Nanny of the Year Award

Nannies get very little recognition in the childcare industry. They have no legal definition and they have no mandatory register unlike childminders and nursery staff



So it's good to know that they can at least participate in an Annual Award which aims to recognise the best nannies out there.

Professional Nanny of the Year Award

Every year the Professional Nanny of the Year Award recognises an individual nanny whose work promotes excellent care, professionalism and high standards. Up until now, VOICE has organised the Award, but this year they have passed the mantle onto The Chiltern College.

Our own Katy Hayden was crowned Professional Nanny of the Year

We are proud to say that many Tinies nannies over the years have been nominated and selected for the short list for this Award.

And in 2009 our very own Katy Hayden was crowned Professional Nanny of the Year, which was richly deserved. Katy represents that breed of nannies who genuinely love what they do, and contribute in such a large way to the lives of the children under their care.

We are very happy to participate in and promote this year's Nanny of the Year Award.

How does it work?

Well, entrants can self-nominate, or be nominated by their employers. To qualify to apply you will need:

  • To hold a current early years' childcare qualification at Level 3 or above, hold a current full enhanced CRB Disclosure Check and an up-to-date Paediatric First Aid Certificate
  • Have at least 2 years' relevant childcare experience and be working currently as a nanny
  • To submit a short (500 word maximum) summary of a typical working day.

Contact Tinies for an application form, if you are a nanny and wish to nominate yourself.

Or if you are an employer, like me, of an amazing nanny why not nominate her? You can do so by contacting Tinies and requesting an application form or contact The Chiltern College at [email protected].

Many parents commented on how excellent the crèche was. The children were kept very happy and the parents were freed up to enjoy themselves without worrying.
