Kids Deserve the Best began in December 2008, being run by Sarah Parkin in Newcastle upon Tyne. The agency grew and built up a good reputation for providing an excellent quality of service, support throughout the nanny recruitment process, and our clients really liked the after care advice & support provided. As no two families are the same the support has always been tailor made to match each individual family circumstance to ensure the best person is found to suit each families needs.

Sarah is a mum of two children herself and has a caring approach and understanding of childcare aspects from a parent's point of view in addition to a good understanding of things from an employees view point too. Having previously worked in a Nanny Agency, Sarah wanted to provide continuity of support for families and Nannies to ensure they had the best support available to them – nothing is ever too much trouble and always willing to help!

In 2014 Sarah became involved in the committee of The Association of Nanny Agencies (ANA) as a volunteer, and in 2017 was elected as Chairperson of the association, with her colleague Ray Burke standing as Vice Chairperson. It was at the same time that Kids Deseve the Best branched out and opened new offices in south London, providing services in Dulwich, Balham, Clapham, Brixton, & surrounding areas.

Our team of four recruitment consultants provide a caring and personalised service to families in the UK. Louise, Joanne, Ray & Sarah would love to help you and help solve your childcare requirements! Call us today on 0191 250 7025 for all North East England enquiries and 0203 1500 225 for our London office.

"I was novice to any kind of organised child care, always having had the benefit of my Mother to help look after my daughter, but when she was no longer able to do this, I called Sarah ( after a recommendation ) in desperation and I must admit I was a little hesitant to know what to expect or what could be done. She was absolutely fantastic, put my mind at rest immediately, professional, patient, totally understanding and could not have been more responsive and helpful to try and fit whatever care she provided around my daughter and very specific needs as a single parent. I can't recommend the agency highly enough. I don't usually write reviews but the service was, and still is, exceptional. Thank you Sarah for your support and patience to find someone perfect for our circumstances."

It's been a pleasure to help you, please remember we are here if you need us! Sarah.


"I got in touch with Sarah with a multitude of questions regarding hiring a nanny and she took the time to explain things to me over the phone and to send all the information I needed via email...and I wasn't even working with her at the time!!! I can only imagine how well she looks after the people who work with or for her. Thanks again for everything!!!"

Kids Deserve The Best says: Thank you Samira, there is nothing more important than finding the right person to look after your children and making sure you set the right foundations of the arrangement between nanny and family in the beginning. Remember good communication between you all is essential to make this a success. Hope things work out well and we are here if you need anything.


"We relocated North East from London and were desperately looking for a nanny to replace ours who wanted to stay. Lots of change - wrong nanny, new job, new environment. We had a very bad experience with a nanny agency in London who were more money orientated than caring about finding the right nanny for us. Sarah at KDTB is totally the opposite she is so caring, a fabulous listener, carefully analysing our needs and ensuring we were making the right choice. Sarah was also kind enough to check on how we were coping with our new life. Whenever I needed to ask a question she was there taking her time to explain everything. We did find a nanny for our 2 little boys and Sarah helped us with all the administration. Sarah is dedicated to her job, her passion is something that you rarely see. She runs her business with her heart. You can't be disappointed with the support. We very rarely write reviews but Sarah we will never thank you enough for your patience and time helping us."

Kids Deserve The Best says: It was absolutely my pleasure, lovely to meet you and your husband. Getting the right childcare solution for every family is so important. A good agency should always listen, understand and be there for ongoing support, not just for the family, but for the nanny too!


"I came to Sarah in April 2015 after completing a childcare degree and I wanted to seek my first working role as a nanny. Sarah was very helpful, informative in regards to the job role and what it involves. During my time nannying I was able to contact her with any questions or queries and she was always available for both myself and the family which showed her professionalism and approach to her job is excellent. I would highly recommended her to both nannies and families!"

"As I had not used childcare facilities before I was very apprehensive. Spending a lot of time communicating with childcare professionals, Sarah stood out from the start. Reliable, accommodating and helpful are just a few words I would use to describe Sarah. The service and childminding have been second to none. I have been able to relax at college as a result knowing my children were in excellent hands. Sarah is the reason I continue with my college studies. My children do have the best care. The agency does live up to its name."

"As two families in the local area for a wedding we were fortunate enough to be recommended KDTB for arranging babysitting services for the evenings. Sarah was very helpful in arranging this for us and they were even able to accommodate a third family at very short notice. Would use again if in the area or would be happy to recommend."

