Finding and Hiring the Perfect Nanny

Our job is to make the process of finding and hiring the perfect nanny as quick, easy and stress-free as possible. But first, there are a few things you need to do:

1. Know what you want.  Do you want your nanny to be full time, part time, to live in or live out? Do you want someone to help you around the house too, occasionally stay overnight or come on holiday? When do you need them to start? Think about your lifestyle, your budget, your work and your day-to-day routines and how best a nanny could fit in with your needs.

2. Know your family.  What is important to you and your children? Do you have particular values, beliefs, routines or ways of doing things that you want to be respected and reinforced by your nanny? Do your children have special medical or dietary needs that need to be taken into account? Think about what a nanny needs to know in order to care for your children as well as you do yourself

3. Anticipate hiccups.  If you’ve had nannies before and encountered problems, what were they and how can they be avoided in future? If you have never had a nanny before, what do you need to know or do to help things go smoothly?

With this information we can quickly get moving and find you the perfect nanny. Rest assured that we can tell you everything you need to know about hiring a nanny and even help you with the technical side of things like payroll and national insurance.
