Parent Partners

The ultimate mix of flexibility, reliability and care, with an added sprinkle of entertainment and educational magic!

Nannies like no others, our Parent Partners remove the stress and headache of rigid childcare solutions, tailoring their expertise to give your child the imaginative, creative and educational care you’ve been looking for, in a way that fits around your commitments. Perfect for families with busy jobs, those with frequent travel obligations, or families with multiple children that require an expert juggler.
Each Parent Partner is chosen for their special sparkle. As unique as your family, they will work with you to create a childcare solution that provides both practical and reassuring support to you and your family while inspiring and engaging your children.

Offering all the benefits of a traditional nanny, but with none of the paperwork, employment or administrative duties this normally comes with. Our service is completely reliable and simple to integrate in your life.

With our comprehensive training under their belt, our Parent Partners come to your house armed with tons of fun and creative activities that will not only entertain your little ones but support them academically by following the Early Years Framework…not that they’ll realise it, they’ll have been having so much fun. We keep tweens and teens entertained and educated too, with exciting day trips out, playdates with friends and thinking of fun ways to help them with their homework.

Completely flexible, we work with you to create a schedule that meets your needs. No more racing to multiple drop offs, no more worrying about that last-minute meeting. We’ll care for your kids with all the love and attention of a Nana, but with all the credentials and benefits of a nanny.
