Most parents do not get out of work at the same time that their children get out of school. Though you can rely on a babysitter, schools across the country offer relatively inexpensive after school care programs for their students. After school programs offer your child a group setting with qualified instructors and structured activities. If your hours last late into the night you can always make babysitting arrangements with another parent from the group of students in the after school program for a few hours. You can combine babysitting and school programs to make sure all your childcare needs are covered with people that have been pre-approved and that you can trust. Check your local school for details.
