Finding the right Nanny for your Private Household

Choosing the right nanny for your family is crucial to ensuring the well-being and development of your children. Each family has unique needs, and at Cora, we always aim to align each Nanny with your specific requirements. We understand the importance of this decision and through our private household recruitment services are dedicated to helping you find the perfect fit.

Below, we’ve put together a list of the different types of Nannies a private household might typically need, each offering distinct benefits:

Daily Nanny / Live-out Nanny

A Daily or Live-out Nanny commutes to your home daily and provides care during the agreed hours. This option is ideal for families who prefer their privacy during off-hours but need professional care and support throughout the day. These nannies can help with meal preparation, school runs, and engaging activities for your children.

Live-in Nanny

A Live-in Nanny resides in your home, offering around-the-clock availability. This arrangement is beneficial for families with demanding schedules or those who require more flexible childcare. Live-in Nannies often become an integral part of the household, providing consistent care and support.

Norland Nanny

Norland Nannies are trained at the prestigious Norland College in Bath, known for its rigorous childcare education. They are highly skilled and professional, often sought after for their expertise in child development and their ability to provide exceptional care. Families seeking the highest standard of nanny care may find a Norland Nanny to be the perfect choice.

Rota Nanny / Retainer Nanny

A Rota or Retainer Nanny works on a rotational schedule, often sharing duties with another nanny. This setup ensures that there is always a fresh and rested caregiver available. It is ideal for families needing continuous coverage, such as those with larger households, demanding careers or frequent travel.

Special Education Needs Nanny

A Special Education Needs (SEN) Nanny is trained to work with children who have additional needs, such as learning disabilities, physical disabilities, or behavioural challenges. These nannies have specialised skills and experience, ensuring your child receives the care and support necessary for their development.


A Governess is focused on the educational development of your children, often possessing a background in teaching. They provide structured learning and academic support, making them suitable for families prioritising education and intellectual growth. A Governess can complement the role of a nanny, offering a well-rounded approach to childcare.

Maternity Nurse

A Maternity Nurse specialises in caring for newborns and supporting new mothers during the postnatal period. They provide expert advice on feeding, sleeping routines, and general newborn care. This type of nanny is invaluable for families welcoming a new baby, ensuring a smooth transition during the early stages of parenthood.
