A WINCHESTER childcare service has launched a new nanny agency.

Hartley House @ Home is offering parents use of professional nannies to help around the home.

The business was founded by Susan Hartley-Raven in 2007, who also runs two Montessori nursery schools in Winchester, and helps families with babysitting, daytime and after-school care.

Parents with long-standing experience of recruitment are running the agency to ensure a family’s needs are met.

Managing director Vicky Othen said: “Being a full time working mother of two children I know how difficult it is to find quality childcare to fit around my working hours and the children’s schooling. With the opening of the nanny agency Hartley House @ Home now provides a total childcare service.”

Hartley House @ Home pledges all nannies will create a safe, nurturing environment for children to develop in.

Every candidate who applies to be a nanny must have relevant experience and qualifications and will have police checks.
