    The interviews went exceptionally well. Congratulations on the selection; all four candidates are impressive. As you noted, Lauren stands out as the strongest candidate. She sets a high standard. She is kind, boasts an impressive curriculum, and her proficiency in Portuguese and Spanish will definitely make our life easier.

  • Noor, Jeddah, Saudi Arabia
    We found out about London Governess through a web search. Mrs. Godart provided us with a very personalised experience. All the candidates she selected for us were great, so we had many options. We have had our nanny for six months, and she is wonderful. Nothing is more important than your child and the comfort of knowing your baby is in good hands.

    The London Governess is amazing. They helped us find the most wonderful nanny for our son. Our nanny loves our child and treats him like her own, always keeping affection, care, and safety in mind. The London Governess helped us through the entire process of finding this loving woman for our first child. I have had such a wonderful experience with The London Governess that I have referred several friends, who are just as pleased.

  • Seema, Dubai, UAE
    Thank you so much for placing Maddy with us – she was absolutely wonderful. It's not easy to fit into a new family immediately, but Maddy managed it, and she was incredibly sweet and fun with Ellery. She understood and kept to our schedule with him perfectly. She made us feel very confident and comfortable leaving him with her as sole charge, and I genuinely couldn't have asked for a better nanny for our little man! We had a fabulous break and I only wish that Maddy was in London – I'd immediately snap her up as a full-time nanny! Many thanks.

  • Yang, Hong Kong, China
    Best agency I have ever worked with; you were with me every step of the way. Your friendly and helpful staff ensured I knew everything about the process before I started. You were quick to organise interview times and gave me all the information on the people I was interviewing. If it hadn't been for all your help, I would have been lost in the process. Three months later, I am so happy with your service and the governess I employed. She is a jewel! I would recommend you to any of my friends and family without hesitation.

  • Valerie, Nice, France
    I had just given birth to my first son when a family emergency called me away from the country for the week, and I needed someone to take care of my baby. You quickly found a professional maternity nurse to care for my son. When I returned home, I found everything as I had left it and my two-month-old son happy and well cared for. I can't thank you enough and will refer to your agency in the future if required.

Quick response to our requests and changes, keeping in touch 24/7. In short, both my boss and I are very satisfied. We will work only with you in the future! Thank you.

    Debora was wonderful last month. The parents and the children loved her. She was extremely efficient and great with the children. I know she is looking for a permanent position, but until she finds one, I would love to have her again next time the family is in London. Thank you for your excellent service.

  • Isolina, Reading, UK
    The Governess Course was fantastic value for money. At the beginning, it was also very useful to learn exactly what clients do and do not want and how best to approach new roles and families. It was very interesting to learn about the different cultures and how they view British governesses – I never knew our positions ranked so highly in certain places! Overall, I would recommend the governess training course to anybody wishing to gain a better insight into the world of VIP childcare and teaching. It will give anyone who takes part a real insight into how different cultures work with their governesses and how to present themselves in the best way possible.

    Your governess course was very informative and covered many topics and real-life situations. It reiterated and solidified handling various dynamics and responsibilities with careful planning, patience, respect, open communication, and good conduct. I will definitely be returning to it.
