Welcome to the Bespoke Childcare Agency for matching childcare professionals with discerning families.

We are the leading international agency for placing childcare professionals with successful, international families who demand the best. We understand your need for discreet, hard working, caring and safe childcare, and go to great lengths to meet it. We select all our governesses and nannies with infinite attention to detail. Then we check them thoroughly, to ensure they are well qualified, experienced, reliable and respectful.


Governesses and Nannies


Our governess training seminars are run by Amanda, a Norland trained nanny with over 30 years experience as a nanny and governess. Amanda has worked in London, Europe, the Middle East and Russia for many high profile, VIP clients and for Royal families worldwide. Amanda has worked as a university lecturer teaching on a range of early years courses and as a freelance journalist, writing for a range of child care publications and national newspapers. Amanda has contributed to a number of child care books and has been interviewed by the national and international press. She has appeared on numerous occasions on TV as well as being interviewed on the radio. Amanda has worked as a childcare consultant, advising families on problems regarding management, education and behaviour. Amanda was an advisor to Nursery World magazine and wrote the popular weekly problem page for nannies. Amanda has many years experience in nanny/governess recruitment and has been made a Fellow of the Recruitment and Employment Confederation, in recognition of her contribution to the industry.

At London Governess, we understand the importance of finding the perfect governess or nanny to educate your children. That’s why we insist on the highest quality candidates, and have consultants with the experience and insight to make the perfect match. We will guide and advise you throughout the process, from interviewing and selection, up until the moment your governess arrives, and beyond.

At London Governess, we know how important it is to choose the right person, so we have set our standards high.


New Services


Due to demand from our many overseas VIP clients, we have now started offering overseas nanny training courses worldwide for our clients in their own country. Amanda offers one week intensive courses, covering the age range from birth to school aged children, for those clients whose nannies may benefit from professional training. Families often have reliable, kind and caring staff to look after their children, but they lack the training and education to give the best opportunities to their children. The training is based on the British standard of excellence and will ensure your child is given the very best in care and education, to help them develop their full potential. Nannies are taught in small groups at a central hotel location, discretion is ensured and private courses in the clients home can also be arranged. Contact us for details of courses in your location.

We also offer UK and overseas child care consultancy and educational consultancy, please see our new services for details.

To ensure your home is run to the highest possible standard, ensuring a 5* level of service and efficiency, we now offer bespoke household training overseas and in the UK. Courses are tailor made to suit your home, staff and lifestyle. Please contact us for further details.


Only Proficient English Speaking Candidates


All our governesses are excellent English speakers, with at least 5 years of childcare experience and proper UK childcare and teaching qualifications. With expert teaching qualifications and years of experience, our governesses will properly educate school age children in a private household setting. They will teach English speech and manners, and will also ensure the children’s social and cultural development. Many of our child carers are bilingual. When you entrust your child into the care of one of our professional governesses and nannies, you do so with the utmost confidence and peace of mind.


One To One Service


We thoroughly check all our candidates, so you can have complete confidence in them. This includes a DBS check with the police. To be certain that we are offering the very best staff, we only look for candidates with a love of children, enthusiasm and warmth.

At London Governess we will find the candidate who best suits your family. She will be discreet and respectful. We employ a compatibility program that includes a psychological aspect, as well as vetting procedures which we have developed over a period of years. This attention to detail has contributed significantly to our success. And to ensure that you are thoroughly satisfied, our support continues long after the placement starts.
