Heavenly is a bespoke Childcare Agency, based in London. We place exceptional Nannies, Au Pairs, Mother’s Helps, Housekeepers, Junior Nannies and Companions to the Elderly with families in households throughout Britain.
We are passionate about our Heavenly Nannies, Au Pairs and Elderly Companions and about making placements which are as successful for our Heavenly Families as they are for our Heavenly Candidates!
How we started
Drawing on our own personal experiences of finding childcare, we sought to establish a high end service which provides our client families not only with an exceptional Candidate; Nanny, Au Pair or other Helper -someone whom we would choose for ourselves, but which also supports the family throughout this exciting process and during the entire placement with a wealth of advice and helpful information. The idea is to conduct each client search and after care as if it were for our own families – ie. how we would expect to be looked after if we were the client.
All of us in the Heavenly Nannies & Au Pairs team has been an Au Pair or Nanny (or both) or has engaged an Au Pair or Nanny. We have many years of experience in making successful placements and benefit from an in-depth understanding of factors which render a placement successful and solutions for any possible issues. There is rarely a problem which we have not yet found out how to deal with!
Each Heavenly Team member is educated to degree level. Together, we have experience in high level international business, recruitment, parenting, nannying, hosting & being Au Pairs, employing nannies and other domestic staff, babysitters, using day nurseries etc. Whilst many of our Nannies are British, most of our Au Pairs, Companions and Housekeepers come from overseas (majority from Europe); for this reason it is a huge advantage that Heavenly Team members all speak several European languages and have all lived abroad at some time.
You have come to the right place to find a nanny!
We created Heavenly Au Pairs & Nannies because we feel that most families, like our own, would benefit from the flexible help and support of a cheerful, capable and reliable person who both genuinely loves children and has plenty of experience caring for them. We discovered that we had the ‘knack’ of engaging the best Nannies and Au Pairs, guiding placements through potential pit-falls and making them a success. We enjoy helping other families find the same high quality childcare as we have – to make their experience truly wonderful – as great as our own. We have since expanded our bespoke service to other domestic staff including experienced heavenly housekeepers and heavenly home help companions for the elderly. We apply our own strict credentials to each applicant search.

She is degree educated (BSc) and previously spent many years working for an international finance business. Gill is on the BAPAA Executive Committee.
Isabel, Senior Placement Consultant
Isabel manages the team. She came to Heavenly years ago armed with a top degree in Psychology (very useful in this business!) and excellent experiences as an Au Pair herself. Isabel is bi-lingual in Spanish and English and as an extremely conscientious person, upholds the highest standards in attention to detail and customer service.
Barbara, Placement Consultant
Barbara is an integral Heavenly team member. Barbara is degree educated and speaks several languages; she has previously worked in several other European countries. She brings a wealth of valuable personal experience to the Heavenly Team, having spent years first as an au pair and then as a Nanny in London. Barbara is particularly appreciated within the Heavenly office for her dry wit and puns!
Aneta, Placement Consultant
We value Aneta’s experience as not only having worked for a successful start-up company where she had responsibility for the running of several operations but Aneta has herself been a very successful au pair in America. She stayed for 2 years and fell in love with the children as much as they fell in love with her. Aneta has a BA degree in pedagogy and social advisory. Her valuable insights and compassion for making suitable matches are some of her greatest assets.
Amelia, Team Support
Amelia was one of our best au pairs before she joined the Heavenly team in the office a few years ago. Amelia came to Europe from New Zealand and was initially engaged as an au pair in Denmark before moving with her then host family to England. Amelia knows just what it takes to be a great au pair and achieve a successful placement. Amelia has a degree in psychology and is also working towards her Masters Degree. She is calm under pressure and has a good sense of humour 😉
Yolanda left her native South Africa after finishing her degree to see a bit more of the world. She is our newest team member but brings with her a wealth of relevant personal experience having herself been an au pair in England and in France before settling down to work as a nanny in London. She enjoys interviewing our new candidates and giving guidance to our clients and candidates over the phone or email. Yolanda is always cheerful, enthusiastic and dedicated to doing her best for our clients and candidates alike! Photo to follow soon..
