IMG_8127Valentine Yazigi

Valentine is a young French mum, founder and director of “French Nanny”, start-up based in London. Over the years she came to master her passion for the early years of child development working as a paediatric nurse at the well-known Hôpital Foch in Paris. After working in France for five years, in 2010 Valentine expatriated to the UK.

In London, Valentine first worked as a nanny with a British family. This experience gave her an insider’s view on the world (and needs) of nannies and parents.  During that time she noticed the strong interest local families had in French language and culture. This gave Valentine the inspiration to create the very first French Nanny agency in London. And so, in May 2012, French Nanny London was born!

As the head of French Nanny London, Valentine continues to apply her experienced-based and dedicated work to the success of the Agency and to the satisfaction of her clients.
