the BBC: Link
