Term time child care for parent teacher?

Hello


Does anyone know if there are any nurseries in Dulwich (East Dulwich pref) that are term time only?


I'm due back to work when my son is 1 and have signed up to a nursery close to work which is run for teachers - i.e. it's only open during term time so you don't have to pay for holidays.


The nursery won't have places in time so I would like to sign him up to a local nursery (means I won't have to commute with him as well) but I haven't found anything when searching online.


Can anyone help?


Thanks

Kate

I'm a teacher too and looked into this briefly when I went back to work in Jan (my daughter was 11 months). I didn't find anywhere locally that took children as young as 1 term time only. I did however find a childminder who only worked during term time and my current chilminder charges half in the school hols, plus I have the option of sending her for a day if I need to. Sorry, not very helpful maybe someone else can be of more help!


Good luck!

Thanks Crystal - that is helpful. Do you happen to have the details of the childminder you found who only worked term time? Also, do you know what the going rate for childminders is? The school I've got him signed up to is pretty reasonable - about ?47 a day - don't supposed I would be able to get a childminder for that much???!!!


Also do you know how nanny shares work?

Thanks

Hi


I'm not sure about nanny shares, was a bit out of our price range but expect someone else will help there.


Childminder rates vary, usually about ?5-6 per hour. I pay ?45 per day (8-4.30) including meals and snacks. Unfortunately one of the childminders I saw now works as a classroom assistant and the other had a post in the classified sections of this forum but I can't remember her name. I'm sure if you put up a post asking for term time only childcare you may get some replies.


Hope this helps. PM me if you need anything else.

    • Brockwell Park is still fenced off and looks like it will be for some time. The council have put signs up saying that Brockwell Live are responsible for restoring the park (got to love it when council's point the fingers at others to aportion blame!) and that the fences will stay up "until further notice". Looking through the fence gaps I suspect the Brockwell Wall will be up for some time as huge swathes of the park are compacted mud. The Brixton side of the park was very crowded due to the Herne Hill side being unusable.

    • Does anyone know what's happening with The Grove Tavern on the corner of Lordship lane and the A205? There is a new fence around the building. 🤷‍♂️
    • You did say that your neighbour was being cagey and I'm wondering if , for instance , he's doing a partial chimney breast removal rather than the whole thing and that he thinks this doesn't need a party wall agreement.
