Then I think you are probably looking at £7 - £10 per hour net for live out. Live in is considerably cheaper, but it of course depends on the availability of an extra bedroom and your willingness to share your house.
You can save abit of money by avoiding agencies and hiring someone with experience rather than qualifications. But, with only one child, you will probably find that the nurser/childminder options are cheaper.

Keglin I may be able to help you here. Whereabouts in SW London do you live?
My nanny has gone part time and picks my dd (just 3) up from nursery at 4pm every day but fridays. She also works all day Thursdays so depending on which days you wanted it may work out?

Hi, thank you for your offer. I live in Kingston but will need someone to look after my daughter from 9am till 5pm Monday to Thursday so I don't think it would be suitable. Also it looks like nanny's are more expensive than childminders. Thanks for your help.

I know someone who lives in Surbiton and really wants to do a nanny share to reduce the cost. She has one child as well. If you want to CAT me, I could put you in touch with her.
Basically, if you guys pooled together on a live out nanny it would probably be affordable.
