About Us

Carole, with sons Tim & Matthew

The Nanny & Au Pair Connection was started in 1989 by the present owner Carole Payne, herself an au pair in Paris where she studied French at the Sorbonne. Carole later worked as a PA in Paris for a further 6 years and speaks fluent French.

Carole and family lived for 6 years in Saudi Arabia where she employed nannies and, on returning to the UK employed au pairs for her two boys.

On returning to the UK Carole decided to start her own au pair agency as she had worked previously as a Recruitment Consultant.

Carole employs two assistants and the agency is the success that it is due to the personal and professional approach. All au pairs come from our agents abroad, we do not take applicants from the internet. Applicants and references are checked by our agents. They  also make sure that they come with the necessary documents, police checks and medical certificates.

Most of the agencies work comes via word of mouth and families come back to us year after year.

All nannies are personally interviewed by us and references are checked.
