About Select Nannies

Angela Spencer founded Select Nannies in 2000. We have since gained a solid reputation for providing reliable childcare services across Surrey, Berkshire, Hampshire and South London. We aim to keep our clients happy, that’s why the majority of our business comes from client recommendations.

Angela, who comes from a corporate background, worked as a nanny for 7 years. She is also a mother of two and hired nannies for her own children in the past, giving her the perfect experience of being both the employee and the employer. Keeping every family’s unique childcare needs in mind, we ensure that we find the most suitable nanny for you.

Having run a successful nanny agency for over 20 years Angela decided to set up another business called Select House Sitters for when my clients decide to be away https://www.select-housesitters.co.uk/

All about Ofsted and its requirements

Ofsted (the Office for Standards in Education) is responsible for the registration and inspection of schools and childcare providers. They make sure children and young people are cared for, in a safe and secure environment and that a high standard of care and education is provided.

Ofsted Requirements
Nannies wishing to register with the Voluntary Ofsted Childcare Register (vOCR) will need to meet certain criteria.
They must:

  • Be able to show that they have had appropriate training or experience covering the common core skills in childcare
  • Be able to show that they are suitable to work with children.
  • Have public liability insurance
  • Have a valid paediatric first-aid certificate
  • Have an enhanced DBS check; this will be done as part of the registration process unless your previous one was done through Ofsted

To register, apply online at www.ofsted.gov.uk or by calling 0300 123 1231 for an application form. Registration costs £105 per year, which includes the cost of an enhanced DBS check and is valid for 12 months.

She was a perfect fit for our role

I worked with Angela from Select Nannies to find an after school nanny for my son. It was my first time hiring a nanny and they guided me through the whole process from start to finish. Angela clearly does a very thorough job vetting candidates – we only met one nanny and she was a perfect fit for our role. I highly recommend Select Nannies for a professional and personal service.

Natasha

Angela I can not thank you enough. You really know how to place a nanny with a family. I highly recommend Select nannies 🙂 they are efficient and professional and friendly joining a new agency I had a significant amount of anxiety but I was straight away put at ease by Angela. The fact that she had also worked as a nanny showed to me her understanding the highs and lows of not finding the right family.

Rachel Liane Mckittrick

I want to thank Angela for all her help and especially for her kindness, patience and personal touch. I would not hesitate to recommend Select Nannies to any nannies looking for work or parents searching for a nanny. Thanks to Angela, I found the most amazing job.

Angela was a pleasure to deal with

We approached Select Nannies for a temporary nanny position and from the very beginning Angela was a pleasure to deal with. She was very knowledgeable, helpful and practical. I really felt that she cared and was available whenever I needed to contact her.

Emma Barrowman

We worked with Angela on finding our first ever nanny, which means we had an unlimited amount of questions and concerns. The whole process took us over 8 months and throughout it all, Angela was incredibly knowledgeable, exceedingly helpful, and extremely patient. She was understanding of all of our difficult requirements and supportive of all of our uneasiness. We could not recommend Angela and her company more and honestly believe that she would be a huge benefit to any family looking for a nanny or any other sort of childcare!!

We highly recommend Select Nannies! Angela helped us quickly find someone when our childcare needs changed unexpectedly, and we’ve also used her to find our current permanent nanny, who is a treasure. Angela took the time to get to know us and really understand our needs, and she matched us with fantastic candidates. She also provided much needed on-going support, helping us with paperwork, set up and more. I recommend Angela and Select Nannies to all of my friends in the area with childcare needs.

Emma Barrowman

Angela is consultative and tenacious in her approach and was very proactive in my search for nanny. `she was in contact with me daily and gave me honest feedback so I could gauge what the perception of the role and myself was to these candidates, very useful when other agents filter the feedback leaving the hiring parent in the dark. I would certainly recommend her very highly and use her services again.

Angela at Select Nannies was incredibly professional and made our nanny search easy. She knows the nanny market in Surrey inside / out and sent through a select number of candidates who she knew well, making the process very efficient for us. In addition, she really took the time to give us advice on interviewing, common practices and how to select a nanny right for our family. She was always available to speak and very responsive. The service is very personalised and friendly. We highly recommend Angela and Select Nannies!
