Leigh was efficient and professional; the nanny she placed with us has been a great success. I have recommended Forget-me-not nannies to several friends.

Information for families

There are no joining or annual fees to pay, just one small fee per booking

Forget-me-not nannies are easy to use, trustworthy, reliable and are reasonably priced. There is no need for you to be registered with us to use our babysitters.

All our babysitters have childcare experience and most are currently nannies. They have an enhanced DBS (formally known as CRB) and a paediatric first aid certificate within the last three years. Our babysitters go through the same registration process as our nannies so they are met and interviewed by us and all their paperwork and references are checked.

You always put your children first and so do we.

How to book a babysitter

Submit a booking form online, email or call our office as soon as you know when you require a babysitter.

We will contact our team of babysitters and aim to find you a sitter for your booking (see Babysitting Terms and Conditions 1.2). Please let us know if there is a particular babysitter you would like us to ask first.

We will contact you as soon as we find an available sitter and let you know their details (where possible, we will arrange for you to meet your sitter before the date of the booking, for an additional booking fee of £2 and £5 for the babysitter).

A £5 booking fee will then be charged (with an additional £2 if we arranged a brief meeting for you beforehand). This can be paid immediately via BACS or we can invoice you at the end of each month if you prefer.

Babysitter Fees

£5 per booking.

An additional £2 if we arranged for you to meet the babysitter beforehand.

Babysitter Rates

All our babysitters charge £8 per hour, for a minimum three hour sit. This is payable directly to your babysitter at the end of the evening. Please round up to the nearest half an hour when paying your babysitter. If you arranged to meet your babysitter beforehand, please add £5 to the total for the evening. There will be...

An additional charge of 50p per hour from Midnight onward.

An additional charge of £1 per hour if you require children from an additional family to be cared for.

An additional charge of £3 per hour on Christmas Eve, Boxing Day and New Years Eve.

Cancellation

Should you need to cancel a booking, please advise us as soon as you can to avoid as much inconvenience as possible for the babysitter.

If a babysit is cancelled with less than 24 hours notice, a cancellation fee of £21 will apply. We pay this fee directly to our babysitters for their loss of earnings. When less than 24 hours notice is given, your £5 booking fee will not be refunded.

If a babysit is cancelled with more than 24 hours notice, your £5 booking fee will be refunded and no further charges will be made.

Additional Information

Forget-me-not nannies defines babysitting as the temporary care of a child or children in an evening (earliest start 6pm), when parents have a social engagement. For daytime temporary care, please see For Families and Agency Fees.

Your sitter will have their own transport so there will be no additional travel costs.

All subsequent babysits must be re-booked and re-arranged through Forget-me-not nannies.

When making future bookings, it will be possible to request a particular babysitter and, where possible, we will book them for you.
