What people say about us


“We have been extremely happy with the service Parental Choice provided. Always efficient and at a very reasonable price. We have recommended them to all our friends.” C.G. – London – February 2016

“I just wanted to share how great a help you and your team have been to find us a French Lycee school end of June (!!)  for our 2 children. These schools  are very oversubscribed and you gave us just the right information, registration date and shortcuts to take to increase the chances that we would not have found by ourselves.” L.M – Ealing – June 2015

“I have used a number of Parental Choices’s services including the nanny search, the employment contract advice and payroll services. I have found SJ and all the staff I have dealt with at Parental Choice to be friendly, professional, responsive and supportive. Having experienced several competing payroll providers before discovering Parental Choice, I have been very pleasantly surprised about the level of service provided; it makes life so much easier and you can get this service for less money than what the competitors charge. I would and have recommended Parental Choice to others without hesitation.”
T.F. – Middlesex – May 2015

“Thank you for the great and efficient payroll service you have given us over last 18 months which has made it a very easy process for us as employers and is very much appreciated.”
S.A. – Surrey – June 2014

“I could not be happier with the support and service provided by Parental Choice.
Over the months I have had numerous questions while trying to understand this very different world I have entered and on each occasion, your team members have been exemplary !
I am in the hospitality business and so am acutely aware of service.
Your business is The Ritz of parental support!” S.B – London – May 2014

“Parental Choice have been extremely helpful in sorting out the payroll for our nanny share. They picked up an issue missed by our previous provider that potentially could have landed us with a large fine. We have been extremely impressed with their service and would not hesitate to recommend them.”
M.C. – Rugby – January 2014

“My wife and I used Parental Choice for their employment contract advice as well as payroll for our nanny. We couldn’t be happier with both services: payroll is run smoothly and professionally and the team is always happy to answer queries when they arise. The drafting of the employment contract was equally professional and the output is on par with what you would receive from a solicitor. I was particularly impressed by Parental Choice’s responsiveness when we ran into a potential legal issue: Sarah-Jane gave clear and actionable advice which helped deal with what could have become a problematic issue. Overall I would certainly recommend Parental Choice!” J.U. – London – November 2013

“Sarah-Jane and team came to the rescue at the 11th hour with legal and payroll arrangements for our nanny. Friendly, professional and reassuring throughout. How lovely to speak to real people. Highly (and happily) recommend to other families.” D.R. – Guildford – July 2013

“Parental Choice provided clarity and seamless support when we recruited our nanny, providing us with payroll and employment contract. This and their advice proved invaluable when we recently had to part company with our nanny. Even though it was over the Easter public holidays, the team advised us and guided us through the necessary processes in a way which minimised the stress of a very difficult situation. We would recommend them not only because they were there at the start of the process but also throughout.” A.P. – Sussex – April 2013

“We use Parental Choice for our nanny payroll service. I have been extremely impressed by the level of efficiency and responsiveness of Sarah-Jane and her team. I first contacted Parental Choice over the Christmas period, and despite it being the ‘holiday season’ (and late in the evening), I received an immediate response. Since then they have maintained the same high level of service, replying to queries quickly and providing information in a simple and user-friendly format. I would highly recommend Parental Choice to other parents looking for help with their nanny admin.”
K.B. – London – February 2013

“Having found our perfect nanny, it was a great relief to find Parental Choice. They made the whole process simple and offered invaluable support despite needing to get all the contracts done and dusted over the Christmas period. As a Mum returning to work after a long absence it has been wonderful to have the peace of mind that using this service provides. It’s just one less thing to worry about!”
B.W. – London – January 2013

“Using Parental Choice for all elements of our search for a nanny, cv review, contract documentation, PAYE and general advice has been brilliant. It was great to hand over all the hard work to them knowing they were doing everything for me and having complete confidence in them. Sarah-Jane has done a great job for us and as a mother herself appreciates how little time we have to think about things we don’t know much about and has given us great information at every point. I have and would continue to recommend Parental Choice to any parent thinking about employing a nanny as it is so easy and great value for money. Five stars from us!” K.R. – Surbiton – December 2012

“We have been delighted with Sarah-Jane Butler and her colleagues at Parental Choice. We came into the UK knowing absolutely nothing about our legal and financial obligations to our nanny, and to the government. At each stage of the process, Sarah-Jane patiently explained the intricacies of the law, taking time to point out what was customary as well. Without Parental Choice, we would have been utterly lost; with them, we feel confident in our ability to navigate the many complexities involved in hiring a nanny and fulfilling our obligations to her, and to the government.” C.S-O – Kew – September 2012

“The friendliness, step-by-step assistance and speed of service that we received from Sarah-Jane and her team at Parental Choice was first class. Sarah-Jane guided us through the various points within the contract; how they would look after the payroll aspect and most importantly HMRC on our behalf. If you’re getting a nanny then Parental Choice is the best option to “dot the i’s and cross the t’s” for you.”
J.L. – London – August 2012

“I would have been completely lost in sorting out the complicated contract/pay/tax/NI aspects to employing my nanny recently, but Sarah-Jane at Parental Choice made it all effortless for me. She was always extremely efficient at answering any queries I had, and no question of mine was deemed too daft! Parental Choice is a true one-stop shop – providing everything a nanny employer needs, and promptly sorting out everything by phone or e-mail. The cost is very reasonable and it is just so reassuring to know Sarah-Jane is always there to answer any questions or deal with any problems that arise for as long as I am an employer of a nanny. She has also offered help and advice to my nanny should she require it. I would not hesitate to recommend Parental Choice to anyone.” C. R. – Pulborough, Sussex – May 2012

“We used Parental Choice to draw up our nanny contract and for all of our payroll requirements and could not be happier with the service. They are always happy to answer questions and provide information in a friendly way and are always prompt with any notifications about payments. If you need someone to help with your nanny administration then definitely use Parental Choice.” T.L. Surrey – April 2012

“We used Parental Choice as a one stop shop for all of our nanny requirements. They have provided the nanny contract and payroll services. Sarah-Jane and her team made the whole process very straight forward and helped educate and guide me. The service provided was very efficient and very quickly we had everything set-up and running. I would recommend their services to anyone looking to employ a nanny, they make the whole process simple.” A.A – Surrey – December 2011
