In 2016, Ellen worked for an existing family at a wedding, providing childcare for their two children. During that time, she was approached by guests asking for details on such a great business idea! After that, Ellen threw everything and more at the idea and The Yorkshire Wedding Nanny was officially born!
The Yorkshire Wedding Nanny has a fabulous team of Early Years Practitioners, carefully selected based on existing childcare qualifications and experiences. These amazing Nannies work in larger group requirements and can cater for multiple weddings on the same date!
Each member of The Yorkshire Wedding Nanny holds an enhanced DBS check, a 3-year paediatric first aid certificate and a minimum Level 3 childcare qualification meaning we provide you with the very BEST Wedding Nannies for your very special day!
"I'm Ellen, the original "Yorkshire Wedding Nanny". I created this venture and have been bowled over by the success of it in such little time. I'm a mummy to three very active children who keep me entertained and often quite busy! During a normal working week, I run my own childcare business in Burley in Wharfedale which Ofsted graded as outstanding ".
Ellen recently graduated from university with a BA in Young Children's Learning and Development and holds a HE in Early Years, Childcare and Play. She has a vast amount of experience with children, not only being a parent herself but has cared for babies from birth, worked with twins and provided 1:1 care for children with learning difficulties. Ellen is enhanced DBS checked and holds a full UK driving license with business insurance. She is fully paediatric First Aid Trained (3 year qualification) and holds a Level 8 qualification in Early Years.
Say hello to Donna. She has worked in childcare for over 1o years in her own childminding setting and has experience working as a teaching assistant within a primary school. Donna has cared for children from birth to teen and is a parent to four children of her own! Donna has worked for The Yorkshire Wedding Nanny for over a year and loves how no two weddings are the same.
"I love being a wedding nanny. It's such a lovely atmosphere in which to care for children. Everyone is always in such good spirits. Meeting new people is such fun and I love the feedback we receive from the childcare service we carry out. What's not to love about this job?!"
Hello Sarah! A married mummy of two and has worked in childcare for over 10 years!! Sarah too has worked as a childminder but recently commenced working in a school to broaden her experience. Sarah joined The Yorkshire Wedding Nanny 6-months ago and has attended a number of weddings since. She loves looking after children in such a lovely environment.
"When Ellen approached me and asked whether I'd be interested in working for her as a wedding nanny, I barely had to give it a second thought. Caring for children is something I really enjoy, and who doesn't love a good wedding?! Mixing the two together is like having the best job ever although technically, it doesn't actually feel like work as we always have sooo much fun!"
