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.

While TLC for Kids has a reputation for providing care to families with younger children, they also have services for families with older kids too.

TLC for Kids has nannies available to work as household managers.  Household Managers are a great fit for families with school age kids.

A household manager has a wide range of job responsibilities:

• Take the kids to school in the morning

• Clean and organize the house

• Do laundry

• Run errands (grocery shopping, dry cleaning)

• Schedule appointments (and take the kids to the appointments, if needed)

• Handle repairs and maintenance services

• Pick kids up after school, and take them to after school activities

• Care for children when sick

A household manager keeps your home and family running seamlessly. Having a household manager allows you to enjoy time with your family when you are home, and focus on work when you’re at work.
