Ofsted Registered Nannies and Tax Free childcare

Nannies who are Ofsted registered enable parents to use their childcare vouchers.  The nannies are therefore more employable and there is an increasing demand for ofsted registered nannies due to the financial benefits they bring.  In addition to this they have proved that they are committed to their chosen profession and are ‘career nannies’  

The London Nanny Agency will support and advise the nanny through her application.  It can take up to 12 weeks to process.  We do advise that if a nanny is required to become Ofsted registered by the parents then the parents pay for the cost of it as it is of financial benefit to them, not the nanny.  This should be negotiated and agreed at the time of the job offer and acceptance

There is now a new government scheme called Tax Free Childcare (TFC).  This is being rolled out over 2017 and it is important that parents check to see which system is relevant for them (Ofsted childcare vouchers or TFC).  All nannies have to be Ofsted registered for both schemes.  Please see this  link for  more explanation
