We are a premium childcare booking service providing flexible childcare sessions for the general public of London. We understand the demands of the city and stand by the philosophy that parents and nannies should be working together as a team in promoting the best outcome for the their child's health and well-being. We can adapt to your parental style or are happy to offer suggestions based on our extensive experience working with children ranging from infants to adolescents. We aim to keep our prices fair whilst also promoting better paid services to our hard working professional nannies.
Our goal is to create and promote higher childcare standards for All children in London. We aim to set a trend between all parents and childcare providers with a brand everyone can trust.
Flexi Pop-Ins became a Limited Company in 2016 by the founder and director Melissa Clarke. Melissa has been looking after children in a variety of settings for over 15 years. She is a licensed psychotherapist and counsellor and founded the company when she spotted a gap in the market for flexible childcare in the borough of Hackney. During this time she was working on single contracts with families whilst undergoing her studies and had quickly gained a reputation in the local area. Parents from the creative industries started calling upon her to step in for childcare help during off peak hours. As she is also a musician, her reputation for this line of service within the sector grew rapidly. Within 6 months, the project grew. A community of experienced nannies that she knew from attending local Hackney Run playgroups had gotten in touch hoping to be a part of her personal self employed booking system.Word had spread, and parents from the borough of Islington working in Law and medical industries started getting in touch requesting extended session bookings to meet their long working hours. Before long, stay at home parents started using the company to offer themselves a break or attend their appointments. We are now finding many parents from leading digital media companies taking a real interest in what we do as well as using our services. We have managed to extend our market towards Canary Wharf, Greenwich and Putney and hope to continue to provide services through the whole of London.
All our nannies are of different age ranges and are trained to present themselves well. Many of our nannies have extended skills such as maternity, teaching, and special needs, with some carrying degrees in child psychology. We also welcome nannies who can think outside the box offering the potential for new services and we expect them to be confident communicators. It is of key importance to us that we form strong successful relationships with our parents in order to uphold the status of our brand. To show our commitment to the profession even further, we have become Corporate Members of BAPN.
