INTRODUCTION

For the purposes of these Terms and Conditions, persons booked to provide childcare services through Nanny Dream are referred to as Nanny/Nannies and persons who contract with Nanny Dream to obtain childcare through Nanny Dream are referred to as Parents/Clients.

Nanny Dream acts as an introduction and booking agency and is a technology-driven service that connects Parents with thoroughly vetted and experienced Nannies.

Nanny Dream does not employ the nannies booked by Parents. Nanny Dream undertakes to ensure that all nannies on the register have been carefully selected and have demonstrated satisfactory previous experience in childcare.

AGREEMENT

These terms and conditions shall represent a legally binding contract between the client (the “Parents/Clients”) and NannDream Limited (the “Agency”).  The online, in writing, or by email instruction by the Parents to the Agency to facilitate the provision of suitable nannies to provide services, for contact or interview or arrangement of interviews shall constitute acceptance by the Parents of these terms and conditions. 

The Agreement between the Agency and the Client, incorporating these Terms and Conditions, shall only come into force when the Agency confirms the acceptance of the Client’s instructions and brief online, in writing, or by email to the Client and/or the Client verbally, online, in writing or by email instructs the Agency to submit suitable nanny for a defined Engagement. 

The Agency reserves the right to vary the terms of this Agreement and/or the way it provides the Services by way of written notification to the Client who shall consent to such changes (such consent shall not be unreasonably withheld or delayed) stating the date such amendments will take effect.     

This Agreement together with our terms and conditions for making online purchases, privacy notices and any schedules (which are expressly incorporated herein), constitutes the entire Agreement between the parties and supersedes all previous agreements, understandings and arrangements between them, whether written or oral in respect of its subject matter. 

The Client acknowledges that it has not entered into this Agreement in reliance on, and shall have no remedies in respect of, any representation or warranty that is not expressly set out in this Contract. 

The Client shall not have any claim for innocent or negligent misrepresentation on the basis of any statement in this Contract.  Nothing in this Agreement purports to limit or exclude any liability for fraud. 

The Client acknowledges that he/she understands exactly what is included in the Services and he /she is satisfied that the Services are suitable and satisfactory for his requirements. 

CANCELLATION OF AGREEMENT 

 

The Client may cancel this agreement before the commencement of the services. Accordingly, the Agency is under no obligation to commence provision of the Services until it confirms and communicates the provision of the services by email, text orally or through any other mode of communication in line with the Agency’s Terms and Conditions for Online purchases.

 

RELATIONSHIP OF THE PARTIES 

Nothing in this Agreement shall create a partnership or agency or the relationship of employer and employee, or other relationship between any of the parties, other than the contractual relationship expressly provided for in this Agreement. 

The Agency acts as an intermediary which introduces nannies and as a booking agency providing carefully vetted experienced nannies to prospective clients and vice versa. The Agency has no part, contractual or otherwise, in any arrangement between the Client and the Applicant and is not an agent in law for any person. 

Neither party shall have, nor represent that it has, any authority to make any commitment on the other party’s behalf, except as expressly agreed in this Contract. 

Whilst every effort is taken to screen each nanny, the Agency cannot accept responsibility for any loss, damage or inconvenience suffered by the Client or any loss for which the Client may become liable as a result before any introduction by the Agency.

It is the Client’s responsibility to check that his home insurance covers them in the event of any accident or injury caused by the acts and omissions of the nanny. 

Whilst the Agency endeavours to match a suitable nanny to the Client’s requirements, no warranty is given by the Agency as to the character, honesty, age, suitability or capability of the nanny although the Agency will always check a minimum of two references, DBA check and carry out a personal interview. 

The Agency warrants that it has the all necessary authority to perform its obligations set out in this Contract. 

