A personal approach to finding and matching you with your childcare service throughout Yorkshire

My Approach


Families choose to use The Yorkshire Nanny Company for my personal, hands on approach.

I take the time to get to know you and your family in your own home, so I can get a good understanding of what you’re looking for in a childcare professional, making matching your family with the right person seamless.

Childcare Professionals


The first stage of selection is a one to one meeting where I personally interview every individual who wishes to register with the agency. During our meeting, I am looking for a person with:


  • Honesty
  • Nurturing personality
  • Good common sense
  • Ability to use their initiative
  • Good attention to detail
  • Passion and enthusiasm
  • A healthy attitude to outdoor play
  • An understanding of the importance of a good diet

The last few years have taught me that the above qualities make for a well-rounded, suitable candidate who will provide the best possible care for your family.

Being a mother myself, I understand that when you’re not with your children, the person caring for them needs to be “the very next best thing” to you.



The second stage allows me to properly verify the individual sitting in front of me and likewise, their documents. The candidate must reach The Yorkshire Nanny Company standard in order to remain in the registration process. 

Therefore, my checklist consists of:


  1. Face to face interview
  2. DBS check
  3. Paediatric First Aid Certificate
  4. Reference check (at least 3 consistent)
  5. Insurance check
  6. Childcare qualification check (where applicable)
  7. I.D check
  8. Right to Work in the UK check

What families are saying...

 ” Thank you so much for all your help! You found a sitter for us at very short notice and you took care to get the right person for our family considering the age of our kids.

I was nervous about leaving my 11 month baby in the care of someone else but as soon as I met our lovely sitter  I knew she was going to be fine. We felt reassured and both kids loved her. Your service is very personal, reliable and professional.

I will definitely use your agency again and recommend it to friends and family. Can’t thank you enough. “
