On the day
The crèche team will aim to arrive 30 mins to an hour prior to the event to set up and transform the room into an entertaining and inviting space.
Wedding nannies will familiarise themselves of nearby facilities, toilets and of emergency procedures and exit routes., ensuring the pre chosen room is safe and secure.
What information do NannyTap need to know about my child in advance?
On the day of the crèche service, we ask for child/ren to be signed in & out and notified at the beginning of the creche of any allergies, medical illnesses & SEN. This is to ensure we know as much as possible about your child and to ensure we deliver the right care. We require consent for intimate care ie/ nappy changes, toileting, changing of clothes and to act on your behalf in an emergency situation.
Who can pick up my child?
The person/s who brings your child at the crèche must be the person who collects them. This can be up to two named adults. Your child will need to be signed in and out of the crèche for safeguarding.
How do I know my child(ren) will be in safe hands?
NannyTap nannies are working professionals, fully vetted, which means they all have:
Child Care Experience
Current up to date DBS/ Check (police check)
will hold a First Aid certificate
arrive uniform provided, ID badged
How many staff will look after my child/ren?
NannyTap takes guidance from Ofsted ratio requirements. I take in consideration ages and children’s specific needs. Children under 12 months May require 1:1 Nanny (to be discussed on consultation)
Do child carers or mobile crèches need to be registered with Ofsted?
Under current legislation the childcare I provide is exempt from Ofsted registration. This is because the child care happens with parents close by or on same premises. NannyTap Crèches' are in line with Ofsted standards and comply with these at all times. Each Nanny is a trained professional working or studying in the child care sector, for eg/ teacher, teaching assistant, early years practitioner etc holding qualifications, training & a DBS.
Do you carry out risk assessments?
NannyTap Crèches carries out a full risk assessment of the areas to be used for children and agrees with the venue if changes need to be made. If a venue requires risk assessment this is completed in advance.
What insurance does NannyTap hold?
NannyTap Ltd holds public and employers liability insurance.
What space is required for a mobile crèche?
