An innovative new website has launched in Manchester, aimed at helping parents who are looking for flexible, fun and fulfilling solutions to childcare and students who are under financial pressure: www.studentnannies.com/manchester
The site currently has a wealth of talent available in the city, with over 300 students from Manchester University, Manchester Metropolitan University, the University of Salford and Trafford College already registered.
Parents can seek out students who share skills and interests with their children - whether its music, art, sports, science or languages.
The beauty is that these Student Nannies can help parents to manage school pick-ups, fun after-school activities, homework and tutoring all wrapped up in one!
It's free for parents and students to sign up, post a profile and see who is looking for help or work locally to them. Parents can then discover, book and pay Student Nannies through the platform.
There are two payment options - Pay As You Go, with a small platform charge every time you book, or Monthly Membership which costs £12.50/month and includes all fees for all bookings and a host of other benefits.
All Student Nannies booked and paid through the platform are insured, ID checked, background checked and interviewed.
The Manchester Crochet Club meets fortnightly to learn crochet, meet other Manchester mums, and have a good chat. Whether you're a complete beginner or a seasoned pro, everyone is welcome to come along!
