Debbie set up Savernake Nannies in March 2017 after over 30 years in the childcare industry. She soon realised there was a need for nannies at weddings and events in the area which led her to create Savernake Wedding/Event nannies.
WHAT IS MOBILE/EVENT CHILDCARE?
Mobile childcare is site specific provisions which allow parents to relax in the knowledge that their children are being cared for by qualified, experienced staff whilst they enjoy their day.
All our staff have undergone a registration interview where their references get followed up and certificates get verified. All staff are DBS checked. Every provision will have a designated supervisor and first aider.
We are not registered with Ofsted as the childcare we provide is exempt from registration; however we follow their guidance for best practice.
HOW DOES MOBILE CHILDCARE WORK?
A member of staff from Savernake Nannies will do a site visit prior to the event enabling us to do risk assessments, discuss with the client/venue everyones requirements. On the day we transform the room into a safe and fun environment for children aged 3 months – 10 years. We liaise directly with the venue to ensure public liability and health and safety requirements are all met.
We can provide childcare for min 3 hours to max 6 hours.
Parents can contact us separately if they require an evening wedding babysitter.
As all requirements are unique we offer a free bespoke quote.

The activity corner is set up in the same room as the wedding/event. Parents retain full responsibility for their children. We provide age appropriate toys and activites.
