LTR has to handle many different requests from its guests and often childcare is high on the list. Especially in rural areas, finding good temporary childcare is not easy and obviously parents are rightly anxious about who is looking after their kids. We now enjoy working with Michaela Drake, based in Hertfordshire, who can source the most wonderful girls to look after children during family holidays in the UK.
Her company ‘my travelling nanny’ has built up a large database of professional nannies with all sorts of skills. They can provide swimming teachers, speech therapists, maternity nurses, skiing nannies or simply a well qualified childcare expert to look after your children, whilst you get on with enjoying other activities. The nannies are all at least 19 years old, fluent in English, with the current enhanced CRB check, at least one year’s experience and first aid training. A lot of trouble is taken to match the right nanny with the right family and the company offers a flexible, efficient service with no ‘fixed’ packages.
