Benefits of using a childcare service in Chelsea
Finding a reputable nanny for your children has never been an easy task. You want to find someone who is trained and qualified to all your requirements, and this could be very time-consuming if you were to do this on your own. Using a childcare service gives you a direct line to the specialists who will work exclusively with you on your search.
Our Little Ones’ childcare service in Chelsea receives over 8,000 nanny and domestic staff candidate applications every month, from these, we select over 900 nanny candidates per month and interview them face-to-face. We ensure that only the best nanny candidates are introduced to your family.
After getting all the requirements you want in a nanny, instead of putting forth a single candidate, we will instead provide you with a list of nannies that are suitable to your needs and preferred schedule as well as a list of candidates who we think you might be interested in even if they don’t have all the credentials that you are looking for in a nanny. This way you can explore all your options to find the best childcare solution for your family.
Our childcare services in Chelsea make sure that we put the candidates through an in-depth vetting procedure before presenting them to you. We can also provide you with interviewing tips, key questions to ask and book interviews at times that are best suited for you. Once you have selected the nanny for your family, we will also guide you with the paperwork that comes with hiring a new nanny such as sample contracts and a payroll service.
Vetting procedures of our Chelsea childcare service
Little Ones has the most thorough vetting procedure in the industry. Our years of experience in providing childcare and domestic staff to families has honed down our screening and vetting procedures to a fine art. With Little Ones’ childcare service in Chelsea, you can rest assured that the nanny that will be presented to you has had a thorough background check.
Our in-depth screening includes an enhanced DBS check and face-to-face interviews where their personal and work experience and qualifications are discussed in length. The procedure also involves personally checking their verbal references as well as identity and work visa checking. If you have language requirements, the consultant specialist in charge with the interview will test the language skills of the nanny to ensure that it is at the level you are looking for.
Little Ones’ childcare service also requires all nanny candidates to have a Paediatric First Aid certification, so you know that your children are in capable hands in an emergency situation if it was to arise.
