We have a fantastic nanny who has been working for us since September 2011 looking after our daughter who was 7 months old when she joined us. She is Hungarian (has really excellent English) and has been nannying in London for over seven years. She lives on Battersea Rise so Battersea/Wandsworth would be ideal but can be flexible.
Most of her experience has been with under fives (including a nanny share for two 6 month olds) and she has excellent references from all her previous employers and is still in touch with all of them. I would really not hesitate to recommend her as she is highly organised, proactive, engaging and really great with children – encouraging their development and planning fun activities for them both at home and around London.
I’m going on maternity leave soon so will no longer need her full-time but am hoping she will stay with us 2 or 3 days a week, if she can find a suitable part-time role for the remainder of the week. I’m really flexible as to which days she works for us and also whether it is 2 or 3 days. I think that she would prefer to do 9-10 hours min a day and not to split the day between two families.
Let me know if you would like me to pass on her contact details.
