In The Childcare Bible, Lucy Martin offers clear, comprehensive guidance on the world of nannies, nurseries, child minders, and much more. As an ex-solicitor, working mother of three children, and owner of a successful nanny-finding business, Lucy is excellently placed to give you the best advice on how to negotiate the childcare minefield. Having interviewed parents across the country to ensure the widest range of concerns and issues are covered, The Childcare Bible tells you everything you need to know, including: what types of childcare are available and what they each offer; how to evaluate a childcare provider or childcare setting; what financial support you can get and how it works; how to interview nannies and the relevant employment law issues; how to decide whether returning to work is right for you; and what your rights are on returning to work. With checklists and case studies, this essential guide sets out the pros and cons, costs and implications of all available options. Accompanied by a regularly updated web site containing the latest legal changes affecting childcare, The Childcare Bible makes organizing the right childcare for your family a painless task.
