Looking for a nanny agency in Switzerland?

Kinder Nannies places experienced professional nannies and governesses with families throughout Switzerland. Most popular are our native English speaking nannies and governesses, but we also have many enquiries from families looking for bilingual German, French, Italian, Spanish and Russian speaking nannies.

Our nannies in Switzerland have either:

  1. EU Passport
  2. Swiss passport
  3. Swiss work permit

We cannot work with any nanny one who does not already have one of these 3 above.

Our English mother tongue nannies generally hail from Ireland and Northern Ireland (with EU passport), or they are British and have Dual nationality (UK/EU).
