Here at the Nanny Connection we only ever recruit Nannies who have our traditional values. We look for a true passion, respect and love when caring for children as well as adequate knowledge and training. Most of our Nannies will have a minimum qualification as detailed below. We offer full time nannies, part time nannies, rota nannies and temporary nannies.

Helping You Discover the Role of a Nanny

The role of the Nanny is to become their caregiver and connect with their charges in the children’s own home. This could be as a sole charge nanny or a shared care nanny. They can work as a daily nanny, or a live in nanny.

Their duties include:

  • Feeding
  • Bathing
  • Children’s laundry and care of their clothes
  • Keeping their bedrooms, playrooms and nurseries clean and tidy
  • Responsible for creating enriching and developmental appropriate activities to encourage milestones and nurturing interests.

The benefits of choosing a Nanny as your chosen childcare is:

  • One to one care
  • A relaxed and familiar environment for the child
  • Tailored working hours to align with parents employment so there is a less need to rush back

Nannies can work part time (under 30 hours per week) or full time (up to around 60 hours per week).

Nannies can work on a permanent or temporary basis. Please note we only recruit for positions of a minimum of 30 hours per week.

Sometimes other roles can be incorporated into a nanny’s role if the child’s age allows or there is additional help. For example if the child attends nursery or school, this could create time for a Nanny to be able to do other duties around the house, perhaps cook family meals (Nanny/Chef), attend to horse duties (Nanny/Groom), PA duties (Nanny/PA), or develop educational activities if tutoring or working as a governess (Nanny/Governess or Nanny/Tutor).

A permanent Nanny will be employed, with a working contract with fixed hours, tax, national insurance and pension contributions paid by the family. They are not normally self employed, unless they work for more than two families.

Here Are Some of the Qualifications That Our Nannies Will Have Studied:
  • NVQ Level 3 qualification in Childcare and Education
  • BTEC L3 in Children’s Play, Learning and Development
  • NNEB (Nursery Nurse Examining Board)
  • BA (Honours) Early Childhood, or Early Childhood and Youth Studies
  • Trained by Norland College and awarded the Norland Diploma and degree
  • Trained by Chiltern Training and awarded NVQ L3
  • Trained at Princess Christian College and awarded NNEB.

I have registered with The Nanny connection last year as a nanny and since then I follow Allie on social media and recently at a nanny conference. Allie is very friendly and helpful. She created my portfolio as I asked her to make it and it came to me as I imagined it! At the conference, she run a workshop about the perfect nanny job. All the information were to the point and she even gave us a booklet with possible questions or a nanny's questions, how to be prepared for the interview etc. I used the ideas of the booklet recently to an interview and it went pretty amazing! Also, I bought a bunch of online courses which are so useful in a very reasonable price. I highly recommend The Nanny connection and their services. Allie is fantastic!

Allie’s agency is the only agency I will ever use. Unlike other agents, she genuinely spends a lot of time understanding your brief and finding the right person who suits you. And unlike most agents, she doesn’t push or pressure you into a candidate who doesn’t match your family. I have been using Allie for years and she is truly warm, caring, and helpful beyond measure. She even gave me helpful tips when I was a new mum. Just an all round lovely person and I recommend her to everyone I know! I promise you that you won’t find anyone better or who will be in your corner more!!

Allie spent a lot of time understanding the brief, and what exactly we were looking for in a nanny. To that end, every candidate she put forward was compelling, unlike other agencies where they send you whoever they have on their books. It was clear that she had spent time and effort ensuring we were looking at credible options. She was also incredibly responsive, professional and patient through out. Thank you Allie!

A huge thank you to Allie for kindly going over my CV for me & completely jazzing it up! A simple layout change has made a huge difference ☺️

Allie was great at taking the time to understand exactly what we wanted and needed in a nanny and also showed us how to identify those qualities in the candidates during the interview process. We were not inundated by potential candidates who almost met our criteria as Allie ensures that the cvs we received where relevant to our requirements, which meant we didn’t have any wasted interviews. Great for anyone who is time poor but has exacting standards! Would definitely use Allie again!
