Norland is delighted to announce the launch of its partnership with the brand-new childcare booking platform, Marvellous Babysitting.

Founded by Norland graduate Ella Trigwell, Marvellous Babysitting helps parents easily book our trusted students and graduates (known as Norland Nannies or Norlanders) for short term, flexible childcare and babysitting jobs via a simple and convenient mobile app.

Fully qualified Norlanders have completed their Norland training and will have significant experience in a range of early years settings and with families. Norland Nannies don’t just monitor your children for safety but can cater to any childcare needs including preparing nutritious meals, helping with homework, taking care of bath and bedtime, and even providing parents with expert advice in areas like sleep training and weaning.

Norland students will have completed part of their undergraduate degree and integrated practical diploma training.

All Norland students and graduates available through the app will have an up to date 12-hour Paediatric First Aid certificate and Enhanced DBS (Disclosure and Barring Service) check.

Dr Janet Rose, Principal of Norland, said: “We are delighted to partner with Marvellous Babysitting to offer flexible and reliable short-term childcare to families from trusted Norland students and graduates via a safe and secure booking platform. Fully qualified Norlanders are highly sought after –we currently have 10 permanent jobs for every Norlander seeking one through the Norland Agency – which means many families miss out. Through Marvellous, more families will now be able to easily book short-term childcare from our students and graduates, making Norland’s expertise more accessible for all.”

Marvellous Babysitting founder and Norlander, Ella Trigwell, said: “Our new partnership with Norland will help us enable more families to access Norland Nannies for short-term flexible childcare. As a Norlander, I experienced first-hand the importance of Norland’s rigorous training when looking after children and the reassurance that it provides to parents. I believe that every child deserves outstanding care, even if it’s just for an occasional evening or a single day. Marvellous, in partnership with Norland, now provides a way for busy families to quickly and easily access the trusted, quality childcare they need.’’

The Marvellous Babysitting app is now available for families based in and around the Bath area. If you are interested in signing up, please email your name, postcode and a contact number to Ella at [email protected] to receive your unique sign-up code. You can download the app from the Apple Appstore and Google Play Store.
