Nanny search made simple

Save time and effort with cost-effective and supported nanny search.


Your search can reach the thousands of nannies on our platform and on our social channels.

It’s free to start a search and you only need to join the site when you have made connections you wish to progress.

We look forward to taking your nanny search to the next level and finding the nanny you need.

How it works

It all starts with your profile; our simple, guided process takes around 10-minutes to complete and helps you capture everything you’d like to see in your new nanny.

Your nanny search will go beyond availability and distance to help you find the best possible childcare match for your family.  And you can run your initial search for free.

Search on the criteria that matter to you.

Making connections

We allow families and nannies to search on more criteria to make stronger childace connections.

Your personalised dashboard will show you nannies that best fit your criteria.

You then invite connections with the nanny profiles of most interest.

Own your nanny search

You are in control; review the matches and invite connections.

Once the nanny has reviewed and accepted your inviation – and if you are a member of the site – you are in direct contact with each other.

Boost your search with a bespoke advert

From your dashboard, select the boost option and secure an online ad campaign – fully managed by us – to get more interest in your role.

Join the site when you are ready to connect

There are no subscriptions, ongoing fees or commissions. When you find a nanny you want to contact, simply upgrade to membership to unlock direct messaging.

Payments start at as little as £6 to secure the contact details of a single jointly appproved nanny or you can join for a set period:  A week (£15), a month (£45) or 3 months (£65).  

Need you nanny in hurry?  You can also boost your search to secure a tailored social media campaign and promoted positions within the site.

Going beyond the search experience

Employing a nanny is a big decision: not only are they looking after your most precious little ones, but they also define you as a domestic employer.

Check out the Resources section and our Blog where you’ll find useful materials to help you create and maintain a strong working relationship with your nanny.

Ready to start finding a nanny?


To find a nanny, keep it simple

  • Boil your nanny search down to the things that matter:  Every additional request cuts down the pool of nannies that will meet your requirements
  • Priorities local:  Like any role, a shorter commute likely means a happier work/life balance
  • If it’s a part-time nanny search, be flexible:  Nannies taking part-time roles will likely have to mesh more than role together, so if you can flex a little, it will help you find your perfect nanny
  • Offer a pay rate that reflects the demands of your role:  Aspects like high experience and schedule flexibility command a premium that your salary will need to reflect

Our blog shares a suite of resources to help and support your nanny search.

Army of Nannies is a very intuitive and easy to use website run by a great professional team. We needed to find a temporary nanny urgently, and they helped us through the whole process (it was flawless!).

They care about your needs and finding a perfect nanny match!!

I can’t recommend Army of Nannies enough.

It was such an easy nanny finding process and you get the personal agency experience without the cost.

Within a couple of days we’d made a number of local nanny connections and we appointed our nanny in under two weeks.  10/10.
