About us

 

Our founder, Charlotte Clay, is an experienced nanny who is proud to have been part of many families.

 

In 2012 she left behind her London lifestyle and job as a designer and headed to Morzine, France to work as a holiday nanny. Her friendly, energetic personality meant she was lucky enough to build a great career there, but she always dreamt of returning to her Yorkshire roots to start a nanny agency that made the most of her creative skills!

So Weekend Nannies was born (previously known as Charlotte Clay Childcare) specialising in wedding, event and emergency childcare throughout Yorkshire. Charlotte’s background in the arts helps her provide creative and stimulating childcare that encourages children to use their amazing imaginations to the fullest. She always tries to source nannies with a similarly special skill - so you know your children aren’t just being looked after exceptionally well, they’re learning and growing at the same time!

 

Charlotte also runs Vacation Nannies, which matches a holiday nanny with your family so you can have the magical family holiday you always dreamed of - and a rest too!
