My kids are seven and nine years old and I am in the enviable position that I work from home. Not many parents are in this lucky position and this often means that they need to explore childcare options, whether it be to hire a registered maternity nurse, an Ofsted Nanny or an experienced governess.
This can be a daunting prospect but Nannies Incorporated (a London Nanny and Maternity Nurse Agency) makes it easier for parents to find the right childcare for their needs and circumstances. With the launch of a brand new website I was invited to take a look around. Here’s what I thought…
So What Does The Website Offer?
The site offers knowledge and guidance when it comes to selecting childcare. Aside from giving an insight into the company and its specific services, the site also provides general parenting advice and activity suggestions. The topics covered range from how to interview a nanny through to what do with kids during the school holidays.
What Did We Think of the Site and Service?
This is a clear, well laid out site with a lot of useful information. There is a downloadable brochure which will answer a lot of your initial questions – anything from who are Nannies Inc. through to the qualifications of their childcarers. And, if you’re anything like me and you find it handy to have something in hard copy to refer back to, then you’ll really appreciate this extra feature.
The FAQ lists provides a helpful snapshot as to the role that a nanny and maternity nurse can offer and what should be considered when hiring them. The information is presented in a quick reference format which continues to allow users to navigate the site easily. Interestingly, the FAQ’s covering maternity nurses was particularly fascinating to me as I never thought of having one. Having had a baby with reflux, it would have been great to have had an experienced maternity nurse to provide professional, on-hand support in those initial weeks. It may very well have also saved me and my husband a good degree of chaos and heartache.
I also liked the fact that the site was really easy to navigate around. The information was engaging and easy to understand. After spending just a few minutes on the site, you should be able to find what you are looking for, and get assistance with your childcare.
The site makes it simple to register with the agency too. You need to confirm a few contact details and what care you are looking for. This is the first step to ensuring that they suggest the right maternity nurses, nannies and governesses for you, both in terms of their qualifications and experience.
The contact information for the site is easily available too, something which is all too rare these days.
Overall – 8.5/10
The website is simple but effective. The menu layout is concise and it is easy to find the information required.
The only thing missing is an easy way to sign-up for further information and subscribe up to a mailing list. It would be great if there was a feature to sign up to emails or a newsletter. This would give people a nice free bit of parenting advice… anything on how to stop kids bickering *she asks cheekily*
This is a sponsored post, but all opinions, and chaotic kids are my own, thankfully – wouldn’t want to inflict that on anyone…