Parents acknowledge that no amount of reference checking can provide a guarantee of future performance by individual nannies. Nanny Dream cannot be held accountable for negligence on the part of a nanny who has provided Nanny Dream with satisfactory references except where reasonable care has not been taken in the reference checking process or where Nanny Dream has failed to take note of other information received concerning a nanny’s past performance.

References

References given by nannies are verified with the referees verbally as Nanny Dream believes referees give a more full, frank, and candid picture in discussion than they would if asked to provide information in writing. For this reason, the Agency cannot provide copies of written references. However, as an online business, the Agency has requested the clients to leave their feedback on the services provided and for each nanny. These reviews may provide a glimpse of how we as an Agency operate and nannies conduct their business.

OUR VETTING PROCEDURE

The Agency shall take reasonable endeavours to introduce to the Client, nannies which the Agency considers suitable to provide services to the Client. Our vetting process includes as follows:

-An online or physical hand-written application submitted by the nanny.

-Identity checks by the sight of government-issued documents and records supporting the applicant’s identity.

– Further Identity and Right to work checks with the Home Office.

-An interview.

-DBS check on DBS updated Service

-A visual check of the nanny DBS certificate (formerly CRB check), to confirm no adverse feedback.

-A visual check of the nanny’s training certificate such as Health and Safety, first aid, colic training etc.

-Verification of childcare references.

-The application and notes of the references received are reviewed, approved, and signed off by a director of the company before each nanny is admitted to the Nanny Dream register.

The Agency does not give any warranty as to the accuracy of the information supplied to them by the nanny and which is then transferred to the Client. 

The Agency takes reasonable steps to ensure that both the nanny and the Client are aware of requirements imposed by law or professional bodies to enable the nanny to work for the Client.

 Time for commencement shall not be of the essence of the Agreement and the Agency shall not be held liable for any loss, costs, damages, charges or expenses caused directly or indirectly by any delay in the Services. 

BOOKING PROCESS

A booking is defined as a scheduled start and finishes time within 24 hours, a day or week depending upon the service selected by the Client.

On each booking, Nanny Dream charges a booking fee of a minimum of £20 for finding a nanny for the Clients for each day. The exact amount charged as an agency fee varies depending upon the service selected and the number of days it is booked for. For more details on our services please visit www.nannydream.co.uk. A booking fee falls due once the booking has been filled and the name of the nanny is confirmed to the parent.

BOOKING REQUEST

Booking requests can be made through our websites, www.nannydream.co.uk or by calling us at 0044-203 633 1107 at least two hours, 4 hours or a day or week before the commencement of the service depending upon the service selected by the Client. The Service must be paid in full with a debit card, credit card, PayPal, Google and Apple pay.

Clients/Parents are responsible for providing all the necessary details to necessary to for booking a nanny. Nanny Dream is not responsible for any omissions or errors on behalf of the Parents/Clients.

Nanny Dream reserves the right to decline or cancel any booking, at any time, without reason or without providing an alternative, and issue a full refund.

BOOKING ASSIGNMENT AND CONFIRMATION

Once a booking request is submitted, Nanny Dream assigns the booking to the selected nanny subject to her availability and our Terms and Conditions for Online Purchase.

The Parent may request specific nannies, but the Parent accepts that nannies on the Nanny Dream register are free agents and not employees of Nanny Dream and Nanny Dream is not able to require any particular individual to work at any time or for any particular Parent or Clients.

Wherever possible Nanny Dream will ensure that the Parent’s bookings are offered to their preferred nanny first, however, if the preferred nanny is not available for the entirety of the booking, Nanny Dream will automatically assign the booking to another qualified, available nanny but will discuss first with the Client/Parent before allocating a nanny to the client.

When a booking is assigned, a booking confirmation message will be sent to the Parent/Client via text message and/or email.

Nanny Dream does provide the option for the Parent to meet or interview a nanny preferably by Zoom or through a Video Call. A Client, upon request, may speak to a nanny subject to her availability and through a suitable mode preferably through a video call.

