Welcome Parents and Nannies,

 

Hello, my name is Debbie, 1985 I was government-licensed to run this Childcarer Recruitment and Employment Agency after training as a Nursery Nurse (NNEB) and working as a Nanny for 8 wonderful years in London (Chelsea and Hampstead), Europe (France, Belgium and Istanbul), and Canada. 

Today based in Bromley South London I have interviewed over 700 Nannies and am the UK's longest-reigning Nanny Agency owner.

Parents pay more to employ a Nanny to give in their home one-to-one care to their Child because they do not want given group care in a Day Nursery or Registered Childminder setting plus want to choose and agree with a Nannies suggestions on which local outings their Child goes. ​

If you have more than one Child this can be a convenient and cost-effective choice as an older sibling (s) get taken to School, collected, and cared for in school holidays and if sick. Plus a Nanny expects to do Child-related housekeeping duties including Children`s ironing and as the need arises clean and vacuum the Childs (ren) bedroom (s) and play areas.

Most Nannies choose Childcare as their 1st choice career and seek:

  • A minimum one-year contract.

  • Work with a Baby or under-school-age Child.

  • 4 - 5 days work Monday to Friday.

  • 38 - 50 hours per week.

  • 8 - 10  hours work per day.

  • Between 7.30 am to 6.30 pm.

  • Many work a 2 or 3 set day for two families.

We offer Parents more peace of mind about who they choose for:

£75 Registration Service Fee - if you seek a Daily Nanny for a 1 - 2 - 3 - 4 or 5 day week or an Evening Babysitter.

£25 Final CV Report Fee - we telephone a Parent to introduce a Childcarer and pay if ask to face - to - face interview that states: 

  • Varied Childcare-connected experiences.

  • Reference checks we did - Yes / No / Applied against each Childcare job.

  • Childcarers telephone number - so a Parent directly voice contacts to arrange within 4 days their 1st 40-minute interview.

We care about our Childcarers and offer a free service:

 

  • We Face-to-Face Interview Childcare-qualified or work-experienced Childcarers. 

  • We check the Gross (and Net) per-hour rate they aim is fair for the number of years past worked as a Nanny.

  • We often save Nanny Employers £thousands which can cover the extra Employer costs.

  • Google the Gross per hour rate a Nurse or Teacher with more responsibility earns as online unvetted people either deliberately or naively ask unfairly and unrealistically for a higher rate so Parents are overcharged. Few Parents can afford to pay above £16 per hour Gross so now fewer 4 and 5-day week Nanny jobs.

Experienced Nannies Earn - £16 to £18 per hour Gross (£10 - £14 per hour Net).

Fairest to pay the highest rates to those with decades of Nanny experience. 

Non Experienced Nannies Earn - £14  - £16 per hour Gross (£9 - £10 per hour Net).

Paid less as learning the role, if only Day Nursery worked (earn £12 - £14 phg) ideal if a Parent works from home as used to other adults around.

  • Parents pay a higher £18 - £25 Gross per hour rate when a Job Vacancy is less than 6 hours per day.

  • Before and/or After School hours - we only accept up to 2 days per week as few Nannies will do 3, 4 or 5 days because they miss the all day company of younger Children and dislike split hours. Childcare- Qualified people are offended and humiliated if asked to clean their Employer`s whole house, cook Parent meals, or iron Parent clothes and soon give notice. 

How for all our customers our Gold Service works - easy as 1.2.3:

  1. Nanny Employers 8 - 12 weeks before the ideal start date need to voice telephone us on 0208 650 3232.

  2. Then complete a 5-minute form and pay the £75 registration fee. This is un-refundable but if for any reason not one CV Report is received please return to us within 6 months and register for FREE to seek a Nanny or Evening Babysitter and these Service Terms are in place again.

  3. Next office day we prepare and display an anonymous advert on LMM Facebook (to view jobs send a friend request to Debbie Masters Misses) and adhoc in varied local to your home community social media forums.  Childcarers telephone us to apply and we briefly explain the role and check their suitability for. If we believe they may suit and their Gross rate expectation is within the Parent confided to us maximum Gross per hour rate budget we telephone a Parent to introduce.

Read Nanny Industry articles I have written for Childcare Magazines and local newspapers:

Finding the right Nanny cannot be rushed:

  • As this is one of the biggest decisions a Parent can make to pass across to a stranger their vulnerable Baby, Child (ren), and house key.

  • We need 4 weeks to display an advert and gage Childcarer response from.

  • Usually within 2 - 4 weeks Family Interviews are in place.

  • Most Childcarers have 4 weeks' Employer notice to give.

  • We don't accept immediate starts as unrealistic and stressful for us to achieve.

1998 I was the first UK Nanny Agency to do a Nanny First Aid Course, meningitis Talks, work as a Nanny talks in my Croydon Shop and annual Teddy Bear Picnic. 2005 I  moved  office to Beckenham High Street and started Christmas Cake Afternoons with me (Debbie) as Nanny Christmas for our Nannies and Children care for in Beckenham Civic Hall. We follow UK (GDPR) General Data Protection Regulations and practice Equal Opportunity, keep conversations confidential and treat Childcarers and Parents with respect.

We understand Parents are put off using a Nanny Agency if their placement fee is £-hundreds or £thousands hence our low-cost fee.  But, neither is it wise to risk using an online website such as Facebook or pay £360 pa (£30 pmth) to childcare.co.uk as neither vett the people they advertise so being just a 21st Century sweet shop advert noticeboard dishonest and devious people can create a fake Nanny job CV to ask the highest rates. Click to read these sadly serious and minor issues Parents and Childcarers experienced. Great Nannies we have known and placed for years often tell us upset they do not feel safe advertising themselves online to receive texts from strangers.
