Heavenly is a leading Childcare Agency, based in London. Members of ANA, BAPAA and IAPA, we place exceptional Nannies, Au Pairs, Mother’s Helps, Housekeepers, Junior Nannies and Companions to the Elderly in London and throughout Britain.
We are passionate about our Heavenly candidates and about making placements which are as successful for our Heavenly Families as they are for our Nannies, Au Pairs etc!
How we started; our 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; 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.
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 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!).
All of us in the Heavenly Nannies & 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 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!
