Years of Experience

The Nanny Company was started by me, Susie Barratt, in 2004 after 15 years working in the childcare industry when I saw a real gap in the market for an agency that gave a truly personal service. Who were always available to call for advice and support and who would take the time to get to know each Family and Nanny individually. We have gone on to become Northamptonshires longest established Nanny agency and have since gone on to open branches in both Hertfordshire and Essex. These branches are managed by Rebecca Smith, someone I've known and trusted as a fellow Childcare professional since working together in a Nursery many years ago.

I am incredibly proud of the reputation we have built as a trusted, reliable, friendly and extremely professional agency. We are committed to providing you with a truly bespoke service, whether you're a Family or Nanny, believing every situation is unique and has individual requirements. Therefore, whilst we can provide you with (or a job as) a live in or live out Nanny, a Mothers Help, Babysitter, Emergency Cover or Event Childcare we also know that sometimes what you need is not quite that straightforward. But we do know we can help, and we genuinely care about ensuring we only make truly successful placements.

I hope you find our website information but if you'd rather chat to us in person, or exchange a few emails then please feel free to get in touch.

We’ve Got You Covered



If you are a parent you can be assured that…

  • We can provide you with first class nannies, mother’s helps, babysitters, emergency cover staff and event / wedding child carers.

  • We are committed to providing a level of service second to none, both during the recruitment process and whilst you employ your child carer. We will get to know you and your family as individuals and listen to your specific needs.

  • All of our nannies undergo a strict recruitment process. All candidates are thoroughly interviewed, something many agencies don’t do, reference and ID checked and will have a DBS on the update service. Unsuitable candidates are not registered.

  • We can advise you through the process every step of the way, as parents and childcare professionals ourselves we understand your concerns.



If you are a nanny we will…

  • Work together with you to find your new perfect position.

  • Never put pressure on you to take a position that you do not feel is 100% right for you.

  • Be honest with you, we will never advertise jobs that we don’t have, will never put you forward for jobs you are not sure about and will give you honest feedback every step of the way.

  • Understand how you are feeling - having worked as a nanny, in nurseries and the agency over the past 20 years there is not much I have not seen! We can advise you on all aspects of the nanny process from preparing for interview, Ofsted registration, understanding what an employer expects and much much more.
