Coronavirus (COVID-19) Update & Your Childcare
Updated 6th April 2020
For us here at Happy Nest, we are fortunate to be able to work from home. This means that we remain open for business.
Although the high level of uncertainty during this time brings into question the urgency of hiring a nanny, if this is an option you are considering for the eventual return to ‘normal’, then we do encourage you to reach out. The best line of contact is on 0800 955 8868.
We would also like to reassure you that we continue to offer private postnatal services to families who seek urgent, and what we deem to be very ‘essential’, support. Our postnatal carers are self-employed, and work independently, in-keeping with current Government guidelines.
If you are an employer of a nanny and seek counsel as to the current advisory regarding ‘essential workers’ and other similar matters, please feel free to contact us directly to discuss options available. We will be able to advise you of our specific procedures in relation to your childcare requirements.
If you are a nanny or childcare professional and currently looking for work, we welcome you to register with us. Although please note, at this time we have limited jobs available. Alternatively, you can sign up for our newsletter, and we’ll keep you up to date with new jobs as they become available.
We are passionate about the support we provide to nannies to protect their rights to fair work, and fair treatment within the nanny industry. Therefore, if you seek support in regards to your current employment, please get in touch. We will be happy to provide advice where possible, and to put in you touch with the necessary channels.
Or for enquiries regarding the Government policy on essential work, and guidance on self-isolation, or furloughing, please visit these resources here.
Thank you for your patience and understanding through this period of uncertainty. We wish you health and happiness and trust you and your loved ones remain safe and well.
