Nanny costs undoubtedly factor into the decision-making process when considering whether to employ a nanny. It’s a big step to hand your children over to someone else. You need to feel you can trust them and have peace of mind that your children are in the best and most capable hands possible.
How much does employing a nanny cost?
Costs vary depending on location, number of working hours, job role and responsibilities and duration of contract. At Snuggles Childcare we carefully handpick candidates for our books, ensuring quality is not compromised over quantity.
We make sure candidates have:
- solid professional childcare experience
- hold a valid Enhancd DBS police check, or are willing to get one
- hold a valid first aid certificate, or are willing to do a first aid course
- have at least 2 checkable references from recent employment
We interview our candidates using our 6 step vetting process to ensure we only have the top candidates on our books. Many applications are turned down when we carefully handpick the best nannies around.
