Absolute Childcare nanny agency are fabulous! Sandy has worked really hard to find me a nanny who fits in with us and understand what we want. She used her own contacts, posted our role on appropriate internet sites and then screened and interviewed all the applicants. It has also been really helpful having someone to guide me through what to look for, things to consider in a contract, what is reasonable to expect a nanny to do etc. She really did go the extra mile (including working at weekends and evenings) to fill our position. Can’t recommend her highly enough!” - Louise, Richmond
Sandy at Absolute Childcare has been fantastic, she is always there and is extremely proactive and will do whatever it takes to find the right resource for you. She clearly knows the market and if very caring and considerate to your needs. I have already recommended her to others and will continue to do so. Not only that, the fees are reasonable and they have a 3 month no charge policy if for any reason your nanny doesn’t work out. - Jim, E.Twickenham
We have recently employed an After School Care Nanny through Absolute Childcare and would like to say Thank you for a really professional service. Most agencies we called didn’t deal with After School placements so we were pleasantly surprised when you said you could help! We are delighted with Laura and can’t thank you enough! - Monica, Barnes
A big thank-you to sandy for finding me the perfect job!! I never thought I would find a family who would not only be able to accommodate a massive Africa trip (58 days) but would also be such a perfect family for me to work alongside with. Thanks for setting me up with the interview and keeping in touch with me throughout the process. I would highly recommend this agency to other nannies and parents. - Stephanie McGregor (Nanny)
I'd been told by our previous agencies that I'd set them a near impossible brief. A friend recommended Absolute Childcare and when I contacted Sandy, she was helpful and positive right from the start. Best of all, she delivered on her promise and produced 2 candidates within 2 days! Sandy managed both the nanny and us very well, so there have been no surprises or misunderstandings. Everything has worked perfectly from day one. I would have no hesitation in recommending Absolute Childcare to our friends. - John Soones. Hampton
I was really pleased with the service i received from Absolute Childcare - Sandy was extremely professional & diligent and really cared that I found the right nanny for my family. I would definitely recommend her. - Sheena, Kew
I would recommend using Absolute Childcare. Sandy was very friendly, proactive and honest throughout our nanny search and kept me fully updated. We had a slightly unusual requirement due to flexibility required on days and Sandy worked with us to find a solution. When the nanny we initially appointed withdrew at the last minute (not due to any fault of Sandy's!) Sandy immediately recommenced our search with continued enthusiasm to find an alternative which I believe worked out better for us in the end. Parents and kids both very happy. - Kate, Teddington
Sandy works with both families and nannies to find the perfect match for you. I was always kept in the loop about things and was always given support and advice. The process was so quick and now I love my job and the family I am working with. Would definitely recommend any families or nannies looking for that extra special touch! - Aimie, Teddington (Nanny)
The whole process was simple and easy, with a perfect match for our requirements being found very quickly. - James, Kingston
Sandy was absolutely brilliant. She held my hand through the whole process and constantly went over and above the call of duty. I cannot recommend her highly enough – a compassionate and professional person to help you through the difficult choices associated with caring for your child/children and venturing back to work. She has personal as well as practical experience and advice and I wouldn’t search for a nanny without her. - Victoria, Hampton Hill
Sandy, you've been really great to work with, i am glad I chose Absolute Childcare. Many thanks for the support and hard work. - Christine, Twickenham
You are one of the nicest agencies I've spoken to thanks again. Jenni - Jenni (Nanny)

Sandy @absolute childcare has made the process of returning to work after having a baby a far less daunting experience. She listened to what I needed and considered myself and my son. She has been the most professional and reliable agency I have ever used. I would highly recommend and will be doing so to fellow nannies and families alike. - Elaine, (Nanny)
I'd like to write something to say how fantastic i have found Sandy at Absolute Childcare nanny agency. I found myself in the unfortunate position of being made redundant after four years in a job and i was taken a bit by suprise and rang sandy the following morning still reeling from my news. All i can say is what a good decision that turned out to be! I was offered such a kind and caring attitude more than i have been offered before, her advice and support has been invaluable and after many conversations, help to update my cv and encouragment, i have been able to secure a wonderful new job! Thankyou so much for really going above and beyond what would i would have expected from an agency. - Claire, Feltham. (Nanny)
Thanks to sandy and her colleagues I was able to make a very smooth transition from my previous nanny role.

Thanks to sandy and the team I have two sole care jobs that work perfectly for me and my situation. I am very happy recommending absolute Childcare nanny agency to my friends and other nannies. - Donna, Hounslow. (Nanny)
Sandy took all the hassle out of finding a nanny for me. She took a very detailed brief and really took the time to understand our needs as a family. She put forward a good selection of strong callibre candidates and was able to refine our requirements after each interview. After seeing four applicants we had found the perfect solution for our household. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Absolute Childcare to my friends; Sandy is great to work with and she really did save me a lot of time and energy and helped me find exactly what I was looking for. - Helen, Kew

