What our parents say...
We judge ourselves by the feedback we receive from you
"This service takes the stress out of finding temporary childcare. You know that the agencies they use will have suitable and checked candidates."
"Juggling work and childcare is a challenge at the best of times - not least when your existing childcare falls down at short notice. I have used the emergency nanny service around 6 times this year - and it has been a lifesaver. The booking system is very efficient and I have really been impressed with the standard of nannies supplied to us. I would have no hesitation in recommending the service. "
Siobhan booked a nanny
"Alleviates stress of trying to juggling work and family life when you feel you sometimes let one or both down. Could come to work without disrupting the meetings and work already planned for that day and knowing the children were well cared for. Was so surprised at how easy the booking process was and the speed of response was fantastic! Two happy children taken care of and one very happy relieved mummy could go to work."
Rebecca booked a nursery
"My youngest son was sent home from nursery with a tummy bug. I managed to work from home with him for the afternoon but we needed help for the next day and grandparents were unavailable and too far away! Within an hour of completing the form MFC called with the details of a nanny. We spoke with her that evening to discuss our son's routine and when she arrived she was experienced and professional and I felt happy leaving him with her whilst my wife and I were at work. Without the backup one of us would have had to take a day off which was really not practical for either of us that day."
Peter booked a nanny
"Excellent service! Used on a couple of occasions now and it's so valuable to me being a full time working parent. Cannot recommend enough!"
Lyndsey booked a childminder
"Emergency Childcare is invaluable in helping out in those situtations when normal child care options are not available. I would end up taking much more time off, if the service wasn't available."
Emma booked a nursery
"Quick professional service. Any advice they are there to support and help. I was in a difficult period and I was so thankful to the help and support given to me trying to find close by and cheap service. They look at my info and went away and phoned around for me. I don't know what I would have done without this service."
