    Your career doesn’t end when the school bell rings. We help you cover the gap. Spend the last three hours of your workday focused, not worried. Count on an After School Nanny to keep your family running. Your children deserve a safe environment at home, not just another “program.” Homework needs to get done, dinner needs to get started and maybe what’s really needed is some “down time” after school. Advancing your career doesn’t mean your home can’t run well too. Juggling schedules is a lot easier with two extra hands. Soccer games, band practice, you name it. We can help manage your family’s tight schedule. Imagine coming home to a relaxed environment where everything is handled. An experienced, professional After School College Nanny will make sure that happens every day.
