We understand the pressure of modern family life and design our services around your routine. We are registered with The Care Inspectorate, Disclosure Scotland and the Protecting Vulnerable Groups Scheme (PVG).

We provide full-time and part-time nannies, on call babysitters, and tutors – most of whom hold university degrees and driving licences.

Childcare Vouchers

The Care Necessities can accept your Childcare Vouchers and we can also register your Nanny so that you can pay them with Childcare Vouchers.


If your child needs additional study support, alongside consistent care services, we can tailor a package so that they don’t struggle. Tutoring for exam preparation is one of our most popular services and we can provide help with all subjects.

Care - Home and Away

We care when you aren’t there, so providing care services at home or away is never a problem.

Whether it’s a hotel babysit, wedding or a spontaneous evening out, our care provision ensures that your children are looked after whenever other commitments arise.

Tax-Free Childcare

For those families that have a nanny; did you know that we can register your nanny for you so that you can pay your nanny through the new HMRC Tax- Free Childcare Scheme. In order for your nanny to have an account and be paid via the scheme they must be registered with an approved regulator of which we are. In addition to this we can also accept payment for our babysitting, nanny and tutoring services through the scheme. For further information of if you have any questions at all then feel free to contact us.
