Handing your employer obligations
Leave the admin to us. We take care of contracts, payroll, HMRC setup, National Insurance and pension contributions. For your first nanny, you pay a £99 employer set up fee towards this. You only ever pay this once.
We have a dedicated team to help your nanny succeed. We offer top-up training, 1:1 coaching, access to a best-in-class activity bank, and extra support via our app.
Each month your nanny submits their shifts in our app, you approve them and are invoiced. If you don’t work with your nanny for the minimum hours (during term-time) you’ve agreed in their contract, you’ll still be billed for them.
With your first nanny, we charge a £99 non-refundable employer setup fee. You only ever pay this once. We have no hidden costs.
You’ll pay for the first four week’s childcare in advance. This is to pay your nanny’s final invoice. Don’t worry, we will refund any hours you overpay from their final month with you.
We know families need different amounts of childcare. We balance this with making sure our nannies have a reliable income.
We don’t allow our nannies to have zero hour contracts, so when you hire your nanny you’ll need to commit to a number of regular hours.
If you hire a nanny for less than 9 hours a week during term-time, you’ll pay an additional £1 an hour and you’ll still need to offer at least 3 hours per week.
Yes! Our nannies can look after children from two families at the same time. It’s a brilliant option if you’d like your children to benefit from a play mate while still getting all the benefits of a nanny. Plus, it’s just £10 per hour, per family and the nanny gets a pay rise too.
Some can, but the lots can’t. If your nanny can drive it will be marked on their profile.
All of our nannies speak fluent English. For most, it’s their first language, but many speak other languages as well. Our nannies come from a range of backgrounds, so just let us know on the registration form if you have any language requirements and we’ll do our best to send you nannies who speak that language. If it’s a bonus rather than a deal breaker, the number of potential nannies we can show you really increases.
We have a range of nannies if all experiences. Many of our nannies looking for after school shifts only have experience with older children but many others are willing to work longer hours and have experience with babies and younger children. Look out for a run down of their experience on each profile.
Yes! We are currently expanding to other parts of the UK. When you register with us we’ll instantly tell you if we have nannies available in your area.
You may be able to pay using childcare vouchers or tax-free childcare, provided your nanny is Ofsted registered. Please note, the vast majority of nannies will not be registered with Ofsted due to the part-time nature of the role. The cost and time to register usually outweighs the savings parents could make by using childcare vouchers or tax-free childcare.
