Proxy Parent

A Proxy Parent is essentially a live-in nanny who looks after your children 24-hours a day. This usually happens for a set period of time, whether it be several days or weeks.

They will stand in your shoes and allow your children’s routine to continue as it would when you are there. This means no disruption to your child’s education, trips or activities.

For complete peace of mind while you’re away, a Proxy Parent will take responsibility for the running of your home - including the care of family pets.

All Sunrise Nannies are:

- Childcare professionals

- Interviewed and vetted by our owner, Carly

- DBS checked

- Continually referenced checked
