My Nannies

Temporary Nanny

A Temporary nanny is great if you don’t require a nanny 24/7, but are in need of some extra help.

Anything from summer holiday cover, assisting on a skiing holiday or cover any last minute breaks, we can help by finding the best nanny to cover your specific requirements.

If you require a Temp Nanny for any of the above, please get in touch as prices can vary depending on the nannies rates.


A Temporary Nanny who is there for some extra help at home, maybe a few days a week for 3 weeks for example, the cost would be as follows, being our basic temp nanny rates: 

  • £10 per hour before 7pm
  • £8 per hour after 7pm
  • £10 per hour after midnight

Minimum booking of 3 hours 

The above is to be paid to the nanny directly on the day they work.

Each temp nanny booking also requires a booking fee as follows:​

  • 0-4 hours = £10
  • 4-8 hours = £20
  • 8-12 hours = £25


If you require a temp nanny for 8 hours per day, for more than 3 consecutive days, the daily booking fee will be reduced to £20 per day. The booking fee will be invoiced by email either after the job is complete or on a monthly basis if care is required over a number of weeks or months.

Overnight Nanny / 24 Hour Nanny


Your Night Nanny will arrive at 9pm and leave at 7am. These hours can be more flexible to suit your family. She will not only care for your baby, but will also guide your baby to sleep through the night.

A Night Nanny will do any of the following:

  • Night feeds
  • Change nappies
  • Settle the baby
  • Prepare and sterilise bottles
  • Dress the baby in the morning
  • Give help and advice on getting the baby into a sleep pattern
  • Offer strategies on coping with post-natal depression
  • Stay longer in the mornings to allow you a lie-in if pre-arranged with the Night Nanny
  • Give advice on breast-feeding
  • She is NOT responsible for domestic cleaning or laundry
  • Night Nannies should be allowed to rest in between the baby’s needs. Please provide bedding.
