Little Ones is a premium agency for parents in Coventry who need a qualified, caring and experienced nanny to look after one or more of their children. Many parents find the job of recruiting and interviewing possible candidates a daunting and time consuming business. Parents can rely on our experience and knowledge to recruit a nanny who will provide the best possible care for their children. We have many years of experience in identifying and matching the right nanny with each client family.
We are extremely selective when it comes to registering nannies. Most of the nannies on our books have worked with us for many years. They are not just highly experienced and qualified - we seek out individuals who are highly empathetic and kind. We are always conscious of the fact that the nanny who joins your household needs to fit in with your family life and be flexible. And we always keep in mind the key attribute of any nanny - a person who can help your children to thrive in a positive environment when you aren't able to be present with them.
Many parents find that it's very helpful to have a completely informal talk with a consultant from Little Ones. This allows the parent, or parents, to talk freely about what kind of family they are, the challenges posed by their working lives or by travelling and what they are looking for in a nanny. We can then use our experience to find the perfect nanny for your needs, assigning someone who can provide the best care for your children.
Live-in and part-time nannies in Coventry
Live in nannies usually go to families who need their nanny to be with them for 12 hours a day, 5 days a week. These nannies usually have a provision in the contract for carrying out a couple of nights of babysitting a week. When a nanny is off-duty, they will need to have some privacy, so they must have their own room and if at all possible, a separate bathroom.
If you don't need a nanny for so many hours in the week, you'll probably find that a part-time nanny is the best solution. The nanny won't be with you outside their contracted hours but it is possible to arrange for other activities, including babysitting.
What do nannies in Coventry do?
Your nanny will ensure that the normal childcare tasks are carried out in a caring and calm environment. This will include ensuring that the children eat nutritious meals and that their rooms are tidy. Other duties vary, depending on the age of the child or children being looked after. For example, for older children, help with homework and educational activities may be needed.
