Hello and welcome, my name is Debbie,

In 1985 as a Childcare-trained NNEB Nursery Nurse and after a wonderful Nanny career in London (Chelsea, and Hampstead) I was government-licensed and inspected annually to run this caring and bespoke Evening Babysitter Agency.

Based in Bromley South London I have placed with a minimum of 2 weeks' notice hundreds of pleasant and reliable Childcare-Qualified and Childcare-work-experienced Babysitters.

We offer Babysitters a free service and Parents more peace of mind about whom they choose.

Finding a Babysitter cannot be rushed:

  • This is one of the biggest decisions a Parent can make to pass a precious Baby or Child (ren) across to a stranger.

  • Sadly we know of minor and serious issues that happened via online-only businesses such as Facebook, community social media forums, or childcare.co.uk/bubble because people are NOT spoken to, interviewed, or reference checked.

  • Such websites may offer appealing quick and even same-day Childcare and be free or cheap to use BUT if use your Child and home is put at risk.

  • Devious and dishonest people with varied motives advertise themselves so because unvetted it is easy to display a fake CV of Childcare work.​​

  • Monday to Thursday: £12 - £14 ph.

  • Friday, Saturday, and Sunday: £14 - £16 ph.

  • Evening rates start from 6.30 pm.

  • With a minimum 3-hour booking and thereafter paid by the 1/4 hour.

  • Most Babysitters agree with LMMs' view that the rate they charge has to be affordable for a Parent to budget with other costs on top i.e. restaurant, theatre. Most Parents go out on average twice a month.

How our Service Works:

We email a 5-minute form to complete and read to check information is similar to the telephone discussion. If so invoice for an advance paid and final fee of £75 (valid for 6 months). We earn our fee as this includes an:

  • Anonymous Job Vacancy Advert displayed on LMM Facebook (friend request to Debbie Masters Misses) and varied local community social media forums. 

  • Childcarers interested in your vacancy telephone us to apply and to save time we briefly explain the role to check suitable for and their Gross per hour rate expectation is within a Parent confided to us maximum gross ph budget.

  • With that Childcarers permission, we telephone a Parent if we believe may suit to explain their Childcare work experience and Gross per hour rate aim for. 

 

The £99 fee includes 2 free CV Reports on Childcarers you ask to interview. We state:

  • Their telephone number for a Parent to directly contact within 24 hours to arrange the time within 3 days of a 40-minute family interview and give home address.

  • Against each Childcare employment job a Yes / No / Applied so you know which references we checked.

 

Once you receive 2 free CV Reports:

 

  • You pay a further £25 for each CV Report if you need to interview more Childcarers.

  • The number of CV Reports sent is recorded so if for any reason you do not receive 2 free CV Reports you can return to us within 6 months and the above service terms with no registration fee are in place again.

 

The Evening Babysitter Interview:

  • During - discuss the duties and Gross rate as contract agreements are made solely between a Parent and Childcarer.

  • After all interviews - please email LMM whether progressing them (or not) to be your family Nanny with the agreed gross hourly rate pay so we can check if they are truly happy to accept or let them know you are not offering the work. There is no further placement fee.​

Babysitters - below we also anonymously advertise you for Parents to view and to match you well from the start state the:

 

  • Midweek days, start, finish times, and approx number of Saturdays pmth you ideally seek.

  • Last year we face-to-face interviewed you.

  • The number of years worked in Childcare which determines the rate we advise you to charge.

 

Parents contact us to learn more about your experience and the hourly rate you seek.

We practice equal opportunity and aim to save everyone time.

We offer a fabulous Daily Nanny Service for just £75 using the same system as above, please click here to visit our Nanny website.

We were Beckenham High St office-based for 17 years until after the pandemic and before for 20 years in a Croydon shop (I bought) where in 1998 I started varied training/ talks such as working as a Nanny, meningitis and British Red Cross First Aid Nanny only Courses. Annually I hired Beckenham Civic Hall for Nannies and the Children they cared for to do a Nanny Christmas Cake Afternoon and did a Summer Teddy Bear Picnic in Kelsey Park Beckenham.​ 2024 for me is about helping Parents with a low-cost Nanny Service so they do not feel their only option is the internet. Unusual for a 38-year Employment Agency business we are more interested in having jobs to offer our Babysitters who do not enjoy or feel safe online connecting with strangers either and not in charging Parents we place with high fees.
