Regular meet-ups

We organise regular meetings in London for all our au pairs and nannies throughout the year. If you choose a different destination we will connect you with your local nanny community. In the past we have explored London together, organised walking tours, visited many museums and galleries, had picnics in some of London’s historic parks, played rounders, kubb, gone ice skating, and even organised pub crawls! This year the group ran their own book club and sports club with regular meet ups.
