About Us

We are an agency run by 2 nannies with over 20 years' experience between us. Keeping it personal and finding you the right nanny is our ethos. 

Laura and Hannah come from a nanny background and understand how crucial it is to work closely with a family to identify their childcare needs. We have experience of working with numerous families worldwide, including those with newborns, twins, special needs and larger families. We are able to cater for each family's bespoke requirements from ad hoc childcare, full time and live-in nannies as well as overseas placements. 

We are passionate about working with children and have enjoyed building close relationships over the years with a number of families. For us, it is more than just a job! 

Laura is the UK representative and Hannah is based in New Zealand. Having a representative in both continents allows us to work hand in hand. Laura specialises in identifying the clients needs to ensure the correct candidate is placed accordingly. Hannah will be working closely with potential nannies in New Zealand to connect with each individual and talk through possible job options.

Nannies from New Zealand and Australia

At NZ Nannies London we provide you with a shortlist of suitable screened candidates to help you find the right individual for your family.

All of our nannies come with a wealth of hands-on experience.

Our main aim is to ensure that we match you with a capable, professional and friendly nanny who shares your family's values.

The great thing about us is our unique insight; Hannah herself started off in New Zealand, excited about the prospect of nannying in London. She is in the perfect position to help potential nannies with visas, travel and all the little tips.

In today’s world, it’s not easy being a parent - and it’s even harder to find good, reliable and affordable childcare.

Contact us to learn more about our services or schedule a personal meeting.

Live in and Daily Nannies

Both of these roles carry out the same 'nursery duties'. 

Live in nannies generally work an 11-12 hour day, Monday to Friday with 1-2 nights babysitting included. 

Live out nannies, otherwise known as daily nannies, normally work a 10 hour day, Monday to Friday. They will do babysitting if agreed in advance, paid on top of their normal salary.


Permanent and Temporary Nannies

A permanent nanny can either be live in or out. We believe that a permanent position should be for a minimum of 1 year.

A temporary nanny may work for just a few days, either filling in, holiday cover, accompanying families on overseas trips or as an emergency. They can be booked for a few days, weeks or months depending on the family's requirements. 


Mother's Help, After School Nannies and Babysitters

Live in or out, a Mother's Help generally works alongside the mother and/or father, hours to be discussed between the client and nanny. They are not cleaners but they will do 'nursery duties' for the children.

We can provide regular after school nannies and babysitters.

What does your vetting procedure include?

NZ Nannies London carry out enhanced DBS checks as well as personally checking all references. All nannies come with relevant working visas to live and work in the United Kingdom. It is also crucial they have a up to date first aid certificate. This is something we can arrange for our nannies.

What do I have to do when I become an employer?

As the nanny will be employed directly by the family, the family is legally required to register with HMRC as an employer and operate a PAYE scheme on their behalf. There are several companies who offer this service, such as NannyTax.

How long does it take to match a family with a nanny?

Finding the right fit for both nanny and family is something we take pride in so do not like to rush the process. This could take as little as a few days or as long as a month.

What is the going rate for a full time Nanny?

This varies depending on hours, number of children and experience. 

Please contact us for more information.

NZ Nannies London

I found a wonderful Kiwi Nanny through NZ Nannies London for my busy family of 5. Laura and the team carefully listened to our requirements and found great candidates that matched our needs rather than sending out numerous CVs that didn't. This made the whole process less painful than it has been in the past and I highly recommend them to you. If we are looking again I would without hesitation contact NZ Nannies London to assist us in finding the perfect match.
