HI Nannies and Au Pairs�. Desperately looking for childcare....in Highams Park area.....seem not been able to find anybode...

We are a happy, busy family with both parents working full-time jobs. We have a girl aged 3,5. We are looking for a fun, energetic and reliable nanny/au pair / afterschool help to look after our daughter after school.

The hours would be from 3pm � 6:30pm, for a minimum of 4 days per week. I am happy to offer more hours if you would like to help with household chores. During the school holidays it would be great if you were able to offer full days.

Duties: Collecting my daughter from local school and bringing her home (its only 5 minutes walk) taking her activities like swimming, library, children centres, playing, cooking a dinner for her, hosting occasional play dates, maybe supervising a little homework and helping her get ready for bed if necessary. The position ideally would start sometime in August (although we can be flexible for the right person) and is permanent.

The ideal person for our family will:
� Be cheerful, calm and adaptable, seeing the job as helping life to run smoothly for the whole household, rather than a rigid list of tasks, Have experience with childcare
� Polish language would be an advantage, Advance English to help with reading and homework.
� Be comfortable cooking good, fresh food from scratch and cleaning thoroughly and to a high standard (if working the extended hours)
� Be able to start in August 2014, and to stay at least a year, preferably longer

Hi, I am having the same problem ie finding someone to look after my twins. Did you have any luck with finding someone? and if so, could you share your experience? I am having not a lot of luck with Childcare.co.uk.

I was told that it may be useful to ask on Mumsnet about a nanny share. But as it is extremely difficult to get a nanny am at a bit of a loss!!
