Cocoon Agency Fees

We are an introductory agency and charge a fee for our Service. We pride ourselves on providing a personable service and are unable to send out any applicants unless you have registered with our Agency and agree to our fees. This enables us to match you with the right nanny or service; as every individual request is different.

Registration/Membership Fee

There is a one off Registration/Membership fee for all of Cocoon’s services which lasts a lifetime should you wish to use our services again. This fee is only charged once and is non refundable once the booking is confirmed.

Lifetime Registration/Membership Fee£150

The membership fee and daily/weekly fees cover the following:

  • Evaluating your needs.
  • Identifying and assessing suitable candidates for you.
  • Checking the identity and information provided by candidates, including visual checks of: references, passports to confirm identity and right to live and work in the UK, stated qualifications and training certificates where available, enhanced DBS checks and First aid certificates. 
  • Introducing candidates who we assess to be suitably qualified and experienced and who meet your preferences and needs.
  • Maintaining an on-going relationship with you to ensure that you remain satisfied with the candidate’s services.
  • Introducing additional candidates if additional or replacement candidates are required. 

We will make an additional charge for either a night nanny or maternity nurse. These charges are payable at the time of booking and must be paid by Credit Card or Bank Transfer.  If you decide you wish to reduce or cancel the booking one month’s notice is required for the cancellation of a Maternity nurse and at least two weeks for a Nanny.  A refund will then be made to your credit card or bank.
