Testimonials

Marina Fogle, Founder, The Bump Class - Parent

"Willow Nannies is light years ahead of any other nanny agency I have used. The thought, professionalism, careful vetting that goes into the process is evident. Lizzie immediately understood the brief and rather than sending me 10 CVs of people that worked on paper, she sent me the nanny I needed. Throughout the process of interviewing, trial days, handover and start of employment she was always on hand to answer my questions and sent me documents outlining how each process would work with relevant and useful tips on how to make it work for me. As a busy working mother of two, I had dreaded the process of finding a new nanny but Willow made the experience seem almost effortless. I really couldn't recommend Lizzie more highly."

 


Claire, London
"We were looking for an energetic, bright, organised and fun nanny to look after three kids in a busy, high performing London household. Lizzie immediately understood our needs and, rather than make us fit the nannies on her books, she found the right nanny to fit us. I think what sets Willow apart is Lizzie's superior vetting skills which have come from both working as a nanny and living within the types of households seeking nannies. Her life experience has given her an innate insight into what makes the right fit and this protects the investment of your recruitment fee as well as the quality of your family life. It has been the best experience of all the household staff companies we have dealt with."

 

 


 

Robyn Chambers - Nanny

"Lizzie contacted me after seeing my profile online and the rest, as they say, is history!!
From our first telephone conversation, to meeting in person, Lizzie made me feel valued and incredibly supported. Her ability to match me with the right family straight away and put both myself and the parents at ease is testament to the care she takes in making sure she listened to both our needs and matched us perfectly.
I just want to say a big "thank you" for all the work you do, the care you take and the continuous support you provide me Lizzie. You are exceptional at what you do and I would highly recommend you to both potential nannies and parents alike."

"Thought I'd update you - Seems as if you've done it again! We love Sarai - she's doing a great job. The boys also love her. She is cooking some really interesting stuff and she's always flexible when we need it.

Thank you!"

 

 


 

Emily Retter - Parent
"I cannot recommend an 'agency' more highly than Willow Nannies & Maternity. I use inverted commas because finding a nanny though Lizzie felt nothing like that of an agency. Her personal, caring, down-to-earth and tailor made approach is what sets her apart. I was incredibly anxious about employing a full time nanny as our 2 and a half year old had been at full time nursery since 8 months old and the thought of him adjusting, as well as finding someone we could trust and feel happy leaving our children with daily, was stressful. We needed a nanny that could balance our Toddler's needs and that of our baby, who was 7 months at the time. Lizzie listened in depth to my must have list, also understanding that personality type was as important as qualifications. She took all our requirements on board and said she'd be in touch when she'd found the suitable candidate. We did not receive countless non-fitting CV's, as other agencies tend to bombard you with. We received one. And a note saying I've found your nanny. We interviewed and it was the Mary Poppins moment - our nanny was absolutely everything we had hoped for - and more. Lizzie helped us every step of the way with the interview and hiring process and still continues to check in with us today. Hand on heart, I know we would not have struck gold as we did with our incredible nanny, who we all adore already, had it not been for Willow! A million and one HUGE thank you's Lizzie!"

 


Katie Huttons - Parent

"Willow Nannies was hands down the best nanny agency I worked with. Unlike other agencies, Lizzie took the time to get to know me and really understand and help me clarify exactly what I was looking for. It is a hugely daunting process for a first time mother to find someone who you are happy to entrust your precious baby to, and I felt Lizzie very much understood this and was there to offer support and guidance at each step of the way. Instead of sending me endless cvs, she sent me carefully vetted, suitable candidates, backed up by helpful documents on all the administration a nanny hire entails. I wouldn't hesitate to highly recommend Willow Nannies."

 

 

 


 Georgina Downs - Nanny

"Lizzie has been amazing from start to finish. In our initial meeting, she took the time to get to know me, my experience and what I was looking for and managed to match me to my family instantly. She then continuously kept in touch offering support and advice throughout; from interview to handover to starting my new role. I am registered with many large Nanny recruitment agencies and have received little to no communication from them so it was brilliant to work with Lizzie who took the worry away from what can be a very stressful process! I am now settling in with my new family and thoroughly enjoying my new role all thanks to Lizzie. Thank you!"

 


Rita Araujo - Nanny

"I highly recommend Lizzie and Willow Nannies. I found the whole experience with Lizzie excellent. I felt she listened to what I needed, saw through to what was most important to me and put forward families that matched my requirements. Any small problems were dealt with immediately. I have and will continue to recommend Willow to any of my friends or families looking for perfect matches. I can't say and thank enough about all process. I found a great family, a great job and Lizzie was and still is in touch making sure everything is fine. Thank you!!!"

  


 C. De Silva - Parent

"Lizzie at Willow Nannies is a world apart from many agencies. She runs her own agency and the service you get is a personal one. She really takes the time to listen to your particular needs and to find the right nanny for your family. She is highly responsive and, as a past nanny herself, really cares about finding good quality nannies who genuinely want to work with children. She has helped us with permanent and temporary nannies and I couldn't recommend her highly enough." 

 


 Annie Nagy - Nanny

"I am registered with many nanny agencies and although some of them are great, I have never met anyone like Lizzie! I can't be grateful enough for the perfect match she found for me in a family. She did follow ups even months after I've been working for them, making sure that things are going smoothly between me and the family. When I had to leave them (they moved abroad), Lizzie helped me again with my search. Even though she didn't have a suitable family at that moment, she did check up with me often to make me sure I'm not forgotten. That is exactly I would expect from a nanny agency! A massive thank you, Lizzie!"

 


 Laird Ward - Parent

"We can't speak highly enough of the service we received from Lizzie at Willow Nannies. We asked Lizzie to find us a Spanish speaking nanny at short notice and she showed us several excellent candidates, any of whom we would have considered hiring. Lizzie prepared us and the nannies thoroughly and the end result is that we now have the best nanny we've ever had."

 


Marie Mitchell - Nanny

"Lizzie, can I please say that I truly appreciate all the help and assistence you have been giving me.  It is so rare to receive such a high level of service from someone who you only meet face to face for an hour or so.  I always endeavour to treat those how I wish to be treated, although it is not always reciprocated.  I can honestly say, with your company, it is and I thank you for that" - Marie Mitchell (Nanny)



Sarah Gooding - Parent

"Thank you tremendously for all your help and input. I have never used nanny agencies before but my recent experience has shown you have been by far the most professional, thorough, honest and reliable outfit."
