I am a mother of two children – Amelia and Alexander. In my twenties, I worked at the BBC for eight years as a television presenter on BBC News 24 and a reporter on the current affairs programme. I tried to carry on working at the BBC when my daughter was born, but I really struggled trying to hold down a tough job which required a lot of travel and looking after my daughter.
Within 15 months, I gave birth to my son, he gave me the idea of setting up Night Nannies.
£250Per Night (9pm - 7am)Agency fee £130 plus VAT per week
From £210per 24 hoursAgency fee £110 plus VAT per week
£20per hour (minimum 4 hours)Agency fee £110 plus VAT per week
Night Nannies are self-employed and liable for their own tax and National Insurance. The client is asked to reimburse the Night Nanny for all expenses attributable to the interview upon presentation of receipts.
For each night the Night Nanny works the agency will charge £25 including VAT. This will be payable at the end of every month by credit card only.
Suitable from birth to 6 months, your Night Nanny will work from 9pm to 7am, although these hours are flexible upon discussion with your Night Nanny.
£200 to the nanny per night from 9 pm until 7 am and a one off agency fee of £130 excl VAT for up to a week.
For a reduced fee, a Sleep Trainer could come for just one night to assess the situation and create a custom made routine for you and your baby. She would then offer 2 weeks of telephone consultations.
This would be at a cost of £300 and then £110 plus VAT agency fee.
A Maternity Nurse will come to your home and stay 24 hours a day for up to 6 days a week. She will develop a 24 hour routine for your baby focusing on effective feeding and sleeping patterns and ensuring that your new baby settles easily into your family.
A nanny can come to your home for the day pre or post-natal. They can sort out your nursery, organise your equipment, show you how to bathe, breastfeed and weaning advice.
They will come in the daytime and help with daytime naps, breast-feeding and behavioural issues, she will stay for a minimum of 4 hours, and she can then develop a plan of action, which you can implement yourself.
Including sleep, feeding and behavioural issues, your Night Nanny will come for a consultation to get a good idea of the situation. She can then develop a plan of action, which you can implement yourself, or it will form the basis of the work she can undertake at a future date. There is a £15 charge per follow-up call.
- In the event that the Client wishes or needs to cancel the booking prior to commencement due to extenuating circumstances, the Agency reserves the right to retain 50% of the fee for work incurred.
- Good Friday/ Easter Day/ Christmas Day/ Christmas Night/ Boxing Day/ New Year’s Eve/ New Year’s Day/ Bank Holidays – your Night Nanny will ask for double pay.
- 24 hours’ notice is required to cancel your Night Nanny, or payment in lieu (please refer to General Terms & Conditions for more details on cancellation charges).
- Your Maternity Nurse will ask for one week’s pay in advance to secure her services.
