The Benefits of Hiring a Before and After School Nanny


Both children and parents lead busy lives, with school and work taking up a substantial amount of time in the day. For many parents, preparing children for school in the morning and juggling their schedule to allow for afternoon pick-up are the most time consuming parts of their day. If you’ve found yourself feeling a little worn down and in need of a helping hand, a before and after school nanny could be just what you need. In this blog post, ABC Nanny Services will highlight some of the key benefits such a nanny can provide for your family. 


5 Top Reasons to Hire a Nanny


  • Support Your Child’s Education

Childhood is a time of growth and new experiences. In addition to supporting your child’s learning at school, a nanny can also provide tailored support to help foster a lifelong love of learning within your child. By catering to your child’s emotional and educational needs, children are encouraged to engage in structured educational play whilst also developing their language and literacy skills. This is achieved through tasks such as daily reading, fun math games and more. The individual attention a nanny can offer outside of regular school hours will support your child’s ongoing development. 


  • New Experiences


Engagement with others is an essential part of self-development, and by adding another person into the family dynamic your child will be exposed to new ideas, cultural views and experiences. Unlike Out of School Hours Childcare, a nanny can provide one-on-one support within the comfort of your own home. They can also offer your child new experiences such as a trip to the beach, museum or local park. 


  • Hassle Free Pick-up/Drop-off


It can be difficult to carve out some time in your busy schedule to attend to morning and afternoon drop offs/pick-ups. From lining up in ques, dealing with traffic or trying to work around meetings, this can cause unnecessary stress for many parents. A nanny can provide prompt and reliable pick-up/drop-off services to provide you with peace of mind that your children arrive safely and on time. 


  • Assistance with Extra-Curricular Activities


Before and after school are popular times for extra-curricular activities, and a nanny would be more than happy to help your children get to their activities. From sports to ballet, music and more, a before and after school care nanny can make it easier for your child to follow their passions. 


  • Reclaim Your Time and Energy


Running a household takes a lot of effort. From laundry to admin, dishes and cooking nutritious meals it can sometimes feel like there aren’t enough hours in the day. Engaging a nanny can help to free up your schedule, as they can assist with meal preparation and small tasks such as hand folding washing or light cleaning duties. When you walk in the door after a busy day at work, all that’s left to do is sit down, relax and spend time with your family.
