THE TEAM

We pride ourselves on our staff and will ensure you are matched with the most suitable nanny for the job.  Our recruitment process ensures all new nannies are met by Harriet personally and will always work alongside her until they are fully settled.  All team members hold current enhanced police checks (DBS) as well as relevant qualifications and first aid certificates.  Our staff wear a smart uniform to enable them to blend into any event but their name badges will make sure they are easily identifiable to the children and parents.
