I have made a monumental cock up and am now facing starting a temp part time contract in two weeks with no childcare.

I have two children- one is at school full time and the othr will be starting nursery at the school in the mornings.

I need a lovely lovel nanny to come and help me.
He or she would drop kids off and collect at lunchtime and end of school time and then entertain them park in front of TV till either Dh or I get home- about 6.30.

We are in North London and the school is about 2mins walk away.
I'd hope that the nanny would do kids' washing and a bit of tidying when the smaller child is at nursery.

Please help- I am feeling a bit sick becuase it seems my other chilcare option has fallen through sad

Have you tried Gumtree??

ilovemydog Fri 05-Sep-08 08:41:53

The Grove in Islington? The aren't a chain, so are more flexible as far as not committing to a thousand years before starting.

ilovemydog Fri 05-Sep-08 08:42:26

Oops - sorry, you needed a nanny....
