Proxim’services

France Normandie

Short presentation

Proxim'kids is a home childcare service for parents working in staggered and atypical hours.

Goals

- Act as a relay for the various existing reception methods (school, nursery, nursery assistant, leisure center, etc.)
- Allow parents to maintain and integrate into employment by lifting the social barrier to childcare
- Support the professional integration of single-parent families and in particular single women with children
- Preserve the well-being and balance of the child
- To energize and make our territory attractive.

Contexte (territory issues, targeted audience)

PROXIM’AIDE- PROXIM’SERVICES is oriented towards personal services with a diversified range of household services and home help services, including occasional childcare. The current limits of childcare arrangements are a barrier to employment (or to integration and training paths towards employment), particularly for women.

Actions implemented

We take over from the existing reception structures in the following slots: every weekday from 6 a.m. to 8.45 a.m. and from 6 p.m. to midnight, as well as Saturdays, Sundays and public holidays on full days. We also take care of transport between these various structures and the homes of families.

Requests can relate to one-off or regular needs and services are always provided at the homes of families.

Regarding prices, we apply a social scale according to household resources. The participation of families can therefore range from € 0.41 to € 22 per hour. Beyond a certain threshold and depending on their eligibility, families can also benefit from financial assistance from CAF to lower their monthly bill. In addition, being an association of personal services, people calling on us can also benefit from a 50% tax advantage (reduction or tax credit).

The interventions are provided by experienced and qualified employees of Proxim'Services who, for some, have benefited from an EPS (Child Prevention and Help) training provided at our request by the Red Cross.
