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!

So why choose Kids Deserve the Best? Perhaps these points may help you decide.

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

  • Nannies offer greater flexibility for working families, especially for those who work longer or unusual hours, or those who may need weekend or overnight over.
  • A Nanny will give your children 1-1 care and interaction in their own familiar home environment, making this care similar to the care they would receive from a parent.
  • Nannies are there to look after all the needs of the children, including their safety and general welfare, making healthy meals, taking to toddler groups and doing school runs, in addition to planning a variety of age appropriate activities for the child or children to ensure they are happy and having FUN, at the same time as encouraging learning and development!
  • The Nanny should also keep the children’s bedrooms and play areas clean and tidy and assist with the 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.

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!
