What to expect from your caregiver from British Nannies

You can be confident that every caregiver provided by British Nannies will: 

  • Value great communication and being prepared. You’ll receive an introductory call from your booked Nanny so that you can get to know each other and discuss your family’s requirements before care proceeds.
  • Understand and respect the importance of following your instructions and guidance.  From hand washing to healthy eating, their number one priority is the health, safety and wellbeing of your child.  
  • Be experts in putting children in their care at ease, engaging them in fun and stimulating activities so they are happy to say goodbye as you head off about your day. We want your child to have a great time! 
  • Ensure that they tidy away any toys, games, arts and crafts and clean kitchen areas if they have prepared any meals for your child. You should return to a tidy home and a child who has had a wonderful day.
