Peek A Boo

Blackwell House, 1 Guildhall Yard, London EC2V 5AE, UK – 020 3167 0925

I first registered with the agency in 2007 and was immediately placed with 2 families. The staff is always happy to help, professional and very friendly. I received great advices and tips for interviews and they matched me perfectly with the families. They always kept in touch to see if I'm happy in my jobs and if they can help with any issues. They have a fantastic range of courses for nannies, au pairs and childminders if they need to train or retrain in their career. Overall experience with the agency and the staff was excellent and I will continue to use their services and would highly recommend to anyone.

I am very happy with agency Peecaboo. The staff is very nice! Currently I work as an au pair in such a nice family which they found for me. Recently I've done maternity and paediatric course. Everything was perfect. Teachers are very qualified and I had a lot of fun. Totally recommend this agency!

Had not been here in over a year but very pleasantly surprised to see the recent improvements, new animals and fantastic cafe and gift shop. My son loved learning the difference between lammas and alpacas. We were in a bit of a rush so we just popped in for a quick look but we will definitely be back soon.

Free entry, a wide selection of animals and staff on hand to assist. Excellent resource or day out with the kids. Keep an eye open for the fans cats, somewhat free range.
