Our agency is here for you. Our services are designed to make childcare as convenient as possible and ensure that all parties are looked after, from start to finish.

Our Charges

At Manny & Me we aim to make life as easy as possible for our clients and our candidates.  We are an introductory service, but our relationship with the people we work with doesn’t end there; we are always here to assist with everything involved with hiring a nanny and maintaining a happy working relationship.

Specific costs and charges are dependent on what you personally require. We have a minimum hourly charge, but any extra services are negotiated at point of contract agreement.


Mannies and nannies introduced by us are employed on a family payroll. We are associates of NannyTax and are happy to introduce any of our clients to this service, but equally able to assist with setting up a payroll through any other service provider.

Nannies, by law, have to be employed directly by the family they work for and more information on this can be found here.


Contrary to popular belief, a manny or nanny does not qualify to be self-employed. This is because they have one sole employer. For this reason, most families we work with choose to have us deal with the Tax and NI for them, as this can be very complicated and be extremely time consuming. More information on how to manage this yourself can be found here.


Our T&Cs are sent out to any enquiry straight away. These give families the full range of services that we offer and layout, in detail, how we operate.

Mannies and nannies wanting to know more about working with us, should not hesitate in getting in touch and we can go through the various ways in which you can become part of our growing team.


One of the big advantages of using a placement agency is the vetting process. At Manny & Me, only around 10% of prospective mannies and nannies are shortlisted for interviews and those shortlisted must have at least 3 years of professional childcare experience and a degree, most of which are childcare related. All mannies and nannies are interviewed in person allowing us to make sure they are passionate about providing responsible, engaging and fun childcare. Each candidate is Enhanced DBS checked and placed in the Update Service. All relevant documents are checked and verified, including identification documents. Finally, we gather as many references as possible for each candidate so that we can get a full picture of their work history.
