Like Minder babysitting nannies

Stop press! After much demand from their clients, Like Minders have now added permanent nannies to their trusted childcare services. With over seven years under their belt, providing the Capital’s parents with only the best, safe babysitters and child carers, they are hoping to help families find a more permanent solution to their childcare needs, (as well as all of their normal ad hoc and temporary services of course!).

They know a thing or two about what families are looking for in a nanny and they have some really fantastic nannies available and looking for work. So give them a call for a chat! And as a special introductory offer, they’re giving 5% discount on permanent nanny agency fees to anyone who quotes Barnes Mums when registering!

Like Minders woman and girlLike Minders is an exciting service that offers safe, flexible and reliable childcare and babysitting using only the very best child carers. They’re a great option if you need a permanent nanny, or some extra help with the kids but not enough to warrant the expense of a nanny or responsibility of an au pair. They provide babysitters, childcare and nannies for almost any situation, which can be a real godsend to busy families.

Like Minders girlAll of Like Minders’ babysitters and nannies are over 21 years old, and are experienced child carers who have been put through a vigorous screening process. This includes a personal interview, DBS check and extensive reference check, giving you complete peace of mind when you need to leave your children in the care of someone else.

There are six main services on offer:

  • – Babysitting – any time, day or night. Like Minders will try to find you a suitable babysitter even at very short notice, and will always book your favourite babysitter when they can.
  • – Permanent nannies – full time permanent positions, whether living in or out. Complete peace of mind that your children are in the very best hands.
  • – Emergency childcare – for example, when you have a last-minute change of plans or your child is unwell and cannot attend nursery. Like Minders can get an experienced child carer to your home within an hour or two of the office opening.
  • – Daytime childcare – you can choose daytime childcare as and when you need it, and book a regular day (or part of a day) each week with the same child carer.
  • – Part-time / temporary nannies – for three or more days of help per week. Temporary nannies cover anything from a few days, weeks, or perhaps the school holidays.
  • – Holiday nannies – booking a holiday nanny provides care for your children for your time away, be it a long weekend in the UK or a few weeks abroad. It is up to you as to how much or how little your holiday nanny will be involved.
