About Us

SENNIES is a specialist childcare introduction service helping families find the perfect Sennie (Special Educational Needs Nanny/Teacher/Carer) suited to their specific needs and requirements.

We know how difficult and time consuming it can be to find the right Sennie for your family and specifically for your child with Special Educational Needs.

 

We believe that every child has the right to grow in a fun, safe and inclusive environment.

 

At SENNIES we understand how important it is to find the right personality and experience to join your family. Each and every one of our Sennies demonstrates a flexible, understanding, creative approach and are continually supported by us.

Meet the team

Georgia 
CEO & Co-Founder

Georgia has a degree in Performing Arts and 10 years of SEN childcare experience within both the school and home environment.

As an experienced Super Sennie herself, Georgia discovered that the current SEN Childcare market was, in her view, overpriced, under-trained and largely unfair on both nannies and families alike - SENNIES aim to change this.​

 

It comes as no shock that she is deeply passionate about helping young people of all abilities, become more independent within society, promoting positive behaviours through creative activities, provided by quality, consistent and resilient childcarers.

 

Georgia is a neurodiverse woman with ADHD and feels it is her superpower in terms of her successes! She hopes to share how positive neurodiversity can be with the right support. 

She understands how the role has its challenges, so offers hands-on support for Sennies placed with us. 

 

Georgia is also an aspiring singer and songwriter however as you can imagine, this has taken a back seat since SENNIES began!

Tallulah
Recruitment assistant

Tallulah joined SENNIES filled with passion to support the growing SEN community and since joining she has shown no signs of slowing down!

Tallulah's passion comes from being diagnosed with learning difficulties as a child at a young age. She is currently exploring other areas of neurodiversity after discovering many girls were missed or wrongly diagnosed, due to the different presentations of neurodiversity in males and females.

 

Tallulah shares that when she was growing up, she "faced ableism due to challenges when it came to socialising with others.  This led me to be constantly underestimated in terms of my abilities. I always knew I was more capable than people would allow me to feel and with the right support I have been able to achieve incredible anything I put my mind to!"

 

Being diagnosed at a young age, she knows from personal experience the benefits of having a super Sennie by your side to support you in achieving your maximum potential!

When she heard about the new SENNIES office opening in her local area she knew it was a sign and applied straight away! 

 

Tallulah joins us on a part-time basis, as she is currently studying to become an opera singer, which has been a dream of hers for as long as she can remember! 

Since joining SENNIES through the Kickstart scheme Tallulah has become the Queen of Compliance and wears her crown with pride!

Jay
Recruitment  Assistant

Jay is a technically minded individual who loves all things IT (Including computer games!)

If there is ever a technical issue in the office then Jay is the man for the job! Since moving to a new online matching System, Jay has been integral in the daily technical challenges all businesses face.

 

Jay joined SENNIES in 2022 as he is passionate about supporting young people with additional needs and wanted to ensure he could support families like his own.

 

As a visually impaired individual, he struggled to find professional, paid work experience, due to the lack of understanding in regards to visual impairment and inflexible thinking when it came to making very simple accommodations/adjustments to support his learning and working style.

 

Prior to working with SENNIES, whilst looking for a role, Jay grew in experience by volunteering at Blind Veterans UK from 2019 to 2020 but unfortunately due to the global pandemic, this was cut short. 

 

Since joining SENNIES through the Kickstart scheme Jay has thrived in every aspect of his role and he is an asset to our incredible team!
