Nursery recommendations for one week!

Hello All,

I'm so glad I found this space and I hope I can get some help!

I will be visiting London in September (for work) and I am looking for a good nursery/day care (near Regents Park or Hyde Park) that will accept to accommodate my son (2.5 years old) for one week (Sept 7-11).

So far I found a nursery that is charging £100.00 registration fee and £385.10 for the week. This seems a bit pricey shock. Is this the average charge? hmm

I called many nurseries and most of them did not accept to accommodate my son for only one week.

Does anyone know of any good nurseries that can accept my requirements that you can recommend?

Thank you so much in advance for your help flowers

I manage a nursery and wouldn't accept your child for just a week
We have to do loads of paperwork and assign them a key person
Not to mention how hard it might be settling a child only for hem to leave at the end of the week
You could try a nanny agency

I agree with Insancerre. I'm a nursery teacher and we wouldn't accept your child for a week.

I think you need to look into getting a temporary nanny.

So they are asking about £100 per day - for, lets say, 10 hours per day if its a full day nursery. That's £10 per hour. To take children for just one week they have to keep a space open and might not fill it in other weeks and they have to do all the paperwork etc and more likely to deal with a crying non-settling child. Doesn't seem unreasonable to me. You'd pay more for a nanny.
