Back to school is right around the corner. Have you considered your child care needs?
Thanks to HomeWork Solutions for this insight into hiring an after school nanny.
Your children are in elementary school full time and you and your partner are working full time. After school childcare is a priority. Your son wants to participate in an after-school computer program once a week, and your daughter wants to play fall soccer. Mom and dad have demanding jobs, and just getting a healthy dinner together can be a major challenge. You wonder, are there after school nannies?
Yes, many families turn to after school nanny care.
While there are certainly candidates looking for long term part time nanny positions, families find it can be challenging to hire reliable part time help. You don’t want to hire a part time nanny who is working for you until a full time opportunity comes along. Experts agree, the more hours offered the better, and the more competitive the pay the better.
Many families look to college students but be aware their availability may change semester to semester.
You will still need coverage for school closures, teacher work days and when child is sick – the after school nanny may or may not be flexible enough to help here.
