Find your perfect nanny & maternity care | Happy Nest

Hello, and welcome to Happy Nest

We’re a nanny agency that goes above and beyond in finding the perfect fit for your family, guiding you through the process, and looking after all the details.

Whether you’re looking for an extra pair of hands during the day, help before and after school until you return from work, or flexible working patterns to to cover shift-working, we can help. If you need a nanny that can also help with cleaning, with your business, or is bilingual, we can help there too. We love to meet all our families, get to know you and your requirements, then our team takes care of everything.  It’s that simple.

We’ve got everything covered

Happy Nest provides all the solutions that traditional childcare can’t.  We can help you find a long-term nanny that will support your family as your children grow, and we can also provide a specialist maternity nurse to help you through the first few weeks of bringing a new baby home. Whatever your needs, we do all the work required to find the right person, provide as much help and advice as you need, and look after all the arrangements. Only the best will do when it comes to choosing your nanny which is why Happy Nest’s recruitment process involves a thorough interview, referencing and screening. We also offer psychometric testing, Nanny Drive IQ and DBS (CRB) checks for additional peace of mind. Based in Chester, we are ideally located to help families in Cheshire, Manchester, the Wirral & Liverpool.

Who we are

We’re a well established nanny agency that provides only the best in service, staff and after-care.  Having helped many families find harmony at home, we can pass that advice and expertise onto you during our face-to-face consultation and throughout our relationship.  We only recruit highly-trained, professional and competent staff who are put through our extensive screening, referencing and interview process.

What we do

We are here to make the process of finding a nanny as simple and stress-free as possible. We go above and beyond our industry standards in every stage of our process.  We also communicate with you at every stage while we source the nanny that suits your needs.  Not only do we take care of finding you your perfect nanny, we can even help with contacts and payroll.  With Happy Nest, you really can leave everything to us.

How we work


We visit you in the comfort of your own home and find out exactly what help you need and when – whether that’s a long-term full-time live-in nanny or a short-term maternity nurse. You’ll be able to tell us exactly what’s important to you and what you’re looking for in a nanny.


We use various channels to attract applications from nannies that have the qualities and skills that you’re looking for. We shortlist the applicants, obtain verbal references and conduct interviews.  Suitable candidates that satisfy our criteria are then passed onto you to decide who you’d like to interview.

Guided Interview

We can attend the meeting between you and your selected applicant, introduce you and help you get acquainted.  As we will know both parties, we’ll be able to guide the interview to ensure that every important detail is discussed.


Once you’ve selected your nanny, we can help you get everything in place from contracts to payroll.  We can take care of any relevant paperwork and arrangements leading up to your nanny’s first day.  From there, we’ll keep in touch and are always available if you need us for anything else.
