Freckles Nannies: helping busy working parents in Bristol!

Are you a busy parent who is working while juggling having your kids at home full-time?

Do you struggle to concentrate while writing emails, taking part in live video calls and phone conversations, while dealing with constant requests for snacks, sibling squabbles in the background and having your living room transformed into a gymnasium?! (Can you tell I speak from experience?!).

It is a struggle working from home while looking after kids.  I honestly think that working from home and looking after children full-time just doesn’t go together.  Not only this, but now we have the school summer holidays looming – without the usual school holiday clubs and other various sports and activity clubs running!

But fear not, here’s where Freckles can help!  Freckles is a childcare service in Bath which covers Bristol and surrounding areas, and which offers temporary, emergency and ad hoc nannies.  Run by a dedicated group of people, Freckles really understands the struggle that busy parents experience.

Freckles has a large team of nannies available, all of whom have been through a four-stage recruitment process and have Enhanced DBS and Pediatric First Aid certificates.  Freckles nannies can care for children of any age in their own homes, AND ensure meals are organised and your home is kept tidy.  Not only this but they can help with home schooling, crafts, den building, picnics and take your kids out for adventures!

Freckles nannies are flexible and can be booked for whatever hours you need (with a 2 hour minimum per shift); a nanny can usually be found to cover whatever pattern of hours your family requires, including care to fit around the school day.  Freckles can also organise nannies to cover random days or to regularly support your family.

Freckles nannies get paid by the hour (approximately £10-£12 p/h) rather than per child, so this can often be an affordable childcare alternative, especially if you have two or more children.  Freckles nannies are working within the current Covid-19 advice to keep families and themselves safe.

Having a Freckles nanny will give you that extra pair of hands you need, enabling you to work, while at the same time ensuring that the needs of your children are met, and the smooth running of your home is taken care of.
