We have a huge selection of staff to choose from – the vast majority having qualified locally and having been with us since the day they left college!


You need it? We will find it for you – Full Time Nannies, Part Time Nannies, Mother’s Helps, Weekend Nannies, Overnight Nannies, Babysitters, Wedding & Event Nannies, Before & After School Sitters – all either temporary or permanent.

Thinking about hiring a Maternity Nurse

or Night Nanny?

Are you exhausted from the demands of looking after your little one all day, and struggling to get up through the night as well?

Feel like you just need a decent nights sleep, or some expert guidance on routines, baby care and how best to structure your day?

Would you like someone highly experienced with newborns to come and show you the ropes and give you time to rest and recharge? After all, babies don’t arrive with an instruction manual!

We have a wide range of Maternity Staff who all come highly recommended, trained and who are very experienced at looking after newborn babies (and their new parents!) in the early weeks and months after baby’s arrival.

Whether you’d like hands on help in the day, 24 hour or just overnight care so you can catch up on some uninterrupted sleep while leaving your baby in capable hands, Daisychain Maternity can find you your perfect Maternity Nurse or Night Nanny.

We pride ourselves on being very quick to deal with your requirements. Just fill in our simple Registration Form; we know all the
right questions to ask and can give you as much guidance as you need – and you will have suitable
candidates arriving in your inbox usually within the hour – at the very latest 2 hours!

Need Nursery Staff?

If you are looking for nursery staff,
we are the Agency to come to!

Most childcare agencies specialise in Nannies alone, but here at Daisychain we have ALWAYS recruited childcare staff into nurseries as well as families! We deal with nurseries on a daily basis and would love to add you to our long list of satisfied nursery clients.


We recruit for nurseries – literally dozens of individuals, small chains and large chain nurseries are recruiting both temporary and permanent nursery staff through us every single week.


We currently supply nurseries throughout Buckinghamshire, Hertfordshire, Middlesex and Berkshire. You can understand why we consider ourselves the experts! We have a constantly being re-stocked supply of:


  • NVQ 1, 2, 3 & 4 Nursery Nurses
  • Room Leaders ~ Supervisors
  • Deputy Managers – Managers

Also carefully selected Trainees – only ones who we feel will take full advantage of training and are focused on a career in childcare.


We have well established relationships with the local colleges – each year we gain access to the newly qualified nursery nurses and place the majority in local, reputable nurseries.


We offer a good guarantee period and a free replacement if things aren’t working out within the first 8 weeks.


Fill in our Online Registration Form or call our Nursery Consultant and this will set the ball rolling – we will either have the right person for you immediately or we will begin sourcing them for you!


And remember – it costs you NOTHING to interview candidates – a fee only becomes payable when we find you exactly the right person.


And our fee of 10% of the first year’s annual salary per nursery placement means we are a VERY affordable option.

parent reviews

We are one of the UKs leading Nanny Agencies,
here’s just a small sample of what our clients are saying.

  • I applied to Daisychain Nannies via email a few weeks ago which was very easy to do. I then had a lovely lady Sarah who called me and we had an over the phone interview via FaceTime. Sarah was very friendly and welcoming and made me feel very confident and at ease. She immediately reassured me and made me feel that she would support me as best she could to find me the perfect family. I couldn't recommend her enough and feel very confident that she will find me a good family.

  • I wanted to say a huge thank you to you and your amazing staff. They were all fantastic on the day (and considering they were thrown straight in as it was so busy!!!) I was re-assured that they were up to speed on their 9 acute special needs children. Your Nannies were flexible, friendly and professional. My colleague will send you over the parent evaluations – please could you pass this onto your staff so they can read the lovely comments.

    I would certainly love to work with you again.

    Kindest Regards and Many Thanks again for helping to make this very special event a success for all the parents and children.

  • Katie Quin is by far, the most efficient, caring, trustworthy, kind, and hardworking Nanny Recruiter I have come across.

    This is my first baby, and I have naturally been very picky on who I chose to help me.

    I used 3 other professional nanny agencies before I fell across Katie at Daisychain, and I can honestly say, I dropped all 3 of them almost instantaneously to work exclusively with Katie after our second conversation as I had so much trust and faith in her.

    She understood my needs from literally day one, and in the end, it was such a hard decision for me to choose the right Nanny, as she had given me so many great ones to interview. I was spoilt for choice.

    But Katie ultimately helped me make my mind up in finding the perfect Nanny since she had really taken time out to understand me as a person too. Katie is a very special lady and has an incredibly natural gift in what she does.

    I hope you get to benefit and enjoy the results as much as we certainly did.
