Childcare Agency London

London Governess is a specialist, Knightsbridge based recruitment agency supplying professional governesses, highly qualified nannies and private maternity nurses to successful international families abroad and in the UK.

Our childcare professionals are selected to the most exacting standards. Before being accepted onto our database, we interview each applicant in person. To be sure you can be completely confident in the individual to whom you are entrusting your child, we then check their references and police DBS status thoroughly.
