For the last 5 years Mortimer Nannies are delighted to have been invited to organise the official childcare at various festivals including Somersault, Vintage, Wilderness and Jamie Oliver's Big Feastival. We were proud to organise Nannies and Volunteers who helped care for the children of festival goers both privately and in a fantastic toy filled yurt. All proceeds raised were donated to some fantastic charities (see below), and a great time was had by all our children, helpers and parents (who could go and have a few hours to let loose without the children). This year we will be on the road at Kelvedon Bash, Standon Calling and Wilderness.

What the Parents Say.........

“Thank you so much for looking after B and W at Wilderness.
They had a great time with you. It was a great service and we were so happy with it. “

“We were really impressed with your service. Firstly, that you took information on the
children beforehand. The fact you were not phased that S is autistic, which made it more
reassuring for us to leave him. We also liked the ratio of carers to children. I know our
friends thought that too and it made it easier to leave them and enjoy a few hours off!
You seemed to have made the space comfy and full of toys and the kids loved the films!
Please don't scrimp on any of the above next year. We were really pleased and are
thinking we might also take a few hours off one afternoon next year. We would definitely
use your service again. I hope you come back next year!”

"The children really enjoyed their time at Wilderness and especially with yourselves.
It was lovely to return to the yurt and see the children playing so happily outside with the staff and for F to bring home a painting. We hope to go again next year, so if you are there, we hope to see you again.”

“We were really really happy with the babysitting services over the weekend. The kids had a brilliant time and it was clear that they both felt very comfortable there and enjoyed themselves. Well done. It can’t have been an easy task. Thanks again for all your hard work. I hope the weekend was successful in raising good money for your chosen charity and that you all also enjoyed the weekend”

“The girls absolutely loved their time with you - one of the highlights of the weekend apparently - so thank you for that.”

“I am still recovering but we had a great time at Wilderness thanks. We were very happy with the babysitters who gave us the freedom to enjoy the festival and they got on so well with the kids. We plan to be back next year and I will be in touch long ahead of time to book the sitters again.”

“first class, couldn't be happier!!”

“ I was having some apprehensive thoughts about how safe T would be, and how busy the facilities would be, and I was worried if she could just wander out of the tent etc etc ( you've probably heard all these worries before). Also T was fast asleep when we dropped her off, so I then was concerned that she may wake up in a strange place with new people and be upset....well we dropped her off, it was quite busy as to be expected at the changeover time, but your nannies were attentive, had time to listen to my questions and were calmly reassuring. My husband and I sneaked back an hour later just to see if she was okay, and we saw her merrily sat outside with a small group of nannies and children, blissfully unaware of us and calmly settled in with her new friends. We were really impressed and relieved and then had a very easy few hours with our minds perfectly settled. We picked up T, who still seemed perfectly at ease and happy in your company, we were really chuffed to see she had such a good afternoon, and I was very impressed and happy with your service. Can't wait to book for next year, and hope to use you again in the future.Thanks again for granting us a peaceful few hours and for taking such good care of T!”

“S really enjoyed being with you all and I felt that you and your staff provided a safe and secure environment for her. I have never left her before at something like the feastival before and would be happy to do it again”

“E had an absolutely fantastic stay with you - I was amazed that she just went trotting in without any concern so you obviously made her feel welcome. To be honest it was amazing for us that you were there so that we were able to enjoy the Feastival for a few hours on our own and see what we wanted to see that would have been boring for E and then we could spend the rest of the time there doing activities with her so thank you so much - I don't think we would change a thing.”

Our Volunteers say...............................................
“I had such an amazing time – I am definitely interested if you do the same next year”

“Thanks so much for inviting us to come along - we had great fun helping out with the kids, the festival was also brilliant!

“We all really enjoyed the work and would love to work for you again at other festivals - keep us updated!”

“Thanks so much for a great weekend at wilderness. It was so much fun and getting to watch bugsy, robin hood and dumbo really just topped it off. Do let us know if you are doing any more festivals as we would be v keen to do it again!”

"I volunteered for Mortimer Nannies at Wilderness festival in summer 2012, and it was a wonderful experience. Tanja had put so much thought into the planning and running of the creche that every child had a great time, with many of them asking their parents if they could come back the next day. There was so much to keep them entertained, and a variety of activities to appeal to them all. The parents were very happy with the service. As a volunteer we were well looked after too, working in shifts and with spare time to enjoy the festival. I hope to have the opportunity to volunteer for Mortimer Nannies again in the future."
