Pumpkins Nanny Agency was established in 2010 by Jane Shabani and Claire O’Connell. We have been successfully sourcing and placing nannies ever since.

With extensive nanny experience ourselves we fully understand the responsibility that falls upon nannies. At Pumpkins we have a supportive and sympathetic approach and are dedicated to providing an easy and stress-free process. As parents ourselves we understand the importance of finding the right care for your little ones.

We offer a personal approach and listen intently to both the needs of nannies and families to enable us to ensure we are finding the right candidates for families, and vice versa. We will gladly use our combined years of knowledge within the industry to find solutions to your individual needs.

All Pumpkins candidates will be first aid qualified, have an up to date DBS, personally interviewed and fully vetted. Nannies will have a minimum of 3 years paid childcare experience as well as the majority also being qualified.

Feedback from our Clients & Nannies

I can not recommend Pumpkins Childcare Agency enough, I’m constantly referring families looking for a nanny and any Maternity nurses/night nannies like myself looking for work. They look after the ladies registered with them as well as clients, which is not always the case with agencies. I’ve been with them many years and find Claire & Jane to be nothing but professional, caring & polite at all times but most importantly get back to you almost immediately with any updates on jobs & interviews any time of day. Highly recommend, which is why I’m happy to still be with them after so many years. 😊

We approached Pumpkins due to their reputation, and they certainly lived up to it. Both Jane and Claire are clearly very experienced and I found them very professional, whilst being honest, friendly and responsive. They prepared us well for the interviewing and it was invaluable to discuss it with them afterwards, to help us choose the right nanny to suit our requirements. The aftercare has also been excellent and it’s so reassuring to know they are there for any additional support.

Having been signed to a number of agencies, Pumpkins is in a league of its own! Claire and Jane are so on the ball and really take your needs into account and will find you the perfect nanny family. Any concerns and they are right on the end of the phone with their friendly yet highly professional advice. I will be recommending them to all futures nannies I come across!

I have worked with multiple agencies throughout my 20 years of working within childcare and Pumpkins Agency really stood out. They care about clients and candidates and are very knowledgeable about what both parties need. I would recommend Jane & Claire to any family looking for a nanny, or a nanny looking for a new role.

My experience with this agency has been incredible. Extremely professional and knowledgeable. Great advice and really care about your needs. They take the time to listen and work with you. I will be recommending!

Kelly H.

Great Agency! Claire & Jane are both very friendly and efficient and I felt that because they had been Nannies themselves and are now Mums they had the best balance and knowledge.
