Welcome to the Association of Nanny Agencies (The ANA).
We help both families and professional child-carers by providing a wealth of practical information and resources.
This website enables you to:
• Find reputable and ANA approved childcare agencies across the UK
• Access local and current nanny, maternity, childcare and nursery positions
• Gain support and guidance from ANA registered agencies
• Receive notifications by e-mail when a new job is listed in your area (Facility to come)
• Find up to date information on training courses, career and qualification options.
The Association of Nanny Agencies (ANA) exists with the intention of “Making Standards Matter”.
Our Association is intended for every UK Childcare Agency looking to be seen and acknowledged by Clients, potential Clients and Applicants, as having the highest levels of work practice and professional excellence, and who wishes to become a member of the UK’s fastest growing network of Childcare Agencies.
We are a Trade Association that supports and informs its’ Agency members on current laws, regulations in the childcare industry, employment rights and responsibilities and new legislation.
We promote a professional Code of Conduct, strict criteria, and standards of good Agency practice, quality service, duty of care, and legal compliance by all members.
For our Clients and Applicants, it means that when you use an Agency displaying our logo, you can be sure of the standard of that member Agency’s work, and also have the reassurance of your chosen Agency’s accountability.
