Some families are able to claim back the money spent on employing a nanny.
When employing an Ofsted Registered Nanny, there could be several types of financial support available to you.
Tax Free Childcare
If you're a working parent with children under 12 (or under 17 for disabled children), you can open an online account to pay for registered childcare. The government will top-up the money you pay into the account.
For every £8 you pay in, the government will add an extra £2. You can receive up to £2,000 per child. If you have a disabled child, you can receive up to £4,000 per child.
You may be entitled to universal credit childcare support if you are on a low income.
Universal credit is offered to employed and self employed parents. You can claim up to 85% of your eligible childcare costs for children under 17.
You may be eligible to claim up to £646 a month for one child, or £1,108 a month for two or more children.
You may be eligible for help with your childcare costs if you are a full-time, higher education student and have children under 15, or under 17 if they have special educational needs.
You could receive a grant that does not have to be paid back and is paid on top of your other student finance. The grant covers up to 85% of your childcare costs offering a maximum of £183.75 a week for a single child or £315.03 a week if you have more than one child.

The majority of our nannies are able to register with the scheme and it costs a nanny £103 a year to do this.
Some nannies are already registered, but many nannies will wait to see if a family requires Ofsted registration. In this scenario we encourage the family to fund, or part fund, the cost of a nanny registering.
All Sunrise Nannies are:
- Childcare professionals
- Interviewed and vetted by our owner, Carly
- DBS checked
- Continually referenced checked

Our nannies are highly adaptable and offer a range of hours to suit your family’s needs.
They can live-in, or come to you on a daily basis.
The salary for an Ofsted Registered Nanny typically starts from £12 per hour.
The agreed rate for your nanny will vary based on:
- Qualifications and experience of the nanny
- The hours they are required to work

As soon as you’re registered, we can use our network of vetted nannies to fill your childcare vacancy.
You will only pay agency fees once we have successfully placed a nanny for you.
