Emergency cover.

From time to time, you may have commitments which might be difficult or impossible to attend with a young child, such as:

  • training courses, tutorials.
  • Job interviews and meetings.
  • GP, hospital, optician and dental appointments.
  • funeral or memorial service.
  • hair & beauty appointments.
  • Christmas shopping and lunch date.
  • "me-time", respite care.
  • when your usual childcare provider is closed for sickness, holiday etc.
  • Jury Service.
  • Summer holiday cover.

If you find yourself in this situation I would be pleased to help where possible. There are a some consent forms to complete to ensure I meet the needs of your child and the requirements of my Ofsted Registration, so you will need to register your child with my service first. Once registered, you can then request childcare by telephone or email. Would prefer a minimum of 2 hours each session There's no deposit or retainer fees to pay, because no space is being reserved, just the normal hourly rate.

Early booking is recommended to avoid disappointment, but I will try to help out with short-notice arrangements where possible. Please note that I cannot exceed the child ratios set by my Ofsted registration and Public Liability Insurance. Ad-hoc bookings can only be accepted where I have an unfilled vacancy or if a contracted child is absent eg, for sickness or on holiday.
