Afterschool care for 11 yr old?

-----------------------------------
Hi Can anyone advise me on this one?
My daughter is 11yr old. I think she´s too young to stay at home by herself and its against the law. But some of my neighbours leave their children of similar age alone while they are at work. I can´t find an afterschool that will stay open late enough (I finish at 6.30pm) nor one that is open early enough (I start 7.30am) - these are weekly shifts, one early week, one late week.
So what do i do? I am happy to pay a childminder but having difficulty finding one to mind an afterschooler.....
Any suggestions would be appreciated.
Thanks
