Health and Safety

Babysitting at hotels is currently unregulated. In order to combat this Butterfly Nannies are working closely with key partners to apply stringent standards including health and safety and risk assessments to this extremely important area of childcare. In the past unreliable listening services and under qualified staff have been operational, however Butterfly Nannies have replaced these methods with professional qualified carers.
