We are now in week 4 of lockdown due to the Coronavirus hitting the UK. Although it is a very testing time for all we have manager to help many NHS workers with childcare throughout this difficult time with out 50% discount as we here at Baby Steps think EVERY key worker is nothing short of a-m-a-z-i-n-g . We want to take this opportunity to send positive thoughts to all who may be struggling and our thoughts are with any families who have been personally affected by Corona virus. Its business as usual here at BSN apart from the small tweak of our lovely team working from home rather than at our office in South London, be assured our quality of service is just as high even if we are working from the kitchen table at this time!
BABY STEPS TURNS 2
I can't quite believe it has been a whole year since we were blowing out the candles on our first birthday cake. This year has completely flown by and has been by far our busiest year yet. We have had so many fantastic new clients we have helped throughout this year and also have the joy of working with lots of local nurseries to help with their childcare needs! We also now have a brilliant dream team of 3 to provide the perfect service we possibly can. Lets see what this year has to hold!
NEW TEAM MEMBER!
It is a very exciting day today as the fantastic Katie is joining our baby steps team, she is coming onboard as our out of hours consultant and will be dealing with all calls and applications which come in after our office hours. Katie will be a port of call for all new clients looking for a new Nanny and uses her years of Recruitment experience to pro-actively help with the search of a new Nanny. Katie also has a very cute bub herself (who is 1!) so also completely understands what parents will look for in a Nanny. We are super looking forward to having Katie on board :)
ITS OUR 1ST BIRTHDAY!
Today marks a year that we begun the amazing journey that is Baby Steps. We have grown from a team of one to a strong team of three and I couldn't be prouder of what we have achieved. There has been lots of late nights and early mornings but there has also been a lot of laughs and smiles. We have met so many lovely nannies and clients and we can't wait for what the next 365 days will hold!
Keep an eye out for the November issue of the NCT's monthly magazine as our director Lou has written an article on the debate of nursery VS Nanny. If you are in the process of finding the perfect childcare for your child please give it a read and you can weigh up the pro's and con's of both options. If you do give it a read please do let us know what you think and any feedback is always hugely appreciated!!
TEDDY BEARS PICNIC
On Sunday Baby steps proudly sponsored NCT annual teddy bears picnic, we had the pleasure of meeting and tattooing hundreds of gorgeous kiddo's and met with lots of other brands/companies. Dionne and Debbie spent the day raising money in support of NCT, without NCT hundreds of parents and babies would not have the support they need pre and post-partum. We also want to thank our 2 helpers Gem and Gab for helping out with the day!
-- Events like this are so important for independent business' like us and we appreciate every single person who came and said hello, bought a 50p tattoo or took a goody bag, we already can't wait for next year!

"Lou and her team were super quick and professional in helping us in our search for our nanny. They listened carefully and attentively to our brief, only sent candidates who were exactly on brief and throughout the process extremely professional. We didn't end up hiring through Baby Steps, but would certainly recommend them and we'd use them again."
James Brown recommends Baby Steps Nannies Ltd
"We have used Baby Steps Nannies to find our first nanny. In short, the service offered has been excellent. The agency has provided us with a number of excellent candidates and been very patient with us as we took our time to identify one that we were happy with. We wanted a part-time nanny, and the agency was able to find somebody who is able to work the very particular hours we need. They have been very pleasant to deal with also and extremely professional. Really excellent!"

"I found the team at Baby Steps to be very informative and professional and would recommend them to anyone seeking a nanny. They had time for a personal phone call to talk through what I was looking for, and guide me through the process of finding and employing a nanny (crucial for a first-timer like me). Their frees were very reasonable compared to other agencies I spoke to, and they were proactive and helpful in finding nanny options for me".

The quality of candidates we interviewed were very good and we felt our requirements were being reflected in the potential employees we were meeting with.
