The UK Nannies Matter campaign aims to have Nannies recognised as Professionals by advocating and regulating Nannies in all child-care settings within the UK

This petition will be presented to MPs and Early Years policy makers across the country to advocate for these positive changes within the Nanny industry.

  • Give parents the reassurance of grades of childcare and value for salaries offered
  • Increase the safety of Nannies and safeguard children

Proposed Min Requirements of Prof Status:
