about snap

snap child care is a specialist agency, placing high calibre child care professionals including specialist nannies, carers, therapists and educators to work with babies and children with disabilities & additional needs. 

We match candidates not just based on their experience, but also on their 'fit' with your family, which is why we meet all families seeking permanent help throughout the UK. We work directly with families and via case managers.

We have been working with families since 2001 and are committed to finding you the very best nannies, buddies, carers, therapists for your child - our standards are set very high! With our skill, understanding and experience, we will endeavour not only to find you a great candidate, but to provide a comprehensive, personalised service where you feel fully understood and supported.

snap's history:

snap was started in 2001 by Sally Britton and partner Andrew Knight, whose daughter Camilla has cerebral palsy and requires support in all aspects of her life.  Camilla was our initial inspiration and the very foundation on which SNAP was built. The SNAP team always enjoy her visits to the office and Camilla continues to be our motivation and benchmark for the high quality service we are proud to offer. 

Camilla's dad Andrew, like all parents, wanted to give his little girl the very best and he realised early on that he couldn't provide all the care Camilla needed. He didn't, however, want Camilla to be just 'looked after'; he wanted high calibre, childcare professionals who could support Camilla to maximise her opportunities.  

snap's roles:

Initially we placed just special needs / SEN nannies, but now recruit for a range of job roles including: buddies, nurses, enablers, family support workers, team leaders, nursery and school supports / shadows, therapists, waking and on-call night carers, rehabilitation support workers and educators. We now have 3 divisions to meet the needs of all ages: snap: child care, teen care & adult care
