I've used both before and after school care. I thought it was fantastic. Many schools offer the service. Having said that, the last time we used it was 5 years ago so I don't know if anything has changed in that time. Our kids have since grown up so we didn't need it anymore. I'd recommend at least giving it a go 😊
I use before and after school care when needed (only 1 day a week) I won't ask others to watch my children, I personally don't like it. My girls love going to before and after school care, they get to hang out with their friends longer. They ask to go every day 😂
I don't have local friends but my mum will happily help me in the afternoon. Once i secure a stable job i am definitely looking into after school care. Also most towns have a Police citizens club that offer after school care with amazing activities. 🙂
I use before and after school care. After school care most days and before school just on the odd occasion. I don’t ask friends for that sort of support, just a personal preference of my own. I’m sure if I asked, they’d help.
Definitely don’t rely on friends, it is a burden having extra kids often. They may be polite about it at first but you could find your friends keeping a distance
Some before and after school cares do school pickups and drop offs. I would start by checking with your daycare
