Out of the winter season I provide a short notice Emergency Nanny service for parents in the South Hams.
As a previous working parent myself, I absolutely understand the practical and financial concerns for parents when children are perhaps too poorly for their normal nursery or childminding setting, but aren’t too unwell not to be in the quiet care of a nanny at home.
This may be due to simple childhood illnesses, or to rehabilitation following more serious accidents or illnesses. Of course all manner of other unexpected emergencies may also require immediate child care help.
It isn’t always possible for working parents to take immediate short term leave from work, and can cause stressful sickness/absence monitoring issues in the workplace.
It is also detrimental to family holiday time together if precious holiday leave has to be taken when children are unable to attend their usual setting or when other child care hiccups occur which require extra planning.
I am available at short notice to arrive and to care for your child at home at any time of day and for as long as necessary. Whether that be for a few days or just a few hours whilst you arrange for other friends or family to take over.
I have my own transport and can arrive at your home with my case full of calm activities, books, crafts and DVDs.
The cost for this Emergency Nanny service is £10 per hour with a minimum of three hours.
Please call or email if you have any questions or if you have any type of childcare emergency that I could help you with.
