Au Pair London

There are many reasons why families decide that they need outside help with childcare and which lead them to look for au pairs in London or nannies in London.

At one end of the spectrum, the need for support from a nanny in North London may be due to a family bereavement or because the full-time carer wants or needs to return to work.

Or perhaps the need for a nanny in North London is simply because nannies in London can make a big difference to those with busy lifestyles, and have the room available for au pairs in London to stay in their residence. Whatever the reason or circumstance which leads to looking for nannies in London or au pairs in London, the extra hands on deck with the arrival of a nanny in North London makes everyone's life a little easier and run more smoothly.

Nanny Agency London

If you are considering getting some help with childcare from a nanny in North London, for whatever reason, and are actively looking for a nanny in North London, then there are several things to consider - remember these pointers before you start drawing up adverts for a nanny in North London or before you contact a nanny agency in London or an au pair agency in London as it can save time and money in the long run to be prepared.

One of the first things you need to identify is whether you need a nanny in North London from a nanny agency in London or an au pair from an au pair agency in London. Many people don't really know the difference between the two and presume that the job titles are interchangeable - this is incorrect. There are some important differences between a nanny in North London from a nanny agency in London and au pairs from an au pair agency in London and making sure you are clear about your requirements from the outset will help you get the right help.

To put it simply, nannies from a nanny agency London are qualified and experienced in childcare and will be expected to have sole responsibility of the child or children. Being a nanny with a nanny agency in London is a job in the same way that being a nurse or carpenter is; this means that a professional wage is expected, as are regular working hours and all the rights that come with being an employee.

Au Pair Agency London

Au pairs from an au pair agency in London are young people from other countries who are visiting the UK to learn the language and culture. They may or may not have any experience with children. They should have a genuine interest in children however and be able to communicate with at least some English. Au pairs from an au pair agency in London are not to be given sole responsibility of children and are paid in room, board and pocket money. Their working week will be less than a nanny's and expectations should be more fluid.

Many families simply don't know where to start when looking for nannies in London. It's a fact of life that childcare is one area where you can't necessarily rely on word of mouth for help - as unless their needs change, people won't let go of good help for anything!

Looking in newspapers or on websites for nannies in London or au pairs in London is the first place many people will search. However, these adverts for nannies in London or au pairs in London are unregulated and few parents would be happy to ignore regulations when it comes to the safety and well-being of their children.
