The walker would be DBS checked and you'd be able to track your kid...Please reply one of the following...1 Definately - sign me up2 Perhaps3 No wayLook forward to hearing from you.
Already have a childminder that does exactly that.Are you talking about someone collecting them from your house?
3. I'd ask a friend or neighbour to help out if I was stuck. I'm not sure I understand the logistics of using a specific childwalker. Isn't it just a childminder i.e you'd have to drop them off at the walker's house on your way to work or wherever?
Yes - I used to have to do this.
We are thinking of a troop of kids walking the last half mile to school together after being dropped off at various drop off points. But possibly being picked up from home.

3. Nope. The walk to school is the nice bit. The calm after the storm of getting her ready for school where we can have a bit of a chat.
I am actually looking into this for many personal reasons. I will need someone to take ds to school when he starts and collect him, picking him up and dropping him back to my house. So if it was available near me absolutely I would sign up!
Isn't that what they call a walking bus?? Great idea.
My primary school years ago used to do this... for free. Walking bus.
There's a little 'walking bus' near me, always seems to have between six and ten young children (two adults). All in high vis.No idea of cost, though.
Probably a good idea that if I could find a part time job around here then I would use. However, walking to school is delightful, even when they are cross and grumpy! The holding hands when they are small, teaching about crossing roads safely, etc. Cherished moments.
No, because if I'm around then I want to walk my children to school myself as it's a nice time to have a chat and if I'm not available then I'd be using a childminder to look after them, or asking a friend to drop them off.
Nope! And I'm diabetic, it's a large part of my 1500 brisk steps a day.
