What We Do

Are you a working parent paying for full time childcare when all you really need is after school and holiday cover? Or do you attempt to hold down a job and be at the school gates in time for pick-up every day? Are you a full time parent struggling with two or more school pick-ups and after school activities? Do you simply need an extra pair of hands during school holidays? Covering the whole of South West London including Fulham and Chelsea, After School Nannies "does what it says on the tin" and provides a practical and cost-effective solution for your childcare needs at the end of the school day and during half-terms and holidays. 

Why should I trust After School Nannies with my search?

At After School Nannies, not surprisingly, we’re passionate about after school care.  Children in the UK spend between 33 and 39 weeks at school (depending on whether they’re in the private or state sector).  Either way, that leaves between 13 and 19 weeks a year when they are not in school.  That’s between 91 and 133 days, which is 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.  And that’s where we come in.

We all want the best for our children – particularly when we can’t be there to give it to them ourselves.  It’s no secret that after school nannies don’t grow on trees but we’ve spent over fifteen years sourcing excellent candidates for thousands of families across South West London. We know where to look and what qualities make the best candidates. Most of all, you can trust us to understand exactly what you’re looking for in your after school nanny.



What type of people become After School Nannies?

There is no blueprint but it does suit two main groups who characteristically embody all the qualities that families look for.

After School Students: Bright, young academically focused individuals who bring vitality, energy, enthusiasm and fun to the children they care for.  Often the first option for families with a focus on homework or for children approaching academic milestones.  Students also make great “buddies” and life mentors. The Benefits of Being an After School Student Nanny.

After School Grannies: Older women from a variety of backgrounds offering the security of experience, a safe and mature pair of hands, the confidence which comes with age. Often the first option for children transitioning from Nursery into School.  When the priority is tea, basic homework and the routine of bedtime, an after school granny can “deliver” with the ease and confidence which younger children find comforting.
