Leigh was brilliant, she always kept me well informed and was very helpful. She placed me with a family very quickly and I would definitely use Forget me not nannies again in the future.

Information for babysitters

Babysitter Registration

When registering with Forget-me-not nannies as a nanny we will ask you if you wish to be added to our babysitting database. If you want to register solely as a babysitter, we go through the same process as described in Nanny Registration.

How it works

We will offer you bookings, via email, that suit your requirements.

Please only agree to bookings if you are 100% sure you can attend.

Respond as soon as you can to secure bookings, as bookings are offered to all of our babysitters.

The first to reply will receive the booking.

We will confirm the booking details by email. This will include details of the children, address, times and contact numbers for the booking.

Where possible we aim to set up a meeting with families and babysitters before the booking to ensure the babysitter is prepared for the booking and the families are happy to go ahead. If you met the family beforehand, they will pay you an additional £5 on the evening of your sitting.

After you have received your booking details, all further contact should be directly with the family (excluding Cancellation). For example: to ask for directions or if you are delayed for some reason.

Cancellation

If for any reason you need to cancel a booking, please let us know as soon as possible. Last minute cancellations are hard to fill and regular cancellations may lead to you being removed from our database.

Once you have a booking

Please call the family directly to confirm the booking 24 hours before you are due to arrive.

Please take your DBS (formally known as CRB) and first aid certificates with you to your first sitting with a family.

Arrive on time and appropriately dressed, always contact families if you are lost or running late.

Always ensure you have a contact number from the family in case of emergencies.

Always write down any incidents or accidents that occur during your sit, no matter how minor.

Never use a clients phone, internet or food without prior consent.

Never take friends, relatives or animals along to a sit.

Always act as professionally as you would in a nanny job.

Please always tidy away anything you may have used including any glasses or mugs.

Be safe and always let a family member or friend know where you are and when you are due back.

Payment

Payment will be paid to you directly by the family at the end of each booking.

Forget-me-not nannies babysitters are paid at £8 per hour, £8.50 per hour after Midnight and £11 per hour on Christmas Eve, Boxing Day or New Year's Eve. If you met the family beforehand, they will pay you an additional £5 on the evening of your sitting

REMEMBER

You are responsible for the children in your care and this must be taken very seriously, checks are to be made on all children every 20 minutes and baby monitors are to be used and kept with you at all times.
