Rent-A-Mum, GPO Box 7301, General Post Office, 2 Connaught Place, Hong Kong
Rent-A-Mum has a long history in HK and today is owned and operated by Shirley Robinson, a qualified nurse and English teacher, who bought the company back in the ’80s. They offer a comprehensive range of services ranging from full-time nannies to maternity nurses, to ad hoc daytime childcare and babysitting. They also offer temporary live-ins (ideal for parents who wish to go overseas without the bambinos) and “mother’s helpers” (perfect for those who have just arrived in HK and need an extra hand until a helper can be processed). From experience, Georgia Greenwood is a perfect part-time ‘Mum’.
