Nanny Services

We are a London-based nanny agency and one of the leading providers of private childcare in the UK and overseas. For over 15 years we have handpicked the best childcare staff on behalf of the families we work for.

The nannies and maternity nurses we choose to represent us are professional, experienced, committed and career minded. Candidates are proud of their solid work record and excellent references and must possess an up-to-date police check (DBS) and first aid qualifications. Please be aware these verification documents will always remain the property of the candidate.

We provide a first class service when it comes to providing nannies in London and nationwide while still caring for your child. With a large database of UK and London nannies, maternity nurses and maternity nannies to give you help and support, we are confident that we will find the best candidate for you.

Our Consultants

Our Consultants are professional and focused on finding the best candidate for the role. This means firstly, that we invest our time and energy in finding the right Consultants to look after our clients and secondly, the Consultants take time to understand both client and candidate in order to make the best matches. It also means that our Consultants will only send the client a very small number of candidates who they believe are the absolute best candidates for the role.

Our team structure additionally allows for a seamless service whereby clients can reach a Consultant and/or the Consultant Supporter with ease.

Our specialist childcare teams work on the following roles for clients based in the UK and abroad:

  • Full time Live-in and Daily Nannies
  • Maternity Nurses
  • Maternity Nannies
  • Night Nannies
  • Nanny/Housekeepers
  • Part-time and Shared Nannies
  • Temporary Nannies
  • Seasonal and Temporary Nannies/Proxy Parenting
  • Junior Nannies (please click here for more details)

Whether you require a daily nanny or a live-in maternity nurse, we can help source the right candidate for you.

If you are looking for a nanny or maternity nurse role, we will place you with the right family.

We don’t simply pay lip service to the idea of conducting business in a positive, conscientious and professional manner – these are the values by which we work on a daily basis.

Live-in Nannies

A Live-in Nanny lives with the family in their home and the family provides the nanny with their own bedroom and sometimes their own bathroom (although often they may share with the children). Sometimes the nanny will be given separate accommodation such as a studio, flat or cottage which they may share with other household staff.

A Live-in nanny in London normally works for 11 to 12 hours a day, five or six days a week and is often expected to offer an additional two or three evenings each week babysitting (exact working hours will depend on the family). Some positions expect the nanny to provide 24-hour cover, five or six days a week. These positions are usually abroad and the salaries will be slightly higher. Please visit the live in nanny page for more details

Live-Out or Daily Nannies

A Live-out or Daily nanny in London travels to the family’s house each day. Live-out nannies generally work for up to 12 hours a day, five days a week and may be required to do evening babysitting as well. This may be included in the salary or paid as extra. Live-out nannies may work either 5 days a week or part-time 1, 2, 3 or 4 day a week.

Nanny Share

Live-out nannies sometimes work in nanny share arrangements where two or more families employ the same nanny to either care for all children at the same time or to work part-time in each home. They could for example work three days with one family followed by two days with another. 

Overseas Nannies

We are also experienced in helping families based overseas source childcare from the United Kingdom. If you are a parent based outside the United Kingdom or a Nanny seeking an international role, please visit our international section or speak to  any of our Nanny/Childcare consultants  on 020 7471 6000 or click here to register as a client

Nannies based in the Country

A Nanny based in the country can normally expect to be very much part of the family, so will need to be a good team player with a flexible outlook. Quite often the care of children is shared, as many parents work/run businesses from home, therefore the duties will perhaps be more varied. Duties will of course be agreed from the outset, however it would not be unusual to have included dog walking, chicken feeding or other outside activities. It goes without saying that the nanny should enjoy a country lifestyle and all it brings.

We look after increasing numbers of families and households outside London and support the growing numbers of child carers seeking positions in provincial towns and rural areas. Many families take the decision to move away from London, but still require the support of a professional or experienced full-time child carer and an agency who will maintain the high standards expected in sourcing childcare.

The ‘Country Desk’ applies the same quality approach that our reputation is already built on, with regards to interviewing, sourcing and referencing of candidates. All potential candidates are personally interviewed, have a work history that we can fully explore and will have a full DBS (police) check and an up to date First Aid Certificate. In addition, only those candidates with at least 3 years full time relevant work experience or 2 years experience with a recognised childcare qualification will be registered.

One of the great advantages of employing a ‘country’ nanny is the candidates’ understanding that flexibility and a ‘muck in’ attitude is important. This may include such tasks as walking the dog(s!), feeding the chickens, sheep, horses or taking the children for a good long walk!
