For the last 17 years, we’ve been driven by a belief that After School Care is not just a tag-on to the end of the school day.
‘I strongly believe that after school care should not be seen as a tag-on to the end of the school day. The hours before bedtime have to fulfil so many functions; happy, secure wind-down time, re-fuelling with good, nourishing food, structure and discipline for homework, music practice, reading and above all a loving and comforting environment for your child to share any concerns or worries from their day. As a mother, I would choose care in the home after school every time for my children over and above any other options. At After School Nannies we are driven by that ethos and strive to provide families with someone who can literally be in loco parentis.’
Support - To continue to support working families by making our service more affordable and expanding our reach.
We all want the best for our children – particularly when we can’t be there to give it to them ourselves. We’ve been here for working families since 2003 and it’s always been our aim to enable parents to work, safe in the knowledge that their children are being cared for and nurtured at the end of the school day and during the holidays.
Success - Belief in the benefits of one to one support for children.
We’ve always been passionate believers in the potential of out of school hours. Children in the UK spend between 13 and 19 weeks a year out of school. That’s between 91 and 133 days or between 2184 and 3192 hours… add in the hours at the end of the day and the weekends during term time and that’s….. well, that’s a lot of precious time. Managed well there’s no limit to what we adults can help our children achieve in those hours out of school.
