Little Ones has been leading the childcare industry for almost 15 years and our emergency childcarers are the best in the business. Our emergency childcare means that if your child comes down sick suddenly, you will not need to miss work and you won't need to miss the next available appointment at the doctors because you are not able to attend. Our emergency childcare can also cover when your current nanny goes on holiday, our candidates are able to step in, so your life can carry on as usual.
We are able to provide high-quality nannies who can offer emergency childcare services throughout London and the rest of the world, and it can even be done within a matter of hours. Little Ones emergency nannies can step in when your child gets sick, your regular childcare falls through or is on holiday, or you go on holiday yourself and think an extra pair of hands is necessary. Your emergency childcare could be at your door in as little as two hours after you have spoken to a temporary childcare consultant.
Little Ones is proud to provide Maternity Nannies and night nannies as part of our temporary services, helping you and your little one to settle into a sleep routine, advise you on feeding methods and guide you through the process of becoming a parent. So whether you need a guiding hand through the first few weeks of becoming a parent, someone same day, someone to step in for a bit longer while you sort out our next childcare steps or someone to help you on holiday or even business trips, Little Ones has the emergency childcare for you and your family.
Why choose Little Ones emergency childcare
Our temporary nannies are utter professionals who are either career nannies who have decided to do temporary placements while they work out their next permanent nanny position or nannies who work full time as a temporary nanny. Little Ones has built a reputation over the last 15 years of only working with the most elite nannies available and this certainly is the case with our temporary nannies.
All of our temporary nannies are brought into the office for a face to face interview, where experience is discussed at great length, copies of documents are taken and references we are able to contact are obtained.
All of our temporary nannies are required to have two references that our consultants are able to verify verbally and all candidates must have a clear enhanced DBS certificate before we place them. Knowing how to react in an emergency situation is paramount to all our temporary nannies which is why they will all have an Ofsted compliant paediatric first aid certificate that is renewed regularly.
Our vetting procedure includes:
Face to face interviews in our Central London offices
Personally checking two verbal references
A clear enhanced DBS check
An Ofsted compliant first aid qualification
