Will you be looking at costs and sustainability? I’d be interested to see those.

Done. Great idea!

Done. Personally I don't think I would use a 24 hour service - I would rather children were with family/friends if we needed to be away from them overnight. Assuming overnight care would either be for people who work nights, or for emergencies/one-offs?
But would like longer and more flexible opening hours, including weekends, option for holiday care or ad hoc care - my son's at a term time only nursery and we are finding summer holiday care really difficult (mix of parents helping, working from home, play schemes, holidays etc.)

It is a very good idea and option for shift workers such as nurses and police. They are slowly appearing. Onsite, at a hospital would be amazing.

Our local hospital has an onsite nursery with longer opening and closing time for the staff. I've often wondered what they do with their children if they are on a night shift as many will have moved into the area away from their family and support system. So hospital grounds might be a good place to locate your 24h nursery, lots of potential customers.

I was a retail manager when I split up with my ex
-ending my relationship also ended my career because I couldn't get childcare
I would have regularly used evening and weekend care and occasional overnights
