If you suddenly find yourself stuck for childcare it can be a difficult situation. This is where an Emergency Nanny can help. While we never want to be in a situation where we unexpectedly find ourselves unable to look after our children, this can happen. It might be that you have been called away on urgent business for work or that a family member has become sick. No matter the reason, here at Annie’s Nannies® we have a range of Emergency Nannies who can quickly step in to help you out.
What is an Emergency Nanny?
An Emergency Nanny is a nanny who can be called upon at short notice to look after your children. It could be that you are stuck for childcare for a number of reasons or just that your usual nanny is off sick. No matter the reason, your Emergency Nanny can come in to cover the short period of time that is required. This could be for a few hours, a day or two or possibly longer.
What are the Duties of an Emergency Nanny?
An Emergency Nanny can help with all elements of childcare that is needed at the time. Depending on the time that they are needed, they can take over from the role of the usual nanny, or just for the duties that are required at the time. This could be picking the children up from school, helping with homework, taking them on a playdate and putting them to bed.
