TUCSON, Ariz. (KOLD News 13) - As many parents head back to work in-person, the need for child care is growing in Tucson.

So much so, that a new Tucson play center is already opening a second location to keep up with demand.

Trusting Connections has been running a nanny service for several years in Tucson and opened “Timeless Play” in March. The company says it is a different model from a typical daycare. Parents pay a monthly fee and reserve an online time to drop off their kids. It can be for one to a few hours to get some time away, while kids get interactive playtime.

The company’s co-founder, Rosalind Prather, says finding the right people to staff the center has been tough, but there’s a great need in the community.

“Parents are in a place of desperation right now because daycares and preschools are repeatedly saying that they’re booked. There’s just a huge shortage right now in staffing in daycares and in preschools and so this solution is a lifesaver for many families. It’s also great for the 1- and 2-year-olds that maybe aren’t ready for preschool but they just want a few hours of socialization,” said Prather.

Trusting Connections says it is always looking for good and trusting people to hire.
