Christian Nannies will listen to the nanny’s requirements and needs, and best match these with potential families. As a professional nanny agency, we strive for our nannies to stay with their chosen families for as long as possible, as this brings stability and structure for the entire family. This creates a strong bond between the child and the nanny, which is fundamental to the child’s development. 

Christian Nannies will encourage great relationships throughout the nanny’s time with a family, which is why clear communication is vital for both the nanny and the family. If necessary we will provide ongoing support to the nanny in areas that the nanny may find challenging.

Please do not hesitate to contact us if you simply need some guidance or have any questions.

Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.

The Process

Step 1

Once Christian Nannies has received the nanny’s completed application form and CV and we are happy to proceed, the nanny will be invited for an in-depth interview in person. We take the time to listen to the nanny as our goal is to have a great understanding of what’s important and required by the nanny. Once we are able to, we will inform the nanny whether they have registered successfully or not.

Step 2

When a suitable role within a family becomes available, we will ask if the nanny would like to be put forward for the job role. If a nanny is invited to attend an interview with a family, we will arrange this meeting and if needed any other interviews that may be requested.

Step 3

If a family decides to offer the nanny employment and the nanny accepts the families offer, Christian Nannies will arrange an agreed start date. The nanny will receive an employment contract from their new employer and will be given an opportunity to ask any questions or request to make any changes both parties are happy with, before the signing of the employment contract.

Becoming Ofsted registered

Registering with Ofsted on the voluntary register may prove very useful as some families prefer if the nanny that they welcome into their family is Ofsted registered or willing to become. Families are able to benefit from Childcare Vouchers if they employ a nanny that is Ofsted registered and therefore will be able to save on their childcare costs. Ofsted registration fee costs £103 per annum. This registration needs to be renewed yearly. To become registered with Ofsted on the voluntary register, the nanny will need to meet certain requirements.

Requirements to Register

Tax-Free Childcare

Nannies that register with Ofsted will be able to sign up for the Tax-Free Childcare. This allows working parents to benefit from this new government scheme. Signing up to this scheme is a very simple process. Tax-Free Childcare is gradually replacing the current Childcare Vouchers. For more information regarding the new government scheme, Nanny Tax is the government’s advisory forum, helping nannies and employers.
