How to Find an After school nanny

After School Nanny London

Are you a working parent in need of after school childcare now it’s back to school season? After school nannies are perfect for busy mums and dads who require a part-time childcare professional to patch the gap between school ending and work schedules.

Whether it’s taking the children to after school clubs or supporting them with homework tasks, an after school nanny can ensure your children remain happy, stimulated and safe until you arrive home from work.

What is an After School Nanny?

An after school nanny provides one to one childcare during the period of time between school finishing and the parents arriving home from work. However it is also common to arrange school drop off in the mornings as part of the childcare hours they work.

What are the duties of an After School Nanny?

In general a nanny’s job will vary due to the nature of this personalised childcare that is tailored to suit an individual family’s requirements. However generally after school nannies will carry out the following duties that revolve around the children’s school routine.

  • School drop off and pick up
  • Transporting children to and from play dates/ after school clubs
  • Homework and school projects support
  • Snacks and dinner preparation
  • Bed time preparation
  • Light house-keeping duties
What are the benefits of an After School Nanny?

An After school nanny is a more accessible form of personalised childcare for parents who don’t necessarily work a regular 9-5 and need more flexibility but also do not require a full time nanny.

Nannytax’s top benefits are listed below:

  • Children have a professional child carer who can provide one-to-one personalised care.
  • Children have full flexibility to attend after school clubs specific to their weekly schedule.
  • Parents can commit to their own work schedule and have more flexibility knowing the children are in safe hands with a professional childcare provider (whilst sticking to the hours laid out in the contract of employment and paying over time where due).
  • Parents have more quality time to spend with their children in the evenings as After School nannies will often have things organised for the next school morning e.g clean uniform and packed lunches.
