Unlike most overseas agencies, we place nannies solely across The Riviera. Most of our work is acquired through recommendation and word of mouth and we are careful to uphold our strong reputation by selecting only the finest nannies.

We aim to make our process as personal as possible using four steps to find the perfect nanny for you:

Step 1 - Your Family Unit

Our unique tailored approach enables us to gain a thorough understanding of your requirements as a family unit, your expectations of a what a nanny does, what level of care is required and what skills you require from your nanny to complement your family's lifestyle e.g. a competent skier, an interest in nutrition or language skills. We have years of experience and can also provide a wealth of knowledge on scheduling, contracts of employment, declaration and visas where required.

Step 2 - Ensuring the right connection

Following a rigorous selection process, only the nannies matching your criteria will be shortlisted for you. We will provide full CV's, a recent photograph and references if requested. We will then assist with setting up an initial interview and can offer you a selection of interview questions if required. We will obtain feedback from the nannies and yourselves.

Step 3 - Our Agreement

Following a successful interview we will draft an employment contract specifically for you. We can offer information on hours, salary, job descriptions and anything else you might require in your personal detailed agreement.

Step 4 - Aftercare

Following a placement within your family, a member or our team will be on hand to assess how things are working out and your level of satisfaction. In the unlikely event the match is not successful we will source a replacement free of charge (please see our terms and conditions for details).

We provide extensive ongoing client care and guidance. It is important for all parties that a nanny is happy in their new surroundings and we provide local networking to ensure that our nannies have support and social interaction.
