Established British governess and domestic staffing agency

Little Ones is based in Central London. We are well renowned for our permanent governess services – both in London and globally. Our consultants are trained and experienced in placing governesses in Europe, the Middle East, Russia and beyond.

Our bilingual governesses are educated to the highest level

Our governess candidates come with years of experience in the care and tuition of pre-school and school-aged children. Each candidate has a particular method of educating and raising children – and we take care to match candidates with your family’s ethos and needs.

Our governesses and nannies undergo specialist vetting procedures developed over the years we have operated successfully as an agency. For more information on this, please visit Parents and Employers.

For a no obligation discussion about your childcare options or to view possible governess candidates, please contact Little Ones on +44 (0) 20 7183 0309 or view our consultants to contact one of our bilingual recruitment consultants directly.
