About our Bespoke Nanny Agency

"We offer a bespoke nanny service where we’ll hand pick the nanny to perfectly match your needs" 



Homebodies was founded in London in 2011 with the explicit objective of matching the very best and most suitable nannies to families who led busy and exciting lives. Today we’ve grown into one of the most prestigious specialist nanny services in London and won the Best Nanny Agency of the Year Award 2023.
Homebodies is different from our competitors by being a bespoke nanny agency who only focus on recruiting full-time nannies, taking our time to get to know you, so we can successfully match the nannies we know to your family. This dedication means that we support you throughout the whole process and we build relationships for the long term with families and nannies alike.

Our Approach

Because we provide bespoke nannies, we carefully hand-select and get to know all our nannies, so we can place them successfully to suit a family's specific needs and requirements.

We are always discreet, professional, and understand our clients' busy lifestyles. Our aim is to make the nanny finding process smooth, stress-free, and even pleasurable.

Our Standards

Most of our clients and nannies recommend us to their friends and colleagues, having seen first-hand the dedication and expertise we offer. They are especially impressed by our dedication to finding a bespoke nanny who perfectly fits the family's needs.
We take security and privacy very seriously and understand the importance of this in your home. We are committed to supporting each client with the entire recruitment process from start to finish, being on call for advice even during out-of-office hours. As a result, we have an exceptional success rate.

We assign you a dedicated expert to select the highest calibre candidates with your unique needs in mind and have matched the right nanny to hundreds of families, giving them complete peace of mind.


"We are not just ANY nanny agency"

About Our Founder


I grew up in Scotland and moved to London to start a career as a teacher in 1997.  I worked in primary schools for over ten years and then in a Children’s Centre as an early childhood specialist teacher, supporting parents with their babies and toddlers as well as working with the local nurseries and childminders. 


I always had a passion for working with children and I loved supporting parents, so in 2011 I decided to join forces with a friend and we set up our bespoke nanny agency, Homebodies.  During this time I had my first daughter and then when she was only 14 months old my twins were born. 


At the time I did not have any family support in London and I recognised that having the right nanny was crucial for my return to work and for my sanity!  I had an excellent maternity nurse when my twins were born and I have employed nannies over the years so I have a very good understanding of the partnership and relationship between a family and their nanny.


The best way to get started is to book a call and we can talk through everything.
