Written by Tracey Blake

Working from home in the Corona crisis is all very well – until your children get back from school and start making constant demands for drinks, snacks and help with homework!

Luckily we’ve got hundreds of clever, engaging Student Nannies all over  London who can entertain your children while you do your conference call in peace, or help with home-learning if schools do close. For starters we’ve got a scientist, two teachers and a drama student!

It’s FREE to sign up and find a match and you can book & pay easily through the platform (all Student Nannies are over 18, sign up with a verified university email address, are interviewed and insured). There are no minimum hours.

Meet a few of our Student Nannies in London…..
