Based in London, SENNIES is a specialist recruiter 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.

Head of Recruitment
Elinor graduated from Drama school and along side her acting career she is also an experienced Sennie and SEN Advocate.
Elinor was diagnosed with Autism 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."
