Grandparents Plus has been working with and for grandparents to achieve positive outcomes for their grandchildren for decades. Our mission is to improve the lives of children by working with and for all grandparents including those who have childcare responsibilities for their grandchildren.
The childcare section of our website provides lots of really useful advice and guidance for grandparents. This includes articles, questions and answers, information about education and learning and stories from other grandparents who provide childcare. Talking about practical issues that can arise when you become a childcarer has proved useful for many families. Grandparents have told us about what issues can cause niggles and with their help, we have designed a really useful family childcare checklist you can use to help make sure that possible problems are ironed out from the outset.
