  • A profound childcare dilemma Mismatch between school and work hoursMultiple solutionsQuit workFlexible working with or without additional childcareChildcare optionsProfessional (nannies, childminders)Non-professional (friends & family & au-pairs, )Ad-hoc after school activitiesAny combination of these optionsDecision drivers are cost, logistics and the safety and happiness of the childAn imperfect compromise is often the result

  • As a parentI work and need excellent quality childcare i.e. I need to be able to concentrate at work secure in the knowledge that my child is safe, well cared for, having fun and learningI need to know my child is safeI want to know they have had some fresh air, exercise and a healthy snack and ideally learned something with their friendsId like to pick them up and their homework is done doing homework at 18:15 onwards is too late/results in very negative home time Homework as a working parent is best tackled at the weekendId like them to be socialising with their friends in a familiar environment with familiar carers/teachersGood value quality service that isnt complex to organiseReliable with no sickness or other associated issues e.g. Nanny being off sick or child minder ill

    I choose the school so why wouldnt I choose an after school club run at my childs school?

  • Fundamental belief that working parents need excellent quality childcare at an affordable price and children need to be happy, secure and above all gaining enhancing their learning, socialising and health.
