Founded by a surgeon and a nanny, for busy families everywhere
Dr Rachael Coates was a mum in need of some support. Sarah Heward was a nanny who had been put in vulnerable positions as a young self-employed worker.
They found some magic when they worked together, and set about creating the most flexible, supportive, affordable childcare, for families whose lives and needs don't necessarily fit neatly into 9am-5pm.
Our aim is to provide childcare that is suitable for modern day living, which allows parents to get back to enjoying their family, whilst also providing career guidance, opportunities, training and a community for nannies. And so, UNA was born!
- 24/7 flexible childcare
- Emergency cover, for when plans change
- Safe and experienced DBS checked nannies
- Support for homeschooling
- Virtual online nanny sessions
- Cover for holidays, and weekends away - our nannies can stay overnight at your home, or come away with you!
