Re: Nanny holiday sick pay practice

We give 20 days holiday plus bank holidays. In reality our nanny always gets more holiday as we tend to take more. For sickness, I think we have written in our contract that sick pay (above SSP) is at our discretion but we may pay up to one week of sick pay. In reality we’ve tended to be more genero...

Re: 3yrs old Autism - help/advice

Hello and big hug, you must be having a very worrying time. These therapies are basically forms of applied behaviour analysis (ABA).  My son has been on an ABA programme for the last 3 years to great success (more the verbal behaviour methods).  I think many ABA professionals use the ESDM for very l...

Re: Martinhal La Quinta

We went last year and had a really lovely time. We specifically wanted to go to Quinta because of the golf and proximity to airport.  Martinhal was nice - is not a complex specifically built for them, was something else they took over so last year they hadn't completed the refurbishment of all the v...

Re: Lost Car Key!

There was a post on next door recently about someone finding Peugeot car keys. Could be them?

Re: Anyone selling a pink mini micro scooter any condition?

I’ve got a purple one you can have if you like. It’s pretty used but nothing wrong with it. Message me if you’re interested.

Re: Baby name clash - NCT group - keep or switch?

I wouldn't bother changing. You can just say this has always been your name. If I was the other couple (and I am not I appreciate) I wouldn't care.

Re: Nanny and kids interaction in parks/playgrounds

Could the kids be exaggerating?  I don't think it is entirely off of her to let the kids run about but that depends on the "whole" i.e. you say you are not seeing an increase in interaction at home. You could make some suggestions about activities they could do (eg ball games etc)? My last nanny got...

Re: Kids behaviour advice

Hi. To be clear, is the child screaming when you take them out to go to the nursery?  You and the mum need to work out WHY the child is screaming. Behaviour is communication (particularly with a 2 year old who won't be able to express all his wants or needs). My son at one point used to scream every...

Re: Gorst road or Grandison road

Do you have kids? Grandison more likely to be in the catchment for schools eg Belleville. If you’re looking at the bit of grandison between the common and Wakehurst, can be a bit of traffic. Depends whether you’d rather live north side or nearer to Northcote too. I’d go grandison but you’d probably ...

Re: Wife refuses to stop spending so much - help

Also sounds to me like she needs a reality check. Who does she socialise with? Other people who live in the “bubble”? It is easy to get caught up in lifestyle but does she think beyond eg perspective on worrying about replacing a 3 year old car when there are people who rely on food banks. Actually ...

Re: Have you used Koru Kids?

Not personally but a friend at work has (lives in East London). They sent her a candidate (a student) that she hired and she’s been happy with her and the arrangements with the agency.

Re: Best Putney pre-prep for SEN/anxiety?

To be honest I would also look at state schools. Private schools are not bound by the same requirements as state schools with regard to children who may need additional support (private schools are not required to do anything by law beyond comply with disability discrimination legislation but state ...
