Little Ones provides a premium service for parents looking for a high quality, trustworthy and established nanny agency. We are a leading provider of nannies, finding the right person for families in London, the UK and around the world. Most parents are worried at the prospect of trying to find a nanny themselves - we are professionals at this, and can handle the whole process for you.
Finding the right nanny means ensuring that the nanny is a kind, empathetic and educated carer for your children. The type of person who will ensure that the children thrive and develop, and who has the flexibility to adapt to your family's lifestyle.
We are highly selective about the nannies we take onto our register. Most of our nannies have worked with us for years, and are highly qualified and experienced. We know them well, and we know the types of families the different nannies will suit. So the best way to set about a nanny search is to tell one of our consultants about your family and your children, and the kind of nanny you are looking for. They'll use their unrivalled experience to find a perfect match for you, whether you have a new baby, school-aged children, or a mix of ages.
Part-time and Live-in Nannies in Derby
Live-in nannies usually go to families who need a nanny for up to 12 hours a day, five days a week. The nanny's contract usually includes a couple of nights of babysitting.
The nanny needs privacy when they are not on duty, so they will need their own bedroom. If you can offer self-contained accommodation for the nanny, or even a separate living space, that's perfect. Most families ensure the nanny has a separate bathroom. Qualified and experienced candidates will be attracted to better living conditions, as we all would.
Part-time nannies will not be with you outside their shift hours, with the exception of any pre-arranged babysitting.
What Will The Nanny Do?
Your nanny will cover the normal childcare tasks, such as preparing the children's meals, washing and ironing their clothes and ensuring that their rooms are clean and tidy. You'll also find that they can bring a range of other benefits, due to their focus on the children. For example, a qualified nanny will help the children with homework if needed, and engage in educational activities suited to the child's age.
Importantly, the nanny will make sure that you are kept informed of your child's developmental milestones and their progress with educational activities.
