An Afterschool nanny typically cares for children aged five years and over, although they may be experienced caring for children of any age.
Afterschool nannies typically work between 3-6 hours per day. For this reason, the hourly rate is often higher for an Afterschool nanny as morning positions are rare.
Afterschool nannies typically live out, i.e. not with your family. They often study part-time or are on student visas. We aim to introduce afterschool nannies who live within a 40-minute commute to your family’s home.
What are the duties of an After-school Nanny?
Duties are more limited as an afterschool nanny has fewer hours than a full time nanny, however responsibilities may include:
Picking the children from nursery or school
Preparation of meals
Driving the children
Educational activities such as teaching a second language
Arranging play-dates and social schedules
Planning children’s extracurricular activities
Keeping them engaged whilst the parents are still not around
Getting them washed and ready for bed
Helping during half-term and school holiday.
What do you pay for hiring an After-school Nanny?
In London, an after-school nanny with more than three years of professional experience earns between £12 to £15 net per week. However, this is dependent on family requirements and the nanny’s experience.
After-school nannies can travel with your family, work full-time during half-term and school holiday, and offer 24-hour cover while parents are away. In such instances a set salary will be arranged.
How can Little Ones help you to find the perfect After-school Nanny?
The process of finding a nanny that is suitable to your family’s needs and preferences is not only difficult but will also add stress and worry if you were to do this on your own. While directly recruiting candidates gives you the flexibility and control, it can be a daunting task as sifting through the candidate applications will take too much of your time and most of these applicants do not even have the necessary qualifications and experiences that you are looking for. Whereas, if you use a childcare agency, you will have the reassurance that the nannies that will be presented to you have undergone a strict and very thorough screening and vetting process, something that an online job site will not be able to offer you.
Little Ones childcare agency receives thousands of applications a month, from these we only select the very best and schedule them to a face-to-face interview. These interviews include an in-depth discussion of the candidate’s personal experience and work history. Our expert consultants will also take verbal references from the candidate’s previous clients as well as identity and work visa checks following a rigorous process. We also require all our after-school nanny and childcare candidates to undertake a Paediatric First Aid qualification. We offer this course at a very affordable price to make sure that the nannies from Little Ones agency are able to fund a course. Furthermore, all Little Ones Live in Nannies will have DBS check or police check, as Paediatric First Aid certificate.
