Somerset and Bath families now have access to their very own Norland qualified Childcare Expert following the decision of Norland nanny, Zoe Fearnley to bring Harmony at Home, the international childcare and nannying agency, to Somerset and Bath.

Nanny Agency Somerset and Bath

Zoe Fearnley, Harmony at Home Nanny Agency Somerset and Bath Owner

Zoe trained at Norland College, which has become one of the world’s most highly regarded educational establishments specialising in early years education and childcare, since it was founded in 1892.

25 years have passed since training at the Norland College, and in that time, Zoe has immersed herself within the childcare industry. Zoe has a broad depth of experience as a Nursery Manger, Regional Nursery Manager, a Norland Nanny to private households and more recently as a Level 3 Childcare Assessor at her local college. Zoe’s experience within the childcare industry coupled with her Norland training give her a unique understanding of this elite market.

Zoe’s new nanny agency is expected to be welcomed throughout Somerset and Bath, giving a distinctive touch, and making the right matches for parents and work seekers. Zoe plans on visiting parents in their homes and will meet all her nannies and work seekers face to face, to ensure peace of mind and to give an elevated level of service.

On her new venture Zoe comments: “Using my varied experience in both Nurseries and private families, I will build strong relationships. I know first-hand what is needed from childcare staff and can deliver a match making service with a personal touch. My experience speaks volumes, I know the role from both sides! I am thrilled to be working with Harmony at Home and am very excited to have the opportunity to provide my services across Somerset and Bath.”

Launched by Frankie Gray in 2004 after qualifying as a Norland nanny, Harmony at Home has now grown into a global enterprise offering a wide spectrum of services.

On welcoming Zoe to Harmony at Home, Frankie said: “I am delighted to welcome a fellow Norlander, whose experience, ethos and skills add such value to both Harmony at Home and our Franchise Network. I wish Zoe enormous success and am pleased that we can further our professional services in South West UK with such an experienced recruiter and childcare expert.”

Get set for Snow

Snow is forecast and more wintry weather is expected!

Snow is forecast and more wintry weather is expected! Employers and Nannies, discover what needs to be considered…

Employers and Parents of Household Staff

If your nanny or housekeeper is unable to travel to work, you should advise and make them aware that unless specified differently in the employment contract:

  • In these circumstances, all time off will be unpaid unless agreed otherwise
  • The time taken off can be used as annual leave or, if preferred, the time can be made up by working additional hours.
  • Pay will paid on a discretionary basis and only in exceptional cases

It is important to be aware that if your nanny asks to leave work earlier than usual due to the weather conditions, the same conditions would apply.

If one of your nanny’s duties is to collect your children from school or drop them off in the mornings, they need to be aware of the places they can check to keep updated with last minute school closures.

For information from the school and nursery, always check:

  • The school and nursery’s website – all information is usually posted on the website to keep parents updated
  • Social Media – some schools use Twitter and Facebook to share announcements
  • The local radio stations – they usually announce school closures.
  • Your mobile phone – many schools send out text messages to inform you of the latest information

All schools and nurseries will have a procedure in place for such events. It is worth making sure your nanny is aware of what this is.

Have a snow and adverse weather plan in place!

Communication is key! Have a snow plan in place in case of any last-minute closures due to the weather. Some nannies are only employed to work before and after school. If this is the case for you, talk to your nanny to see if they can look after your children during the time they should be at school. Factors including additional pay need to be consider and agreed.

It is important to have a plan put in place for such events, as alternative options might need to be considered.

Employees and Nannies, Drive Safe

One of the most important things to remember is to only drive in the snow if the journey is crucial! Do not drive unless you have to – check the Met Office website and weather websites for snow warnings and advice. Be sure to call your employer and let them know that it’s unsafe for you to travel, don’t risk having an accident.

It is also a good idea to consider the possibility of staying over at your employer’s house. Think ahead, check the weather forecast and plan for adverse weather conditions.

Stay Safe in the Snow

Remember to ensure you keep safe and warm in the snow. The impacts of the cold weather are worse for young children, babies and those with pre-existing medical conditions.

Make sure you:

  • Stay tuned in to weather forecasts
  • Check and maintain daytime room temperatures of 21C
  • Check bedroom night time temperatures and maintain it at 18C or warmer
  • Keep warm and active and if you must go out, dress warmly and wear non-slip shoes.
