About Us

Little people matter…

Welcome to Hopes and Dreams Nanny and Babysitting Agency.

Our passion is making childcare an easy, enjoyable, and stress-free experience for families. Our reputation has been built on the satisfaction of our customer families and we strongly believe that the right caregiver helps your child thrive.

That is why we are dedicated to ensuring that we find the perfect match for your family.

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

We began by helping families who needed a Babysitter for the evening while staying at London’s top hotels.  Since then, our Childcare Services have expanded into a wider range as our customers’ needs have grown.

Our work with luxury Hotels is a special part of what we do. We match five-star hotels with five-star Babysitting Services. Our Childcare Specialist can look after your children in your hotel room, or they can take them out on outings. We can send Babysitters to any hotel in central London that you might choose.

We pride ourselves on the calibre of our excellent Nannies, Mother’s Help and professional Babysitters, all of whom provide the best childcare possible. Working closely with the award-winning, Ofsted-rated “Outstanding” Hopes and Dreams Montessori Nursery sets us apart from other agencies. We are able to access top quality childcare staff who work with young children like yours daily.  In fact some of our best Babysitters also work in our Nursery School.

We put a lot of care into recruiting our Childcare Specialists. Not only do we rigorously interview all our candidates face to face, but thanks to our Montessori Nursery School we have the facilities to do trial days with all our prospective candidates.
