Hi
I've just started looking after a 5 month old in Regent's Park primrose hill Camden area. Looking for ideas on activities and to make friends with sameish age children. Look forward to hearing from people.

I'm new to Barnes and London and looking after older boys who will be at school, looking to meet other nannies in the area maybe for a coffee when kids are in school or to meet after work for a chat, I don't know anyone so would appreciate any input on local yoga classes.  I'm a bit more 'mature' (much prefer that word to older) although still like a laugh and someone to offload my job frustrations to!

Hi,
I'm in a nanny share with 4 families in total, but we rotate care so I'm only looking after two families at any one time. (It sounds complicated, but practically it really isn't!)

Anyway my mini dilemma is that my two youngest charges are 4 and will be starting school full time in sept.
The families are very keen to keep me on to continue providing out of school care, and cover child sickness, inset days etc.
We are actively looking for another family with a preschooler to join our share, hoping to find someone I can care for in the daytime to fit in with our out of school hours.
My families have expressed that if no families arise, they will still keep me on full time in a sort of nanny/housekeeping role - which I suggested.

Great! Brilliant!
Except last week I discovered I'm pregnant.
I feel my families deserve to be aware as soon as possible to help them decide how to proceed with future childcare.
I'm hoping they will go along with my idea of continuing to employ me full time until I have maternity, then perhaps I can go back part time and drop the housekeeping duties!

Trouble is we have adverts around locally for childcare available from September.
I feel strongly that it wouldn't be fair to lead someone along offering childcare then as soon as we start in September, reveal I'm preggers and want maternity leave!

Do I tell my current employers sooner, and stop looking for another family?
I'm in conversation with a parent at the moment about potentially having her son a couple of days a week from sept. - should I mention something to her? - perhaps say I think she ought to know I'm intending to have children in the not so distant future??

I know I don't have to say anything to anyone yet, but as it will effect others so much, I can't help think I should.

What would you do??

Hi

Has anyone done this course? If so, how long did it take to complete? Reason I ask, is I enrolled on it 3 weeks ago and you have 8 weeks to submit your assessment, but due to circumstances I didn't have the time to study those weeks.  Is this going to damage my learning, or is it still possible to get it done, if I cram in studying?

Many thanks in advance.

Hi all,

I was due to work for a family who were coming over from the USA starting yesterday in London.  However they cancelled on Thursday due to the terrorist attacks.  As it was such short notice, I emailed them saying it was standard practice to be paid for the days I would have worked (only five) and that I had the opportunity of other jobs but was committed to them.  I've not heard a peep since.

In their cancellation email, they did say they would reimburse me for any expense that I've already incurred and that they were sorry for the inconvenience.  Of course I understand that they don't want to bring the child over during these unsettled times but would have thought they would have acknowledged my email.

Any thoughts?  Have I rocked the boat by asking to be paid?  How long should I wait before I send another email and if I'd o that, how on earth do I word it??

Many thanks
