One of the perks people imagine when hiring a nanny is coming home to a tidy house, with the laundry basket empty and perhaps some left over lasagne for dinner. But just how much can you expect your nanny to do around the house?
Nannies are expensive – there’s no denying it. But there are systems available to help with the cost. The older system is Childcare vouchers (no longer accepting new applicants), recently replaced by the newer Tax free childcare.
When the time comes to hire a nanny, you may think it’s easiest to look yourself. And sometimes, it works. Sometimes, your friend’s old nanny / niece / someone they know from a toddler group just happens to be looking for a new role.
I first started my agency in May 2013. I had spent the last 10 years working as a qualified nanny and nursery nurse, both in the UK and abroad, and it had always been my long term goal to start an agency.
