part time nanny/nanny agencies

Postby sunny expat » Mon, 26 Apr 2010 2:16 pm

hello everyone,

i will soon be needing a nanny to come over at my house during the day to look after my baby while I go back to work, would you have any agency to recommend ? I know there are a few as i looked on the web but I would like to have your advice as well.

thanks

Birth & Beyond, got my babysitters from there until I settled on one that I like the most. Now we hire her every week.

Just out of interest, how much to Birth & Beyond charge for their babysitting services. I tend to find this can be very broad depending on who's asking and how often you have the babysitter.

I'm only asking as I seem to find one price on the company's web site but when I make an enquiry the fee seems to jump up quite considerably.

Many thanks

Why not check the classifieds section. There are so many babysitting ads there.
