About us

Heavenly Au Pairs & Gap Years, London

london-au-pairs-agencyHeavenly is the leading au pair agency,we are based in London. Members of ANA, BAPAA & IAPA, we place exceptional  Au Pairs, Mother’s helps, Housekeepers, Nannies and Junior Nannies and Elderly Care Companions in London and throughout Britain. 

We also offer fabulous placements abroad, world-wide, through our Outbound Au Pairs and other overseas Gap Year programmes.

Our Story and Company Ethos

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 -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.

Our ethos is to conduct each client search and placement care as if it were for ourselves – We treat You how WE would expect to be treated if we were the client. That is the best way, we believe, to ensure we are offering the very best service to everyone.

We value our loyal clients… and they value us.

Our business has grown each year. Our clients come back to us time and time again and they recommend us to their friends who also become our long-standing clients. This evidence, along with receiving regular positive feedback from our families, indicates that we are doing the right thing and that our clients appreciate our efforts and our striving to provide the best possible service and best possible candidates. Still, we do not like to be complacent and we take all feedback on board and will always look to where any improvements may be made and welcome all feedback, good or bad (yes really!).

Personal experience, professionalism and attention to detail makes our agency stand out

All of us in the Heavenly Au Pairs teams has been an Au Pair or Nanny (or both) or has engaged an Au Pair or Nanny. We have many years of experience in recruitment 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 considerable experience in recruitment, parenting, nannying, hosting/ being au pairs, employing nannies, housekeepers, 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 Team members all speak several European languages and understand different cultures – having all lived abroad at some time. You have come to the right place to find a nanny!

Meet some of the Team! We are proud to be Heavenly!

Dorota, Placement Consultant

Dorota is the newest member of the team, but comes to us with a wealth of experience in childcare. The latter helps significantly when making accurate judgements on a candidate’s suitability for different roles.

Dorota enjoys interviewing our new candidates and giving guidance to our clients and candidates over the phone or email. Dorota is cheerful, hard-working and quick at her work. We enjoy her down to earth attitude and composure as well as her sense of humour!
