I spent wonderful 15 years in Shanghai, 3 of which saw me as a mama, often desperate to find a new nanny!
After months spent in despair, relatives flying half way through the globe to support during the search and many probation, I was so lucky to find the perfect nanny and ayi combined together, the real Mary Poppins’ kind with 30+ years of experience, to take care of my son at least for the final year in Shanghai.
Now, back in Europe, I still dream of her (and generally of finding a good, trustworthy nanny for my 2 sons!).
When she told me that she had decided to open her own nanny’s agency, to introduce to mamas in the need nannys and ayis from her circle of friends or co-workers, I could only encourage her as I know how this could be essential and lifesaving to many of the working mamas in Shanghai (please tell me about my 14hrs/day working schedule or last minutes business trips!).
So this is my hand to you, if in desperate search for a nanny/ayi, full time or part time, trustworthy and we real references, do feel free to contact me! I will be happy to share any information I can!
