Nanny Week - 18th to 24th September 2016 - Celebrating the Work of the Professional Nanny!

Being a Professional Nanny is a real career choice! This is most certainly NOT the same as being a babysitter or an Au Pair! Every year the care, support and work of nannies around the UK is recognised at Nanny Week where nannies from all areas have the opportunity to take part in a variety of events, gatherings, activities with the small people they look after.

ANA and BAPN - Two Associations with one aim.... to provide the best support for Nannies and Families!

ANA and BAPN - Two Associations with one aim.... to provide the best support for Nannies and Families!

Working WITH people has got to be a great way forward. Especially when these people are working towards the same aims! It is only natural therefore that The Association of Nanny Agencies (ANA) should work alongside The British Association for Professional Nannies (BAPN)!

Your Children….. What price would you put on their care, safety and wellbeing?

Your Children….. What price would you put on their care, safety and wellbeing?

Being a parent is one of the best things ever… the creation of a small person who will rely on you to care for them, to love and nurture them, to guide, encourage and support them in the right direction to grow up to be the best person they can ever be! As parents we make decisions which hopefully will be good ones in all manner of aspects of daily life. We trust our instincts and do the very best we can with the resources available to us. But what about when parents HAVE to return to work?

Without Great Nannies, Nanny Agencies cannot help their clients.....

Without Great Nannies, Nanny Agencies cannot help their clients.....

Choosing to be a Nanny is one of the most rewarding professional career choices a person can have…... A Nanny should have a natural instinct to nurture, support, guide, and help encourage children to learn new things to develop their skills and reach important milestones. A Nanny will also play a big part in being an exemplary role model for the children to learn from in developing social skills, manners, respect, preparing the children for nursery and school environment.

The day I felt like I was that kid from Home Alone……..

Well what can I say…..sometimes I even amaze myself! And no I am not talking about the contents of my handbag this time! After a very long time and for the first time I actually accepted for myself that yes…. People DO like what I do, they DO value my advice and support, I AM bright and knowledgeable and you know what……. I ACCEPT THIS!

Important Update from Association of Nanny Agencies (ANA) & Best Bear!

Important Update from Association of Nanny Agencies (ANA) & Best Bear!

Sharing is Caring is something I say a lot. I also believe in working together to provide the best possible support to families and nannies! Finding the right childcare is one of the most important decisions a family will ever make. Nanny Agencies who have been 'tested' to make sure they uphold the highest of standards and promote best practice will help you make this process as simple and stress free as possible. Kids Deserve the Best are members of ANA and have passed the Best Bear Test!

Sharing is Caring

Sharing is Caring

Working together and helping others is my most favourite thing - by doing this you can achieve so much more and build many positive relationships whilst providing a bigger range of services to clients and potential clients. So..... If you know of a fantastic service, someone who goes that extra mile - Share It! It will make that person smile.

Stress!!! Gillian Rayne says No 2 Stress! And I agree with that!

Stress affects people in different ways but how many of us can deal with these times effectively. Gillian Rayne and her company 'No 2 Stress at Gentle Rejuvenation', can help people with coping with stress techniques by offering a variety of advice, support, solutions and treatments. There really is something out there for everyone!

To Exhibit or not to Exhibit...... that is the question!

To Exhibit or not to Exhibit...... that is the question!

Why do people exhibit? What do you expect to get from attending an exhibition? And the thing that really annoys me. Sorry if it sounds like a rant..... but I guess it is!
