About Us

SENNIES is a specialist recruiter helping families in London and the surrounding areas 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.

Elinor

Consultant  

Elinor graduated from Drama school and along side her acting career she is also an experienced Super Sennie and SEN Advocate.

 

Elinor was diagnosed Autistic when she was 10 years old, and most recently with ADHD as an adult.

"I understand how scary it can be to hear that a child or loved one is living with something that is likely to make their everyday life more ‘difficult’ and require certain adjustments. However I also see how wonderful and exceptional people who see the world differently can be, and how if given the right support and understanding, can really thrive and flourish."

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 child carers.

 

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

She understands how the role has it's challenges, so offers hands on support for Sennies placed with us. 

 

Georgia is also an aspiring singer and  songwriter.