Having tried numerous of the 'big agencies' and sifted through 100s of unsuitable candidates cvs a friend thankfully recommended Absolute Childcare. A small agency run by the fantastic Sandy. Sandy listened to my needs and understood straight away the type of candidate we needed. I was provided with a high calibre of candidates, all pre checked and with references. Sandy not only helped finding an excellent match for the family but also provided great advice. Thank you Sandy, I can't recommend you highly enough. You really took the stress out of it for me. - Sarah, Ealing W5
Sandy at Absolute Childcare has been wonderful. I have been in the nanny industry for nearly 15 years and I have never felt as confident in an agency. Sandy from the start has been professional, available and FULLY supportive. She considers both the family and the nanny and found me a great position that I am really enjoying. Thanks to Sandy I am a very happy nanny! - Alythia, (Nanny) Surbiton.
I would highly recommend Absolute Childcare. Sandy understood what I was looking for, a part-time nanny position where I could bring my daughter with me, and as a result I am now working for a lovely family where I can do just that! Thank you Sandy! - Lesley, (Nanny)
I have dealt with many childcare agencies in the past 12 years and Absolute Childcare is by far one of the best agencies out there. Sandy is extremely personal and excellent at keeping in touch. I will definitely recommend her services to families and nannies. - Ivi, (Nanny) Ealing.
Hi Sandy Hope all is well with you. I saw X at the Twins Club Summer Party this weekend, the person who had recommended you. It made me realise that I had not said thank you to you. So I just wanted to say a big thank you to for finding us X She is a fantastic nanny, a lovely person and the boys totally adore her. Life with x here is so much easier than before. She has been a godsend and we feel very lucky to have her as part of our lives. I’m sure you must have lots of very happy customers if you find them all x equivalents. Take care Ann. - Ann, Teddington.
Absolute childcare is THE only agency to deal with when it comes to household staff. Sandy is an absolute genius at finding matches between families and nannies. It's a personal touch that makes absolute childcare so brilliant, Sandy and her team listened to my job requirements and really found out about who I was before placing me in my dream job! - Natalie, Kensington. (Nanny)
I was very happy once I joined Absolute childcare, Sandy was brilliant at finding my perfect job match, which lead me to getting the job on my first interview! Thanks sandy. - Marie T (Nanny)
I would recommend Absolute Childcare to anyone looking for a nanny or looking for a family to nanny for. Sandy was very helpful and kept me in the loop at all times! I signed up with Absolute Childcare and within a few weeks, was placed with a family who I'm currently nannying for and I'm loving every minute of it! Sandy is very friendly and took the time to get to know me and what I was looking for. Not once did I feel pressured into taking a job or interviewing for a job that I wasn't entirely happy with. I've been at my new job for over a month now and Sandy is still in touch to see how I'm doing. All in all I would give Absolute Childcare a 10/10 every time, big thank you for all your help :) - Kayleigh (Nanny)
We had been in touch with other agencies but could immediately tell that Sandy at Absolute Childcare would provide a better, more tailored and professional service. She paid such close attention to our brief that we employed the first nanny she sent us. We found other agencies had a more scattergun and less effective approach. We couldn't be happier with our nanny. - Emma, Twickenham
Absolute are very knowledgeable, thorough and honest - exactly what you need when looking for childcare! - Sarah A., Richmond
I wanted to say a massive thank you for all your help. I thoroughly enjoyed my time with little X and X and will be sure to keep in contact with the family. Hope you're well! All the best. Ceri x - Ceri (Nanny)
Thanks again for all your time at the outset, it was a fantastic source of support to me as I had become very anxious that we would never find someone that suited us and the boys. Thank you! All the best! - Mrs G. Twickenham
What differentiates Absolute Childcare from the other agencies is that Sandy really listens and ‘gets’ peoples challenges and concerns. During our search Sandy made me feel that she was really thinking about the right match for our family. It’s a very rare and special skill that she has. I have recommended Absolute Childcare to a friend with great success and wouldn’t hesitate to do so again. - Sarah, Chiswick
I've passed your details onto a friend of mine who's looking for a nanny, I said you were the best! - Amanda, Hampton.
Thank you for your help and I will definitely recommend your services to friends. Warm Regards Teresa - Teresa, Kew
I can’t recommend Sandy at Absolute Childcare enough - she helped us find the perfect nanny! We had previously registered with other agencies and looked online and hadn’t found the right person. Then we found Absolute Childcare and registered with Sandy - if only we’d found Sandy sooner! She took time to understand what we needed and only forwarded candidates who were suitable. She never wasted our time, which helped so much. Thank you so much Sandy. - Alexandra, Richmond
Thank you for all your invaluable help we really appreciated it, best james and Sarah - James - Teddington
As a professional Nanny who has used agencies in the past I have been really impressed by the service I received at Absolute Childcare. I was met in person to understand my requirements and only put me forward to the roles that actually matched my criteria. Sandy was knowledgeable about the roles she was recruiting for and I always felt fully informed and supported. Communication throughout was caring and consistent and no pressure was ever put on me to take a role. I am very happy to recommend the agency and love my new role! Thank you! Joan, Nanny, Richmond. - Joan (Nanny) Richmond
I can't think of anything more important and essential than getting the right care for your kids. Sandy provides a great service for you to get just that. She has an accurate and honest view of her candidates and quickly gets to understand what is important for you. Most importantly she takes responsibility for the search and won't give up until she has found you the right person, however tight the timeframes (even on Christmas Eve!) - Charlie, TW1
I would like to thank you for all your help in finding our Nanny. I am absolutely delighted with her and think she has fitted in really well. I glad she is loving the job too, long may it continue. Thanks again for all your help. - Jenny, TW1
It is rare to find a nanny agency which takes such care in understanding the client's needs and matching them with the right nanny. Sandy is fantastic at that and I really appreciated it. She is thorough in her reference checks, very responsive and a pleasure to deal with. - Fiona, Richmond
Thank you so much for all your help - it had taken sooooo much stress off me! Quite a few of the mums at the School have asked me how I found my nanny so I have passed your name on, and will continue to do so! - Louise, Strawberry Hill.
