Janine Cairncross has been involved in the day care industry for 15 years. She managed a day care in 2003 and after her second child was born Janine wanted only the best for her children and was never quite satisfied with the standards evident in the day care facilities she interviewed for her children. Her entrepreneurial spirit, sparked by a mothers’ love for her children, motivated Janine to set up her own day care centre.

In 2005 Janine founded Baby Inn from her home in Bryanston. Shortly thereafter, she opened another branch in Douglasdale.

In 2009 Baby Inn was awarded the tender to set up the Nestle South Africa (Pty) Ltd day care centre at their new head office, which opened its doors in January of 2011.

In 2012 Baby Inn was awarded the tender to set up the Alexander Forbes Group Services (Pty) Ltd day care centre, which started operating in January 2013.

Janine was involved in all aspects of the creation of both Corporate day care centres. This included offering professional advice to start up a day care centre, the minimum requirements to comply with for registration of a place of care for the age groups birth to four years, structural requirements and health requirements, involvement with the layout in terms of legal requirements for architects, electricians and plumbers as well as involvement with the interior design including furniture, materials, carpentry and colour palette.

Janine has a Diploma in Child Psychology and continues to administrate the business.

Anton Cairncross joined Baby Inn in 2012 to assist with the setting up and management of the Alexander Forbes on-site day care centre and to date, Anton has built good relationships with key people within the Alexander Forbes group and fine-tuned the daily operations of the on-site facility. Anton is also a health and safety representative for Alexander Forbes. Anton is an advocate of good communication and maintains a direct line of communication with all enrolled parents from first point of contact onwards.

Anton is instrumental in helping Baby Inn focus its attention on contracting their services to the corporate market, providing specialised care to the children and an excellent service for the parents that any company will be proud of.

With 2 decades experience in production and operations, Anton has appreciation for the exacting standards expected by our Corporate clients, and he is driven to exceed these expectations at every opportunity.

"In my personal experience as a working Mother, I understand the difficulty in prioritising between the two. 
I recognised that current pressures don't allow mother's to stay at home, there is also a great shortage of good creches
 that cater for the needs of babies and I also understand that today's contemporary business hours demand flexibility
 from the people who look after children.
With all this in mind I want to offer everything parents and their babies need under 1 roof, Baby Inn was created
 with the intention of giving children the LOVE and CARE they need at this tender age. To create an environment of
 a 'home away from home' where moms and dads feel HAPPY and SAFE leaving their precious children and a place
 that is NOT a school and far exceeds Government standards."

Janine Cairncross, Founder.
