Night-care for kids is similar to day-care services, but provided at night. It is offered by some day-care centers. It is useful for parents who have to work two part-time jobs or parents who work during the day and attend classes at night.
Parents who want to have some time together without the kids also use this service. According to Mommy Poppins, night-care tends to be less expensive than a sitter. Some places offer discounts when more than one child is dropped off at the center, even if the kids are not siblings. Children are provided with snacks and told stories at night-care. There are beds to nap in until a child's parents can pick him up.
