About ANA

The Association of Nanny Agencies is an organisation that supports and informs its members on current laws, regulations in the childcare industry, employment rights and responsibilities and new legislation. ANA aims to promote good practice, quality service and legal compliance by all members.

We aim to provide a level of measurability, whereby all member Agencies can be judged against the high standards created and monitored by ANA.

In January 2013 ANA became a Trade Association


ANA is committed to identifying, analysing and developing nationally accepted strict criteria for agencies to work to, enabling them to become better equipped to provide families and nannies with a good standard of services.

Agency Code of Conduct

We have established a Professional Code of Conduct for all ANA agencies, ensuring they meet with their legal obligations and duty of care for both the childcarer and the employer.

Parents seeking a childcarer through an agency will be assured that every possible check has been performed regarding the overall suitability of a candidate, ensuring their children will be cared for in the most professional manner. The childcarer will possess the skills appropriate for the child/ren's age group, ability and/or special needs.

What is an ANA Approved Agency?

  • A nationally recognised reputable agency
  • An Agency that follows our codes of Best Practice
  • Is Registered with Data Protection
  • Complies with its insurance and legal responsibilities
  • Part of a growing network of like-minded Agencies


We support other professional organisations involved in promoting better Codes of Practice within the industry
