Re: Nanny holiday sick pay practice

When we had a nanny, in the contract we would provide 20 days holiday plus bank holiday days. I received 25 days holiday in my job so I had 5 days I could use if I needed to because the nanny was sick. In reality, the nannies we had were never sick and so they would end up having 25 days holiday. Th...

Re: reception 2019 and dolphin school clapham

Take a look at Wandsworth Prep. It's a very nurturing school, not too far from you and sounds to be exactly what you're looking for.

Good luck!

Re: Rights for "common law wife"

As others have said, you don't have any spousal rights and this is a real issue if one of you were to die due to inheritance tax. Probably more of an issue than if you were to split up as your other half has a financial responsibility to his children, although not you. I know of a few couples who ha...

Re: What's the most concern about child education?

There is a really useful website called The School Run with lots of helpful resources to supplement your child's learning.

https://www.theschoolrun.com

But have fun together too! You could do a worksheet or 2 followed by going out for mummy and daughter supper as a treat for working so hard.

Re: Have you used Koru Kids?

I tried to use them as I know the owner, Rachel a little. The only reason I didn't in the end is that they really struggled to find me an after school nanny that lived in my area. Most lived north of the river or near South Bank meaning that they couldn't get to me in time for school pick up. Their ...

Re: What has happened to Nappyvalleynet

I agree with Julian re opening a new page every time you click on a topic. That drives me mad and has stopped me using the site as much.

Also, the layout doesn’t work on an iPhone as you can’t see the full text (as others have said).

Re: Only afford to send one to private school

Actually Goldhawk makes a very good point. Everyone is talking about our own personal experiences when we were young but none of our parents had to pay Uni fees. If you can only afford for one to go private does that mean you can only potentially afford for 1 to go to Uni? If that is the case then I...

Re: Only afford to send one to private school

My best friend experienced this. Her parents paid for her younger brother to go to an independent secondary and she went to the local comp. for much the same reasons you describe. Her brother was considered more academic and would get more out of it etc etc. It did so much damage. My friend is very ...

Re: Anyone tried this nanny alternative?

I think it’s a great concept. Does anyone know which schools they pick up from? My concern is that it’ll only be ones in and around Chelsea

Re: Paying for childcare cash in hand - what's the view?

It's not fair on the nanny but what can she do? She can either take the job or not. As you said, there are plenty of other nannies willing to do this, especially nannies non-UK nationals who are not planning on staying in the UK long term and therefore do not care about their tax earnings and pensio...
