“I first joined Smiley’s back in 1999 when I was placed in my first nanny position which was to set me up for life in the nanny world. Since then, I have been placed in 3 long-term positions by smileys and I have not looked back. In my eyes, smileys are by far the best and most efficient nanny agency I have come across. ”
“I have been a babysitter for 4 years and have always found Smileys Childcare an excellent agency to work for. The staff are always friendly and helpful and whenever I am given a babysitting booking the client details, address and times have always been accurate. I would not hesitate to recommend Smileys to any babysitter or client alike.”
“I have used Smileys for 5 years. They have found me nannying & maternity nursing work (part time & full time) also temp work whilst waiting for my new job to start. I find the agency to be friendly, professional, & successful in finding the right position to suit all involved.”
“Since joining Smileys I have found them to be helpful in helping me find the right nanny job. I have recently joined the babysitting circle and again Smileys have placed me with a variety of different babysitting jobs. I have also recommended Smileys to other nannies as an excellent agency.”
“I have been with Smileys for 2yrs. Initially it was only for babysitting, then when I needed to find a new job Juliet was extremely helpful and patient in helping me find the job for me. Keep up the good work.”
“I've been with Smileys for around 4 years now, both as a nanny & babysitter. They are, by far, the best agency that I have used. They are always there to offer advice & support and never try to push you into a job that you are not suited to, which a lot of other agencies seem to do. I've had two really good full time jobs through Smileys, as well as regular babysitting. They always seem to have top jobs. I would not use any other agency!”
“I have been with Smileys Childcare Agency for just over 3 years. Smileys found me the nannying job that I am still currently in (I have been with the family for 3 years). I also have regular babysitting jobs through the agency. I have had no problems during this time. I have built up a nice rapport with the families I babysit for, as well as the family I nanny for.”
“I have found Smileys Childcare Services to be most helpful and friendly. They have always found many interviews for me quickly with potentially suitable families or nurseries, and have given me very helpful advice and positive feed back. Smileys has always taken into account distances and areas within which it would be possible for me to work. Staff are very approachable and will always do their best to iron out any problems. I would highly recommend Smileys. Jan 2009”
“I have been with Smileys Childcare Agency since 1999 as a Nanny and Babysitter. The first full time job the Agency found me was with a family in Bray/Maidenhead who I worked for 7yrs. I am still very much in touch with that family now, as they have become a second family to me. During my time with Smileys I can honestly say that I feel that Juliet and her staff do have the best interest in placing the right person with the right family. I highly recommend Smileys as an Agency for any Nanny/ Nursery Nurse looking for work!”
“We have used Smileys Childcare Agency in the past to help us with recruiting new team members and also a maternity cover maternity nurse for our nursery. We have always found them to be helpful. An agency that does what it says, if they say they will phone you back, they do. We have been pleased with the staff members that they have found for us and feel that the description they give of their candidates is accurate.”
“Finding good childcare has been imperative for us in our move to the UK almost 3 years ago. Smileys has organised a number of very reliable and capable baby-sitters for us. We have used them often and also like their flexibility to do longer sits when necessary. It certainly has helped us get out for a little "Mum & Dad" time!”
“I have been using Smileys Childcare Agency for four years now, since the birth of my first son James. They provide an excellent service. There is always someone on the other end of the telephone when you call, and they listen very careful to the job description you give them, unlike other agencies that have answering machines to pick up the call, and send unsuitable candidates that waste the time and energy of both parties. I have had excellent nannies from Smileys and I would recommend them as top agency.”
“I have been a customer of Smileys for a number of years and was delighted to hear about the introduction of identity cards for babysitters. The fact that all babysitters are police checked gives great peace of mind and the I.D. cards will increase that for the occasions when my regular sitters aren't available.”
“Smileys Childcare Agency has only ever provided us with girls of the highest calibre. Some return to us on a temporary basis again and again, so providing some continuity. Smileys are the only agency that we use because of the excellent service provided.”
“Smileys offers a first class reliable service which allows us peace of mind that our daughter is being cared for by our regular sitter who has now become a friend to the family and a firm favourite with out 3 year old. It is very reassuring when our daughter actually asks when Helen (our regular babysitter) is coming again.”
“Once again I would like to thank you for your excellent and professional service. I particularly appreciate your accurate appraisals and informed advice in the process of finding the right nanny.”
“A friendly, efficient service for both babysitting and for nanny recruitment. Juliet is always honest about what I can expect to get from my nanny and how much I will need to pay and she gives me swift feedback on available candidates and post-interview interest. The babysitting service is efficient and hassle-free and the quality of staff is excellent.”
“"When looking for a highly qualified nanny for our twin boys, it was a relief to be recommended to Smileys who were first class in every aspect, Thank-you!”
“Having used Smileys Childcare Agency over the last 7 years for my childcare, I have found them to be by far the most helpful and professional agency in Bucks.”
“"Thank-you so much for providing 4 fantastic nannies for my daughters wedding on 5th June 2009. The nannies were great and the parents were pleased and grateful! Please thank them on behalf of myself and my daughter Michelle and her husband Neal. The day went smoothly and we all enjoyed it. If I hear of anyone who needs nannies I will be pleased to recommend you."”
“"Well I never knew after school nannies existed until my friend told me about Smileys. My sons were getting fed up with after school clubs and we have found a wonderful nanny from Smileys, who also works in the school holidays. The quality of their nannies we interviewed were excellent & their caring and prompt service with interviews was superb. Recommend them highly!!"”
“"I am a single mother with a baby & looking for childcare was a very daunting experience. After calling several agencies I decided to go with Smileys as they spent the time listening to my requirements and current situation. I am so pleased now, I have a wonderful nanny who I trust & who my son adores. If you want an agency that cares and listens to you I recommend Smileys."”
“I have been using Smileys for several years for my childcare. I have also had a fantastic Maternity nurse from them too for my twins, and a holiday nanny last year. The service they provide and the quality of staff they have is superb and when you call them they always have time to listen to your requirements and never rush you to get off the phone. The best agency as far as I and my friends are concerned!!"”
“"I’d recommend Smileys without hesitation. They listened attentively to what I wanted from a Nanny, gave me invaluable advice that helped me clarify my thinking, and sought out excellent candidates for interview. As a parent you could not ask for more."”
