Welcome to Hopes and Dreams Nanny and Babysitting Agency

our approach

Support every step of the way

We have been providing outstanding Nanny, Mother’s Help and Babysitting services since 1997, to both prestigious hotels and to families across London.

Initially helping families who needed a Babysitter for an evening during their stay in one of London’s top hotels, our Childcare Services have expanded into a wider range as our customers’ needs have changed.

We pride ourselves on the calibre of our excellent Nannies, Mother’s Helps and professional Babysitters, all of whom are dedicated to providing the best child care possible – and they all undergo rigorous screening before working with us.

Working closely with the Ofsted rated ‘Outstanding’ and award winning Hopes and Dreams Montessori Nursery sets us apart from other agencies. We are able to access top quality Childcare staff who are working with young children like yours on a daily basis.
