Welcome to Cup of Sugar!

Are you a parent who needs occasional childminding so you can have some time out, attend an appointment or go out with your partner for an evening?

Cup of Sugar offers a way to manage child minding without it costing you a fortune for those parents who don't have family on their doorstep.

Join Cup of Sugar and create your own private childminding club with other like minded parents in your community.

You can join by simply clicking on Join and entering your details. You then have access to your own 'Sugar Club' where you can manage your club how you want to and invite only people you know and trust into your club.

The best thing about Cup of Sugar?

There's none of that awkwardness in asking for help and feeling guilty about it as a points system keeps it all fair. Cup of Sugar will automatically assign points to whoever is looking after the kids, meaning it's all about give and take, and helping each other out. You can request childminding bookings from multiple people all at once with the single click of a button - so easy!

Not sure you know enough people to build your club? Join our Facebook group 'Our Sugar Club' a place to meet other parents interested in helping each other out with the kids in your community.

"I work part time and look after my little man which keeps me busy! Cup of Sugar has helped with those times I just need to get something done, whether it's extra work or something for me, and my son loves having his friends over when we look after other's kids!"
