Introducing HALCYON CHILDCARE encompassing HALCYON NANNIES, HALCYON AU PAIRS and HALCYON MATERNITY
At Halcyon Childcare we thoroughly understand how difficult finding really good childcare can be. We aim to offer our clients peace of mind by maintaining rigorous standards while at the same time providing a truly personal service. We know it is important to families that we listen very carefully to your needs and we often offer advice when families are not sure what the best childcare option may be.

Founding Principles of our Nanny Agency
I am a multi-lingual mother of 3 with 13 yrs experience as an executive in big global financial companies in Hong Kong and London. And I was an au pair myself twice during my student days.
I set up Halcyon because I am passionate about great customer service, love children and know how hard it can be for parents to find an outstanding individual you can really trust to care for your children.
So we asked families to tell us about their experiences of hiring a nanny and to give us their ideal wishlist.
Finding the right person is invariably time-consuming and often stressful.
You need to be able to leave the house knowing your children are safe and content. And you know the dangers of hiring a nanny directly.
You need to know your nanny is trustworthy, reliable and won't let you down. You need to know she is capable, dynamic and flexible. And you need to know she'll love your children and give them the best care possible.
You need a really high-calibre individual who takes pride in her work and the vital role she plays in your lives.
And finally, we have all heard stories of families who have suddenly found themselves left high and dry. I've been there myself more than once and it's no joke, particularly for those of us working who know that taking time off work for childcare reasons may lose you credibility.
You need an agency you can rely on in terms of its:
- Scrupulously strict recruitment and vetting policy
- Commitment to child safety through Paediatric First Aid Training
- Consistent efficiency and responsiveness
- Meticulous matching processes
- Attentive, friendly and personal service
- Keenness to build long-lasting relationships with you
We are proud to represent a brand of incomparable quality in childcare...
