If you find yourself in a position where you need last minute childcare, Little Ones has the last minute nanny for you. All of our nannies have been subjected to our extensive and comprehensive vetting procedure so you can rest assured your child is in safe hands.
We are able to source high-quality nannies who can offer temporary childcare services throughout London and the rest of the world, and it can even be done within a matter of hours. Little Ones last minute 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 last minute childcare could be at your door in as little as two hours after you have spoken to a temporary childcare consultant.
Our specialist consultants have spent a lot of time building the relationships they have with our temporary nannies, this is because we know that by having a positive and continuous relationship with each and every nanny we work with, we know our nannies will be there for you when you need childcare most.
All of our nannies are able to be at your door within two hours and can stay with your family for up to 6 months. Little Ones is proud to provide Maternity Nannies and night nannies as part of our temporary services. Our Maternity Nannies are here to help you and your little one settle into a sleep routine, advise you on feeding methods and guide you through the process of becoming a parent for the first time or the fifth time.
With Little Ones last minute nannies, you don’t ever have to be caught out.
Comprehensive vetting is our greatest concern
For almost 15 years, we have been dedicated to ensuring your children are in safe hands. Our vetting procedure is comprehensive and will leave no stone unturned. Our consultants only work with emergency childcarers who are compliant and who they have personally checked. All of our temporary childcare providers 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 are obtained so that we are able to personally check them.
All of our temporary childcare providers are required to have two verbal references that our consultants are able to verify and all candidates must have a clear enhanced DBS certificate before we place them. If they do not have a DBS certificate, Little Ones is able to request one on their behalf.
You never know when an emergency is going to happen so knowing how to react in an emergency situation is essential 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
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. 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.
