Best places to holiday with kids in the UK? For tried-and-tested Mumsnetter tips, read our Travel Reviews
apologies if this is the wrong MN forum or if the question is not permitted (?)...:we're going to london next week and would need a babysitter for a couple of hours on friday evening (DS1 is almost 5, DS2 is 1 year old). there must be loads of ladies from the london area on MN surely...?
Almost certainly! I guess the only problem being that you don't know who they are....and whilst they are probably lovely people, there is no way of knowing.There are a number of agencies (some like Sitters who have been around for years.) They have experienced staff with full criminal records checks and references. They also charge quite a bit.....
I suggest you call one of the many Nanny Agencies in London many of whom can offer one-time babysitting or use Sitters.co.uk, I've used the latter and their staff are all thoroughly checked. Or, if you are staying in a hotel they should have an agency they normally use.www.bestbear.co.uk is a good place to find a Nanny Agency.
