What Is A Mothers Help?

Mothers Help and Junior Nannies work in family homes providing an extra pair of hands around the home usually alongside a parent.  We carefully select candidates for our books based on their experience, professionalism and references. A Snuggles nanny will have relevant experience with the age group they are placed with and will have been thoroughly vetted by us using our 6 step process.

They are more experienced than an Au Pair but do not yet have the extensive childcare experience that career nannies hold.  For this reason, the role is mostly shared care alongside parents, with occasional sole charge care of the children.
