Nanny/Babysitter: Cost in London
Nanny fees in London can be crazy high for a working family. Imagine giving half of your salary to mortgage repayments, household bills and the other half to a babysitter. It can get very frustrating to start a family when people calculate all the costs they may not be able to bear. That is why babysitter fees in London are usually priced at per hour or per day. Not many people can afford a full-time helper. At Connecting Services we aim to deliver the impossible and provide you with the lowest nanny price in London per hour or even per day! How we achieve that? By connecting you directly to the professional we get rid of the agency fees that all the companies charge. Thus, our nanny price in London is the lowest you can get. Additionally, many sitters are doing this part-time and can come for even two hours time. No need to get a minimum of 4-5 hours per day. So the babysitter fees in London per hour are very low on our website and you can get away with a bill of less than £20.
Why it is important to choose the right childcare for your kid
When you are away from the house you want to know that your child is under safe custody and no problems will arise. That is completely normal for every parent. Thus, it is important to understand that the nanny-parent relationship should stay positive and professional. A normal babysitter in London might work around 50 hours per week which makes it hard for them to cope with extra assignments. A lot of parents assume that a nanny in London has to do not only everything for the child but for the house as well. A housekeeper is not the same job as a childcare professional. Parents need to understand and respect the babysitter in London that they hire. If they give her reasonable assignments and expect only childcare the nanny-parent relationship will be ideal.
Find a nanny in London for all age groups
You can now find a nanny in London for your new-born, infant, toddler, pre-schooler, grade-schooler or teen. All age groups are welcome and we can offer overnight stays while you are away as well. Connecting Services offers childcare specialised for different stages of your baby's life. Some professionals are more comfortable with toddlers and older kids, others are best with new-borns and prefer taking care of them instead. Thus, it is very individual to the sitter whether they have more experience and qualifications with infants or older kids.

Frequently Asked Questions
Q: How do I become a part-time nanny in London?
A: To join our team of professionals you can apply on our LinkedIn page for any openings or just contact us.
Q: How do I know the sitter will approach my baby with kindness and take care of him/her properly?
A: Every babysitter in London on our database is experienced with kids. If someone is just starting to work as a childcare professional for eg students they will usually mention it on their bio. We strongly advise all customers to check the bio and ratings and reviews before booking. If the sitter is not very experienced and won't be able to calm your baby down or entertain your child we can send you another professional instead. However, you should contact us immediately for that to be arranged.
Q: Can I book a sitter for an event last minute?
A: We advise all our professionals to constantly update their working hours and their availability. If you see a sitter being available at the required time go on and book. If it is on an hour's notice we advise to contact our team so that we can check if the professional will still be able to come and arrive on time.
Q: If I have two kids could I hire a nanny in London for both of them?
A: Yes, that works perfectly fine! You can hire a nanny in London for two kids with us! If the professional is old we advise to check with them if they are capable of taking care of two kids at the same time. However, booking of one childcare provider is allowed for two kids.