If the Clients/Parents prefer to meet a nanny before a booking, this must be arranged in the form of another paid booking on the site.

FEES

The Agency charges a flat booking fee of £20 per booking. The minimum grace period required is 4 hours for a Day Nanny, 10 Hours for Night Nanny, 24 Hours for Maternity and 24 hours Nanny. The prices charged by each Nanny are displayed on our website and are on top of the Agency Fee of £20 charged by the Agency.

However, holiday and peak time pricing may vary (“peak price”), and if a higher charge applies the peak price will be displayed on the booking screen at the time of booking.

There are no joining, membership, or booking fees.

We reserve the right to make changes to our prices at any time.

All changes will be reflected on the site and on the payment details screen before charges are incurred.

All relevant fees accompany these terms and conditions or are notified to the Client at the time of registration, and where applicable are subject to VAT. 

PAYMENTS

Parents are responsible for paying Nanny Dream through the Nanny Dream website using an accepted method of payment. Nanny Dream will collect payment details at the time of the booking request, but no monies shall be charged until after the completion of the booking.

If you change the start time or expected return time for a booking, no additional fee is payable if the booking has not yet been filled and confirmed to you by email.

However, if the booking has already been filled, an administration fee of £10 for online changes, or £ 11 for changes made via phone or email will be incurred, provided your booked nanny is able to accommodate the change requested and has not started the journey.

If your booked nanny is unable to accommodate the change and Nanny Dream is unable to find you an alternative nanny, a further booking fee will be payable once we are able to refill your booking.

If the nanny is required to stay past the agreed/booked time, Parents must pay a pro-rated amount of the booking in 15-minute increments (to be rounded up to 15 minutes). For the avoidance of doubt, this means that for example, if the nanny stays 5 minutes extra, the charge will be for 15 minutes, if the nanny stays 40 minutes extra, the charge will be for 45 minutes.

This additional pro-rated amount for the extra time shall be charged to the Parent once the booking is complete via the same payment method used at the time of the booking. It is the Parent’s responsibility to notify Nanny Dream of the extra time. If the Parent fails to inform Nanny Dream, Nanny Dream will rely on the nanny to provide this information.

Parents must not pay the nanny directly either for the booking or for staying late. Any additional amount owed must be paid to Nanny Dream directly through the Nanny Dream website.

Payment processing services for nannies on Nanny Dream are provided by PayPal and Stripe and are subject to the rules of the UK’s financial sector and Consumer Act 2015

The payments are processed by the Third parties, PayPal and Stripe, the payment data is not stored by Nannydream Limited. It is held by the third parties who are regulated by FCA.

CANCELLATIONS OR CHANGES TO BOOKING

Before booking commences

Nanny Dream will not be held responsible for a nanny’s availability/nonavailability. If a nanny should become unavailable after a booking has been confirmed, Nanny Dream will endeavour to find a suitable replacement and if one cannot be found, Nanny Dream reserves the right to decline the booking and issue a full refund without assuming any liability for the impact this might have on the Parent’s plans.

If the Parent wishes to extend the original booking or make any changes to the booking, they must communicate these changes directly to Nanny Dream before the booking begins. If a nanny cannot accommodate the change, Nanny Dream will endeavour to find a suitable alternative nanny.

All cancellation requests must be submitted at least 24 hours before a booking commences in case of Maternity and 24 Hours Nanny. In the case of Day Nany, and Night Nany before the Nanny commences her journey or within 30 minutes of the original booking. There is no charge for such cancellations.

However, any cancellations for maternity and twenty-four hours Nanny made less than 24 before the booking commences will result in 50% deductions in the total fee paid including the agency fee. For all other services, a flat 50% of the Total amount paid will be deducted and the remaining amount refunded if cancelled after 30 minutes and before the commencement of the service.

Once a Nanny is at the parent’s home to deliver the services no refund is made.

