Lauren Holgate

INA 2023 Business Round Table Host - Lauren Holgate

After 15+ years of experience working as a nanny, Lauren’s dedication to the profession is unwavering. Her deep insights into the nanny industry fueled the creation of her own agency in 2019 where her mission is – quite simply – to raise standards in the nanny profession. This means providing families with the most professional nanny services possible, while providing talented nannies with ongoing support and development opportunities. Children deserve the very best we can give. So why shouldn’t personal, resourceful and caring always be the standard?

Lauren has a diploma in Early Years Development and qualifications in Holistic Sleep Training for babies and toddlers. She is active in the global nanny network and in 2021 she was on the selection panel for the INA Nanny of the Year.
