O/T looking for after school care for 14 year old

naddie, Oct 5, 2:18am
Hi there can anyone tell me if there is any after school care available for that age. I have been looking but cant find any agency that does it. My boy is physically 14 but mental age of 12. Looking for somewhere for after school as I am starting a new job,
thanks

You may want to add an area!

Also, maybe try an ad in your school newsletter. there maybe a local mum who is happy to have him after school!

Slightly out of area http://www.mashkids.co.nz/ but I looked into this earlier in the year.

Maybe its time to let your son be responsible by being on there own for a couple of hours. Till you get home. You might be surprised. Otherwise ask around your street.

Correct me if I am wrong but don't you have to be 15 to be left alone!Or is that to be in charge of others!

Dont know what the age is but my son is not ready to be by himself. Would make my life easier if he was but he is only mentally 12.

Can you try an agency like Grannys Nannys or other such babysitting service !

Try the Homework Club, they wouldn't usually go up to high school age but it might be worth a try. http://www.thehomeworkclub.co.nz/
