East Green Child Care Services; our story

East Green Child Care Services has been around for 22 years!  It is one of the longest running child care agencies in Kent that has remained under the same ownership & management.  Over those 22 years I’ve enjoyed lots of nannying roles myself and had my two children, so life has never been dull!  Throughout it all I’ve continued to offer the same service that I committed to in 1997 – I’m passionate about creating placements that really work and I also aim to deliver quality customer service to all my clients.

Maybe you started off quite patiently, being very encouraging and trying a variety of tactics to make mealtimes fun.
