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.

Georgia Sargeant

Co Owner and Founder 

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

As an experienced SEN nanny 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 to become more independent within society, promoting positive behaviours        through creative activities. Georgia was diagnosed with ADHD as an adult and feel it is her super power in terms of her successes and hopes to share how positive neurodiversity can be with the right support. 

The thanks she has received from parents has been overwhelming and now Georgia wants to help families get the support they need and deserve. She understands how the role has it's challenges, so offers hands on support for Sennies placed with us. 

 

Georgia is an aspiring songwriter who uses her love for the arts to help the families she works with.

Elinor Machen-Fortune

Head of Recruitment

Elinor graduated from Drama school and along side her acting career she is also an experienced SEN Nanny 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."