After booking commences

In the event that a nanny fails to arrive at the appointed time, Nanny Dream will use its best endeavours to find another nanny for the Parent.

If it is not possible to find a suitable replacement, Nanny Dream shall issue a full refund for the booking and assumes no further liability for any impact this may have on the Parent’s plans.

Once a booking has commenced, any changes must be communicated and agreed upon with the nanny directly, however, no monies should be paid directly to the nanny for any extra time.

Parents must inform Nanny Dream of the overtime and Nanny Dream will process the charge via the same payment method used at the time of the booking request.

Releasing a nanny earlier than the originally booked time will not entitle a Parent to a refund for that time.

TRANSPORTATION

Nannies arrange their transportation; therefore, Parents are not responsible for providing or paying for any transportation.

However, Parents can agree with the nanny directly and can arrange for or pay for a nanny taxi or transportation directly to the nanny.

The Agency assumes no liability to the Parent, or to the nanny, or any third party for any transport arrangements.

Complaint Resolution / Grievance Policy

The management and directors of Nannydream will do their best to make the employment/self-employment a good experience. If for any reason, a nanny or employee is unhappy or dissatisfied with the work, work conditions, or management policies, they should contact our management to discuss the problem. If no satisfactory solution can be reached, the Directors shall be advised of the situation for resolution.

We recognise that grievances may arise in the normal course of work and are fully committed to ensuring that any such issues that arise can be discussed openly and dealt with satisfactorily and promptly and in line with Employment Rights Act 1996 and Equality Act 2010. This policy provides a mechanism for a Nanny or employee to raise a grievance relating to his employment and self-employed contract they have with us. This may be about the job, working conditions, training, complaints, fair treatment etc.

All nannies and employees are encouraged to raise issues informally/formally in the normal course of their work with the management. This should be done as soon as the issues arise. We believe that this is normally the most effective way to resolve matters speedily. When a problem or issue arises that cannot be dealt with in the above manner, the formal grievance procedure should be invoked.

If a nanny or employee is not happy with the response received through the informal stage or wishes to raise a grievance formally in the first instance, they should raise the issue in writing with our management. They must set out the nature of the grievance and make it clear that the formal grievance procedure is being invoked. A Conflict Resolution Worksheet and/or an Employee Deficiency Report will be available to staff.

A meeting will be arranged with the nanny or employee to discuss the grievance. If necessary, more than one meeting will be held. A decision on the grievance will be confirmed in writing within 10 working days of the grievance meeting being held. If the nanny or employee is not happy with the outcome after this process, they may appeal the decision in writing to the Directors. The decision at this stage will be final.

All grievances will be dealt with confidentially and no nanny or employee will be penalised for raising a grievance in good faith. All meetings and outcomes will be documented, and a copy will be given to the nanny or employee. A copy will be placed on the personnel file.

DATA PROCESSING 

The Agency shall, in relation to any Personal Data (as defined in the Data Protection Legislation) processed in connection with the performance by the Agency of its obligations under this agreement:

Where the Agent is relying on laws of a member of the European Union or European Union law as the basis for processing Personal Data, the Agent/Agency shall promptly notify the Client of this before performing the processing required by the Applicable Laws unless those Applicable Laws prohibit the Agent from so notifying the Client; 

-The Agency will ensure that it has in place appropriate technical and organisational measures to protect against unauthorised or unlawful processing of Personal Data and against accidental loss or destruction of, or damage to, Personal Data, appropriate to the harm that might result from the unauthorised or unlawful processing or accidental loss, destruction or damage and the nature of the data to be protected, having regard to the state of technological development and the cost of implementing any measures (those measures may include, where appropriate, pseudonymisation and encrypting Personal Data, ensuring confidentiality, integrity, availability and resilience of its systems and services, ensuring that availability of and access to Personal Data can be restored in a timely manner after an incident, and regularly assessing and evaluating the effectiveness of the technical and organisational measures adopted by it);