"We used Sarah's services for our wedding in December 2014 and hired two nannies for five kids aged from 1 to 8. We came to Sarah after another well known Nanny Service had let us down. We made sure that all insurances and accreditations were in place by visiting Sarah at there office in Felling Gateshead. On the day the two nannies turned up on time with a load of toys and just took all of the stress away, so much so that the kids genuinely did not want to leave the playroom at the end of the day. The Nannies wer fantastic, the kids loved them, the price was very reasonable, I could not reccomend Kids Deserve The Best more highly. My wife and I were very pleased with the Service. Corrin"

"I've asked for Sarah's help on 2 occasions now and whilst I didn't go ahead with the nannies put forward as I found what I needed through my own contacts, Sarah's help and guidance was invaluable and she ensured she only put forward candidates she was confident fit the role requirements or she told me where she thought they might not 100% fit, but why she thought they were still worth considering. There is no pressure "sale", Sarah emphatically wants you to get the right person for your family and the right family for the nanny. Her skills mean she is very busy but she doesn't forget you."

Sarah was excellent help and was always there to help. She set me up to meet with a fantastic family and instantly bonded with them. I have started working for this particular family and finally feel happy within a job role once again.

"From the minute Sarah answered the phone in her friendly, calm, cheerful way – I felt like I was in safe hands. Trusting your little one to someone for the first time is incredibly hard, and Sarah listened patiently while I sobbed down the phone and did her level best to not only understand my practical and logistical needs, but also to reassure me that I wasn’t completely mad! It was like a cuddle from your mum when you need it most! She immediately puts you at ease and you can just tell she genuinely loves her job and helping people. She works above and way beyond the call of duty, and has helped me twice at very short notice and came up trumps both times regarding very complicated contracts where I've relocated from London to Newcastle for short periods. I hand on heart cannot recommend her enough and wish her every continued success in the business she was clearly born to do!"

"I have previously worked as a Childminder and in 2008 chose to transfer my Ofsted Registration to Home Carer 'Nanny'. I contacted Sarah and following thorough reference, work history and Crb checks, Sarah helped place me with my first family within weeks. I stayed with the family long term until the children started school. Sarah then helped me find a new long term position within weeks of leaving. Sarah has supported me over the years and has always been a great help. I can not recommend Sarah highly enough, she is ever the professional and always available at the end of the telephone. I would have no hesitation recommending KDTB to any family wishing to employ a Nanny and to any Nanny looking for a new family. Thank you."

"Sarah and KDTB have been extremely helpful to us over the last few months - arranging emergency nanny cover when the children have been too unwell to get to nursery and we haven't been able to take time off work, often with less than 24 hours' notice. More recently we decided to employ a nanny permanently and Sarah has been amazing through every step of the process. She came to meet us in our house to discuss it and then provided us with about 9 CVs from excellent nannies to be considered. She arranged all the interviews and follow-up interviews, advised us on interview questions and let them all know afterwards (we were worried about having to do this!) and is now guiding us and our new nanny (with whom we are very pleased) through the Ofsted/tax/insurance paperwork with ease. Would have no hesitation in recommending KDTB to anyone considering employing a nanny. Thank you!"

She lead us through the process with minimum stress and maximum efficiency. Within a week we had already received some CV's and felt KDTB took great care to establish both our needs and the nannies requirements and match us up beautifully.

"I was lucky to find Sarah at KDTB when I was looking for nanny work. Within a week or so I had a fantastic job! I couldn't have asked to deal with a nicer person, Sarah was very helpful and explained everything very clearly and did her job extremely well and professionally. This was 1½ years ago and I have kept in touch with Sarah for various things since. However the latest thing I contacted Sarah about was a shocking story about one of my friends (a Spanish Au Pair) who had come across to work for a family, who shockingly did not turn up to meet her and made no contact (and still have not made contact) with her!! Therefore I knew straight away I needed Sarah's help to find a suitable family for my friend. From the word go Sarah was very helpful and reacted immediately to our need. I just want to say a huge thank you for all of your hard work and I am so pleased and really appreciate your help. You are amazing at your job and so nice and easy to deal with! Thank you again!"

"I was in the unfortunate position that I had to sack a Nanny. I had employed her through word of mouth and she turned out to be lazy, unhelpful and my children took a huge step back developmentally. I emailed Sarah and she phoned me back after the weekend. She immediately put me at ease. She knew a very good Nanny who lived only 4 minutes away. I was over the moon. She got in contact with my Nanny that minute and arranged a time we could meet that day. There was no pressure to accept, just reassurances to make sure she was right for me and my family. I cannot thank Sarah enough, my Nanny is amazing and my uphill struggle has levelled off at least for the moment, but whatever the terrain Sarah has vowed to stay in touch and assist in any ways she can.

