Passionate about supporting nannies and raising the standards within the nanny industry.

Passionate about supporting nannies and raising the standards within the nanny industry.

Having read many posts on social media where the nanny and family relationship has broken down for something which could simply have been avoided by communicating with each other I felt the need to share some thoughts. Nannies have feelings too!

Do you know where Santa's Little Helpers are?

Do you know where Santa's Little Helpers are?

It is almost that time of year again where Santa is looking to see who has been good and who has not been good enough. So with the help of Santa's little helpers, children have the chance to visit one of the helpers and tell Santa how good they have been.

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……..

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!

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.

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!
