If the parent dismissed the nanny, then it will be assumed it was short term nanny services and each day rate will be KSHS 1000.

  1. Afternoon,

    Hope this mail finds you well.

    I sent an email through Facebook and I’m not sure you received it.

    I have three children aged 15yrs, 13yrs and 6yrs and I’m expecting a baby in November. I have stayed with my nanny for 13years and she now 62years leaving for retirement.

    I would like someone who can clean the house, clothes , iron and stand in to watch the kids once the day help has left, she should be able to cook all meals with ease and good cooking at that.

    I mature lady 35years and above, who is patient, kind, respectful and organized.

    Let me know of you have anyone who can fit the above description.

    Kind Regards
