So you need childcare for your child before or after school, or perhaps both but how do you select from the vast choice now available locally. School Shuttle are a longstanding out Of School Club and give us a few hints and tips to help you choose.

Out of school clubs can be a godsend for parents who work and can really help you bridge the hours between school hours and working hours.

These clubs can also be called breakfast clubs or homework clubs by your childs school and may be run by the school themselves or an external provider just like School Shuttle.

The most important thing for you and your child is that they are happy and relaxed at the club as you want this to be a time they enjoy and not something you are struggling to get them to.

A few things to consider are:-

  • What time does the clubs sessions start and end and will this allow you plenty of time to get there and back.
  • What are the clubs ethos around homework etc
  • Are there spaces children can go and relax and get away from the noise of the club.
  • What range of activities are on offer
  • How are things managed such as electronic games and how long are they allowed to stay on them for.
  • How will the club settle your child in
  • Is there outdoor space

and finally see what other parents have to say about the club you are thinking of. School Shuttle have some great reviews from happy parents.
