I would highly recommend Chilton Au Pairs as Chilton added a personal touch to everything they did. Noreen has been extremely accommodating in finding the perfect nanny to fit my family and has provided an excellent service to us all. I am more than happy to recommend her services.

Noreen, I knew that you were the right person to put her in touch with because you were very kind with me which what I needed at the time with our circumstances surrounding disaster nanny story from London. Thank you so much again for the placement. We love her….

“It’s a Dynamic Training Centre which I have personally enjoyed and benefited from its practice in fairness without the choice of race, colour of nationality.”

“I have to say that we are VERY happy with our new nanny.  She is sweet, and very good with the kids. She is doing lots of arts and crafts with them and they have taken to her. Fantastic placement! Thank you for your hard work. You are an inspiration and I really respect what you’re doing for all these women.

You’ve simply saved me.
I continue to share your details with anyone who asks!”

Chilton’s no upfront fee really made me feel that they were willing to put the work in to find the right person for our family and not just make us another insignificant person for their businesses success.
