We see the value in encouraging mums to return to the workforce after having children and it’s been proven to benefit companies both socially and financially. Flexibility is paramount.

We support organisations offering flexibility to all staff, and work hard to encourage those who don’t yet see the benefits.

We recognise that childcare is an important factor in freeing parents up to work.

Australia needs solutions to make childcare more affordable and more flexible.

This is where Upswing comes in.

We find innovative, practical ways to deliver childcare solutions.

Upswing provides on-site childcare alongside work environments to allow freedom and flexibility for parents.

We work with forward-thinking companies and governments who recognise the value of attracting and retaining women in the labour force.

Established in 2015, Upswing is an experienced, quality-driven service provider. We have worked with companies including Commonwealth Bank and Charter Hall to pave the way in finding flexible solutions for parents.

We would love to discuss how we can help your organisation to be more flexible and truly family-friendly.

About Upswing’s Founder


Sally Miles founded Upswing in response to her own experiences managing work obligations and two small children.

She came up with the concept while working on her laptop, trying to meet a deadline from a play-centre. With one eye on the children and one eye on her work, she became overwhelmed by the pressure to perform both roles at once (and the excessive noise didn’t help either). In that moment, her frustration pushed her to a point where she realised she had to be part of creating better solutions for working mums.

After 6 months of researching the idea, including a fact-finding mission to the USA meeting with various operators, she left her job as Publisher at an Education Company and established Upswing.

In order to best deliver the all-important childcare component, she completed a Diploma in Early Education and Care.

She is now surrounded by an amazing team of staff all with the same intent – to make life easier for working parents. When she is not running the business or looking after her kids, Sally is completing a Masters in Social Change.

She advocates for women’s rights in the workplace and gender equality globally.
