Before School Care

posted May 20, 2015, 4:39 PM by Reception @TMCS

We appreciate that fitting in School drop off and pick up times with a busy working life can be very challenging for some families. The Board has looked at the results of the  Before School Care survey and we find that 71% of respondents would only require a half hour service. Of these only 8 families would use the service on a daily basis. 11 others would use the service weekly and others occasionally. These numbers and the time frames do not make it viable for the Board to employ personnel to run such a service.

As the survey was anonymous, we do not know which families were finding it especially hard to cover their morning timetables. It was suggested that the families may like to pool together in some way - possibly with a nanny to help achieve a solution. If you are in this situation and would like to work with other families we could gather names at the office and put you in touch with each other.
