Farnham resident, Emma Kay, 32, has become the Surrey owner of internationally renowned childcare agency, Harmony at Home.

Emma began her career as a nursery nurse before heading to ski resort Belle Plange, France, and quickly ascending to the role of Head of Childcare at Godalming-based family ski holiday specialist, Esprit.

Rising to yet another challenge in 2016, Emma has now purchased the Surrey Franchise for Harmony at Home, a childcare agency set up by former Norland nanny, Frankie Gray, in 2004, and has committed to offering world-class childcare to the Surrey community as part of the Harmony at Home umbrella.

Specialising in a wide spectrum of services including household staff, nannying, nursery staff and au pair recruitment through to childcare consultancy, babysitting and first aid training, Emma will now be responsible for ensuring that Harmony at Home’s rigorous childcare standards are met throughout the county.

On her latest venture Emma comments: “I’m absolutely delighted to be heading up the Surrey arm of Harmony at Home and to be able to bring my wealth of experience to the role of ensuring that Surrey parents are effectively partnered with first-class nannies. I now look forward to working with parents and childcare experts across Surrey in 2016 and beyond and establishing Harmony at Home as the heart of childcare in Surrey.”

Esprit Holidays’ CEO and Emma’s former boss, Andy Perrin, says: “As the UK’s leading family skiing company, Esprit has over 230 qualified nannies and child carers across the Alps every winter, and Emma led this entire team for us brilliantly throughout the last eight years. Knowing her unwavering commitment, dedication and passion for great child care, we have no doubt that Surrey families will take Emma to their hearts, and all our team here wish her every success in this exciting new venture.”

On welcoming Emma to the business, Frankie, from West Sussex, adds: “Emma is a determined and driven person with an impressive and experienced approach to childcare. Surrey is a large county with a growing childcare market and I’m confident that under Emma’s leadership, Harmony at Home will not only play a key role in delivering outstanding childcare throughout the county but also set a new benchmark when it comes to what constitutes quality childcare in the region.”
