Our daughter will be starting school in Clapham on the 3rd September 08 (she's 4). That's great, the only problem is that we live in Waterloo and she's too young to go by herself.

Do you know of anyone who could get to Waterloo at about 7.45am in the morning, take her to school by bus or tube, pick her up at about 3.30, and look after her until we get home at about 6?

Maybe we could share a childminder with another parent from the same school. We'd be happy to have a French or English speaking person too.

Please let us know if you can do this, or know someone who might be interested in doing it (or part of it) or sharing the load.

Contact Tom on 07779 128434 or Corinne on 07957 192393 any time.

why not speak to the headteacher or the PTA - they can pass on your details to other parents from the (unnamed) school who live in your area or may know of good professional agencies.

entrusting someone from an unregulated (in child care/protection terms) website seems naive ... but I'm not a parent so shall hold my tongue

Oh yes - good point thanks - the school she's going to is WIX School (bilingual French / English) in Clapham. It's on Wix's Lane, which runs between Lavender Hill and Clapham Common North Side.

Thanks for the advice too Colinio. It's a good idea to contact the school themselves.