"Sarah at Kids Deserve The Best has introduced us to excellent candidates for child caring and full time nanny roles over the past 3-4 years. Her evaluation is always honest and balanced. Her responsiveness is excellent. Sarah only sends cv’s that she thinks are strong, appropriate and always personally pre selects and verifies professional detail herself in person with the candidate. She provides commentary on what she likes about a prospective candidate but importantly for us, is always open about potential reservations she might have about their suitability for our particular needs and expectations. This is good for the candidate and for us. She has taken time to get to know us as individuals and as a family, so has a good sense of what will work for us and what won’t. I’d recommend KDTB to anyone seeking child care, regardless of the kind of support they need. Sarah will listen, understand and respond as best she can, within a very reasonable time frame."

She cares about both the big issues and the details, and really works hard to give you the best possible choice."

"Sarah Parkin has been amazing the whole time i have known her. When i rang her and decided to become a nanny she could not have been more helpful, informative and caring. She ensured that both the family and the nanny were totally at ease throughout the whole process and long after. I could not have asked for a better service from her. Thank you so much Sarah x"

"I got in touch with Sarah at Kids deserve the best a year ago after i finished my degree. I really wanted to become a nanny and improve my childcare experience. Sarah was FANTASTIC, really helpful, well informed and honest. she got me several nannying jobs at weddings all around Newcastle and a few interviews to become a full time nanny. At the start of this year I got a job working as a nanny for a wonderful family looking after their gorgeous little girl and i can honestly say it is the best job i have ever had :) I am now excited to say i am moving to America to work as an Au Pair for another brilliant family who have 2 boys. If it wasn't for Sarah's advise, support, encouragement, honesty and trust i wouldn't be taking this step forward in childcare and starting the next chapter of my life. Thank you!! XxxxxxX"

"Kids Deserve the Best have been amazing to me, I worked with animals for a long time and always wanted to work with children, Sarah helped me massively and really showed me which routes to go down. Without Kids Deserve the Best I wouldn't be looking for child care jobs now and looking forward to 100% enjoying my work. Thank you Sarah xxx"

"We were absolutely delighted with the excellent service we received from Sarah. She managed to find us the perfect nanny for our two boys and has guided us through the process with helpful advice all the way through. We had originally intended to use a child minder which was very expensive and impractical. Thanks to Sarah I can now concentrate on looking forward to my new job with my worries about child care completely put to rest. My top tips: No matter if you think the agency can help or not it is worth speaking to Sarah as she will go an extra ten miles to help families struggling with child care."

"I was having some issues with my childminder and finding it very difficult to move my two boys (both at first school) to a different childminder as it was part way through the school year. I found KDTB in a web search and was very hesitant to make contact, as I had never previously considered a nanny. On first contact Sarah really put my mind at ease (I wish I had contacted her earlier!), becasue the boys are at school I wasn't sure she would be able to find a nanny to work the 'odd' hours we needed. Sarah worked really hard to find someone to fit our requirements and we now have a great nanny whom my boys think is fantastic, and from my side really takes the stress out of juggling childcare and work. I can't recommend Sarah at KDTB highly enough! Great service, very friendly and approachable - much more down to earth than my pre-conceived ideas of what a nanny agency would be!"

"I was rather reluctant to get a nanny but Sarah put all me completely at ease. She was marvellous, super efficient and delightful at helping me through the process - which was completely painless. I cannot recommend her highly enough. If you're struggling over whether to get a nanny or not then don't! It's the best thing we ever did. Don't know how we managed before My top tips: Kids deserve the best provide a marvellous comprehensive service and are great to deal with. Perfect"

"I found Sarah's agency in the yellow pages. I did not expect her to be able to help because I was looking for childcare for only a few hours at a difficult time of day. Sarah was very professional, friendly and helpful and obviously understood the difficulties families face trying to sort out childcare. Within 24 hours she provided me someone who could help and this new nanny started a few weeks ago. This lady has been great. She is friendly, reliable and the kids like her very much. I would definately recommend Kids Deserve The Best! My top tips: I would recommend Kids Deserve The Best for any childcare needs. Sarah was great."

"I've known Sarah for several years now. I have never before worked with someone who actually cares about their job and no job is too small for her, Sarah dedicates her time to really go the extra mile. When I first met Sarah I was an inexperienced nanny, through her help and support I am now going through the OFSTED process and have gained invaluable experience from her. Anyone whether they be a family or a nanny are all treat in the same professional manner. A fantastic agency all round! Sarah is genuine, patient and extremely helpful. Such a caring and wonderful person, I will continue to work with her in the future for a very long time to come!"

"Fantastic, immediate, friendly and helpful advise about how to go about finding and employing a nanny. What was even more fantastic was that I had already found a nanny and needed help from there, so Sarah wasn't going to profit in any way from the time she took to talk to me and the information she sent. I would look forward to contacting her again, and would be hugely reassured that any help she gave me would be first class. My top tips: Rest much easier knowing people like Sarah are out there to help with childcare"
