Nanny Review

Daisychain nannies is by far the BEST childcare agency without a doubt. From all the ones I am signed with (and I’m with plenty!), Daisychain is definitely top of the list for me. Emily is such a kind, lovely and supportive person who makes the whole process of applying to jobs so easy and straightforward. I have found temp work through her. The service provided is 100%. Emily always gives updates and keeps in touch even after finding work which I really appreciate. Thank you so much Emily!

Client Review

I wanted to say a huge thank you to you and your amazing staff.


They were all fantastic on the day (and considering they were thrown straight in as it was so busy!!!) I was reassured that they were up to speed on their 9 acute special needs children.


Your Nannies were flexible, friendly and professional. My colleague will send you over the parent evaluations – please could you pass this onto your staff so they can read the lovely comments.

I would certainly love to work with you again.

Kindest Regards and Many Thanks again for helping to make this very special event a success for all the parents and children.

Nanny Review

I highly recommend Daisychain Nannies. Emily is very friendly and having been a nanny herself Emily understands our needs.


With very few jobs and so many nanny’s looking I can’t believe how quickly and easily I have found such a brilliant job thanks to Emily’s hard work (even liaising out of hours on a Saturday evening).


Definitely the best agency I have used

Employer Advice

If you employ a nanny in the UK and you pay them more than the National Insurance and Tax thresholds the law requires you to:

– Register as an employer with HMRC.

– Keep a payroll record and provide payslips to your nanny.

– Pay Employee’s income Tax and National Insurance Contributions.

- In most cases you must also contribute to a pension scheme for your nanny.

– Provide an annual summary (P60) of all these deductions and payments.

We highly recommend Way2paye and Nanny Matters for payroll services, and if you do use either of them, we'd be grateful if you could mention that you were informed about their company by Daisychain Nannies!

Both of these have handy salary calculators on their websites which you may find useful when considering salary.

We support the Nalo 'Go Gross' campaign and always advise agreeing wages in gross terms rather than net as this benefits both employers, and nannies!

We also encourage our nannies to consider membership of BAPN, the only UK Association for Professional Nannies - BAPN offer advice, support, training, discounts and mentoring for nannies plus more!


Daisychain Nannies are proud to be corporate members of BAPN and are committed to supporting high standards within the nannying profession.
