Where else can I find childcare?

Finding great after-school care is so important but not always easy. Here’s our tips for finding childcare.  

After School Nannies

If you’re looking for an after school nanny here are our top suggestions for recruiting one yourself:

  • Join your local parenting Facebook group. Post that you’re looking for an after school nanny, the name of your child’s school and when you need help. While searching through these groups can be time-consuming, we find they are often full of top tips and childcare recommendations for your area. Here are some of the best groups we are aware of: SurreyWatfordSt AlbansWindsor and MaidenheadSevenoaksDartford.
  • Try You can post an advertisement for free and browse after school nannies near you. However, you’ll have to pay a subscription to send messages to nannies.
  • Post the details of the role on Next Door (a fast growing community group) or Gumtree.
  • If you’d prefer to find an after school nanny with all the hard work taken care of try Koru Kids. We can help you find the best nanny for you with thousands of pre-vetted nannies, our platform will help you quickly find the one for you. We’ll also manage all the hard bits of being an employer from contracts to payroll and taxes.


Childminders can pick up your kids from school and take them back to their house. Sometimes they can be hard to find but every childminder will be registered on their council website.

Other Ideas

If you’re lucky enough to have local family or friends who can pick up your kids from school, this can be a great solution, although we know this is not a realistic option for most families. After school clubs can also be a great option if your school has a good one and you can get your child a place.

We really hope this has been of help to you and we wish you the best of luck with your arrangements moving forwards.
