What We Do

Chickadee Childcare is an introduction agency. The Agency acts to introduce Families (Clients) and Nannies. Clients and Nannies are responsible for dealing with employment and contractual matters between themselves. The Agency do not directly or indirectly employ the Nannies, we are an introduction agency who will refer Nannies to potential employers. We are not responsible for the payment of introduced Nannies.

With over 15 years experience in childcare and Nannying we pride ourselves in having the knowledge, understanding and resources so that we can assist both Nannies and Clients alike. Chickadee Childcare does all the hard work for you and is here to help and assist you along the way to employing your perfect Nanny.

We meet and interview all our nannies after they have completed a lengthy registration form. This enables us to then select nannies from our database which best fit your requirements. This makes the process much less time consuming for you.

When interviewing Nannies we ask for them to bring;

  • Curriculum Vitae (CV)
  • Details of contactable referees
  • Two short testimonials (300 word)
  • Current photo identification
  • Proof of address
  • Driving licence if held
  • Most recent CRB or DSB certificate, first aid certificate
  • Proof of right to work in the UK i.e. British/European Economic area passport/birth certificate

One less thing for you to worry about, however, we do recommend that a new Disclosure and Barring Service check is done when you employ your nanny. We can assist you with this using our umbrella company for a cost of £60 which can be paid either by Client or Nanny by mutual agreement.
