About

Why We Started

Windsor House Nannies was founded by two nannies, both of whom have worked for many families and facilities caring for and educating a large number of children. Our greatest love and achievements are the children we have cared for. As such, we believe all children should have the best care with a nurturing and encouraging environment that only trained professionals can provide. Recently, there has been an influx of individuals claiming to be child care professionals with little to no experience. As nannies ourselves, we first and foremost understand that the job is a special one, a position that requires dedication, experience, training and a commitment to career. We see that at times being a nanny is dismissed as being a stop gap job - a position that anyone who likes kids can undertake. However, being a nanny is much more to us. We want to be able to match trained child care professionals with families so that your children can get the best care available.
