Hi ladies,

Im after some advice as i am starting to get wound up and feel like my bosses dont care.

Im a live in nanny in a detached house in London. I have been in my job for almost 2 years. Over this time the garden door has occasionally been left unlocked, and when iv mentioned it mb has been apologetic and said they would double check it.
But over the last few weeks it is being left unlocked a lot, 1 night it was even left open a little. On thursday night i wrote a note (as i often had) saying that it was open and also said that everyone must lock it after coming in because i for sure dont want to wake up to find the house burgled (a house on our street was burgled feb holidays). For the first time nothing was said about it!

This morning i found the door once again unlocked and have txt both mb and db saying that we need to sit down and have a serious talk about it.

How do i get my bosses to understand how serious this is!?

I am doing a first aid course with them for the next two days but not in London.  It's been a very long time since I did any training as I've been out of nannying for a while.  Do you know if I need to take anything with me ie pens etc ?
Thanks for any help.

I've Read a French Affair.
We read it for our last months book club read.
I thought that it was ok but nothing remarkable

If it's just for occasional work then I don't think it's worth it. It would be a rare family who stashed childcare vouchers when they didn't use childcare and if you're temping to cover a child or nanny's illness the vouchers are most likely going to them anyway.

Above what you would reasonably be expected to have it's 103 to register plus the DBS. Billing the ad job families just wouldn't work IMO so you'd need a higher hourly rate to absorb the cost

It cost 103 and an extra 52 for the DBS check. Plus the cost of first aid and insurance. I paid for first aid and ins and split the cost of the ofsted and DBS with my bosses. No real benefit to the nanny, but guess it does make you slightly more employable to those parents who want to use vouchers.

Hi there

Just wondering how much it costs to become ofsted reg? My family who I nanny for didn't require me to be however I am looking for additional occasional work, would you ask the family who wants you to be reg to split the cost?

I only have an 11 yr old to wake up. Usually I knock on her door say quite loudly "ARE YOU AWAKE" if I get no response I go in and open curtains loudly till she moves. Then I make sure I talk to her about what's happening that day till she is coherent  Grin

I also was going to say maybe an earlier bed time would help. Hopefully then they will naturally wake earlier.
Open curtains and potter about gettibg things ready. Usually theyre stirring then so will say good morning etc
