“Your Local Affordable Nanny Agency with the Personal Touch”

West Country Nannies and Childcare Agency are a local agency, with offices in both the South West and North West of Devon, providing accessible and reachable contact throughout Cornwall, Devon, Dorset and parts of Somerset.

West Country Nannies and Childcare Agency offers a wide range of child care services. Whether you are seeking occasional cover to assist your family’s needs or require a full traditional nanny service and accompanying domestic staff, we can offer a full range to suit you. We therefore divide our agency into three different categories, two of which depend on the level of service required by the family and one for special occasions.

We have nannies that are fully trained, qualified and provide a very high standard of references.

Equally we have nannies that are in need of experience and training and perhaps seeking a different avenue of childcare. We understand not all families require the same level and therefore provide a more economic service. However we personally interview every potential client. We thoroughly check references, and former experience. All our nannies must have a CRB check no less than 12 months old and we do our utmost to find the most suitable match, giving you the peace of mind that by using West Country Nannies and Childcare Agency you can relax and let us do all the work to provide you the best possible service we can offer.

We try to interview our families ensuring the finest service we can offer and find the best possible match for both families and nannies.

We understand the need for childcare support, and actively encourage communication where appropriate, but only with your personal agreement.

We also offer a traditional service, which includes a comprehensive range of housekeepers, butlers, chauffeurs and other domestic staff. We can also provide high quality catering service for special events.



Responsible for South Devon, Dorset and West Somerset.

If you are seeking childcare and you live in East and South Devon, Dorset or West Somerset, I am your point of contact. My name is Kate Smallwood – I am Devon-born and bred and understand the need for, and the difficulties of childcare in rural areas. Like so many young people seeking a career in child care, I started babysitting at the age of 15, 5 nights a week! I am NNEB trained and have cared for children, primarily in private homes, for the past 9 years. I am enthusiastic about my work and strive to introduce parents and nannies who are compatible.

I have experience and an understanding of the role of – Proxy parenting. Live-in Nanny. Full time and Part time Nanny. Mother’s help. I have gained a great deal of personal knowledge and understanding from filling these child care roles, which I still enjoy. I currently work as a part-time Nanny for three different families in Devon. I love my work, and feel that the South West deserves a dedicated Nanny Agency which can offer local knowledge, combined with a professional approach.

Responsible for Mid, North & West Devon and Cornwall My name is May Daniels and I work in partnership with Kate, but primarily care for the mid to North and West of Devon and Cornwall regions.

I have nearly 30 years experience of working with children and over 7 years in the recruitment industry. I began my career caring for children whilst still studying in education. I travelled as a live-in nanny in some of the most exclusive homes in England, working alongside many other domestic staff. I have owned and managed my own children’s Day nursery working closely with social services protecting potentially vulnerable children.

I have seen and experienced vast changes in the Nanny industry over the last three decades, and none more-so than in the West Country. Nannies are now more commonly referred to by their own name and few are still expected to wear uniform. There is an increasing trend to build relationships between clients and candidates and such changes I welcome as a positive environment for today’s children. I am a mother myself and have experienced many of the parenthood concerns at first hand.
