A Supportive UK Nanny Community

Welcome To Nalo

The name Nalo comes from an abbreviation of ‘The Nanny Lounge’, our popular Facebook group for nannies. It is pronounced in the same way you’d say ‘halo’, but with an ‘N’ of course. 

We provide a supportive community for nannies in the UK and help nannies to receive the information, advice and guidance they need to be the best they can. 

We know how isolating nannying can be at times so we host frequent meet ups and online events, as well as growing our online community.

We also run communities for nanny agencies, employers, and places for nannies and jobs to be advertised.

Nannying can be isolating - I've been in a house with only small children for company for nearly 30 years now... Having instant access to people who understand, and who have wisdom and warmth and wit to share, is absolutely priceless.
