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 Preventing 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.

Other Services

The Care Necessities can also help with household tasks and childcare errands to give you back some time from your schedule and to ensure that your child enjoys the care experience.
