Our philosophy for parents is to listen to your childcare needs and find the best Nanny who will be suitable for you and your family. Kids Deserve the Best will assist you throughout the whole process, from your initial inquiry continuing all the way through to after placement support and follow up. Kids Deserve the Best want you to be happy and confident with the choices you make and choose the right person for the right reasons - your children are special and they deserve the BEST, not second or third best!

Our nannies

All potential Nannies have been interviewed in person by Kids Deserve the Best, a full history of skills and experience taken and an idea of their long term plans. References are checked before being considered for any family. The majority of Nannies will have a current DBS Check (previously CRB Check) and most will be signed onto the DBS Update Service which makes a DBS certificate more portable and checkable. Nannies come to us with a variety of skills, training and real life experience - you choose what works best for you. Trust your instincts!

Benefits of having a Nanny

  • They offer greater flexibility for working families, especially for those who work longer or unusual hours.
  • A Nanny will give your children 1-1 care and interaction in their own familiar home environment.
  • Nannies are there to look after all the children's needs, including their safety and general welfare, making healthy meals, taking to toddler groups and doing the school runs, in addition to planning a structured and FUN day for the child or children.
  • The Nanny should also keep the children's bedrooms clean and tidy and assist with children's laundry.
  • Nannies are paid per hour per family, not per child as in other childcare facilities - especially useful for families of more than one child.
  • If you receive childcare vouchers through your employer or the childcare element of tax credits then you may be able to redeem this against the cost of your nanny by using an Ofsted Registered Nanny. Nannies who are currently on the Voluntary Ofsted Register are likely to be working with a family already. Please read our Voluntary Ofsted Registration Guidance for more information.

Association of Nanny Agencies (ANA)

Kids Deserve the Best is proud to be members of The Association of Nanny Agencies (ANA) - being part of ANA means we work to the very highest quality of standards and care for everyone who comes to us for support.
To be a member, agencies are tested by anonymous callers to ensure they do indeed adhere to these standards, only if you pass the test calls can your membership to ANA be confirmed. ANA members have an ongoing support network to help each other, members are kept up to date with any change in legislation, to support one another with any issues.

Kids Deserve the Best is proud to be on the Committee of the Association of Nanny Agencies. From June 2017, three members of the Kids Deserve the Best team are on the ANA committee, helping shape the nanny industry and supporting families, nannies, & other Nanny & childcare agencies. By working together with other complimentary childcare services we have access to a much bigger range of skills and resources which will ultimately help an agency to help their clients and their nannies more efficiently.

Being a Nanny is a great honour for those who choose this as their professional career path, being a Nanny is most definitely not the same as being a babysitter, nor is it the same thing as being an AuPair! Being a Nanny does not mean playing with kids all day - Nannies do almost the same job as a parent would do - attending to all the daily needs of the children, planning the day with age appropriate activities and outings to encourage fun, learning and development, social interaction in addition to being a good role model for the children as they grow through life!

ANA is the Association which support Nanny Agencies. BAPN is the Association which supports Nannies. Therefore the most natural direction is to work together and support each other Association to Association - because we share the same ultimate goal - what is best for our clients and nannies! Without great nannies, a nanny agency cannot help their clients. Kids Deserve the Best is proud to be working in association with ANA and BAPN to help shape the nanny industry in the UK.
