We originally contacted The Nurtured Child to find a temporary emergency 24-hour nanny/sleep trainer when I nearly had a breakdown from a lack of sleep. Hend was very understanding and sensitive and took the time to really understand our family’s situation and needs. She was supportive and compassionate and full of helpful ideas, and within a day or two had found us a nanny who was able to come help us out. In less than a week, the nanny had gotten our daughter, who had been waking 4+ times a night, and feeding each time, down to waking once a night. We contacted Hend again several months later when we needed a permanent part-time nanny. Again, she took lots of time to listen. She sent us several candidates, communicated with us during the entire search, and eventually we found someone who was the right fit for our family. We are thrilled with our nanny, and the whole experience with The Nurtured Child was very positive. We hope to have our nanny with us for a very long time, but if we ever needed to search again Hend would be the first person I’d call.Elizabeth, mother, 6th November 2020
I am so pleased with The Nurtured Child services and I can highly recommend it.
I had contacted recently Hend while looking for an after school nanny. Although my request was urgent, Hend was able to shortlist a number of local potential candidates that can tick all the boxes in less than 24hrs. I was provided immediately with the candidates contact numbers and their CVs. Furthermore, the lady I got in touch with was very professional, honest and punctual. She came to meet me and the boys beforehand and get to know our children’s needs.
I am also happy to be contacted for a reference.

“When starting to look for a new nanny position , I got contacted by Hend who is the head of the agency called “The Nurtured Child“. During previous job hunts I signed up with several agencies , but after came to the conclusion that agencies are not giving me the support I was looking for. Not so with this one though! From the very beginning with Hend introducing me to the job description, her arranging interviews and in the end negotiating terms of the contract – I felt professionally supported throughout the whole process. She found the right balance between doing what is right for the family and supporting me as a nanny with any issue, also after I started the job. An agency that is definitely setting an example from which most other agencies can only learn from.”

“Very happy to work with Hend from The Nurtured Child to find a nanny for my son. Friendly, open communication, great effort from her side to customise a solution form me – even cover 2- 3 weeks of a transition period with an interim nanny. Moreover flexibility in terms and conditions is unique. Nannies Hend recommends cover all the professional prerequisites and are of good character, love children and are willing to do the ‘extra mile’ for the children they are looking after. It is important I feel that they don’t see this just as a job, but as an offering of care. I’m very happy with the nanny currently looking after my son and I highly recommend the Nurtured Child to my friends who are searching for a nanny.”

“I was fortunate enough to work with Hend from The Nurtured Child to find a nanny for my baby upon my return to work. I had a specific ask, as I wanted a bilingual German nanny, and she listened carefully and sourced excellent candidates for our needs. We chose a nanny from The Nurtured Child, and have been beyond happy with her. Hend helped us to create an appropriate contract, setting in period, and even helped us find backup nannies for when our nanny was on holiday.”
