For parents, the right choice of childcarer is one of the most critical decisions you will make whilst your children are young. The person you entrust to look after them will be supporting your children at key formative stages of their lives.

Taking into account the everyday dynamics of the work/life balance faced by most parents, a flexible and varied range of childcare options is an essential requirement - the most appropriate childcarers vary according to a range of factors.

These can include:  the ages of the children; whether the role involves sole or shared care; full or part time requirements; and of course an affordable budget.

We can help you make these choices by outlining the realistic options open to you and giving you the benefit of our advice - based on our experience with the many parents for whom we have made successful placements.

"Returning to a demanding full time job, I needed to employ the right nanny to look after my children. County Nannies listened to my needs, identified my priorities and provided a sample of suitable candidates. During the whole process the staff were professional and responsive. The nanny provided by County Nannies met all my requirements and became a valued member of the family over the next two years. I had no hesitation in returning to County Nannies for a replacement when our needs required a different level of childcare." - Amy Bushell, Canterbury
