I have a recent Ofsted 'MET' nanny inspection with a letter of proof , from Feb' 2017.
I have a lot of experience with the toddler age, but also enjoy being with children from 3 years-7 years old as the participation and communication skills at this age are fantastic and the imagination starts and develops through their creative play.

My Fees

  • Babysitting from £9.50 per hour
  • Nannying from £12.00 per hour (gross)

To be discussed during an interview procedure , I can be self-employed as a 'Home Childcarer', which would mean I take care of my own taxes and work on a ad-hoc basis OR employed and the family takes care of my taxes, NI, holiday pay etc... ...again all to be discussed during an interview procedure.I can also accept childcare vouchers.
However being Ofsted Registered it allows 'help ' towards the cost of childcare.My rates take that into account and my yearly fees for insurance Ofsted registration, DBS update service and any training for professional career development.

I have had Linda for the past six months. She picks up my 18mo from nursery two days a week and also does ad hoc care. This was my first experience with a nanny and I am blown away. The best thing is my daughter absolutely loves her. She is so great with Elsie, always engaged with her but at the same time helping her learn new words and sign language. She is extremely reliable and has never been late or had to rearrange anything. I don't always get out of work on time but with linda it's not a problem. She does Elsie's bath and gets her ready for bed, feeding her as necessary and playing with her all the time. Other days she will take her out to different places to find activities such as story time at the library. I am always confident Elsie is happy when she's with Linda. I am so sad that we have to give her up as we are moving too far away - Elsie and I will really miss her! I just hope the next nanny can come close to her standards!
