Our Story

“La Tata” which means ‘The Nanny’ in Italian, was created in 2020 by Candice Howe. A passionate childcare specialist with over 15 years of experience including certificates in Play Therapy, Child Psychology and Sleep Practice.

From a young age, Candice has been around children of all ages, backgrounds, and upbringings, she herself grew up as the oldest of 4 children in a home that fostered children. Her parents Wilfred and Barbara are a driving influence on the woman she is today, as they nurtured a child who understands the importance of development and stability in a family home environment and the importance of a village to support parents that might be struggling.

Children are affected by the people that come into their lives and how it affects their growth and Candice saw firsthand how children can end up having several carers over a short space of time and the negative effects this can have on the children mentally. What she learned was the importance of carers needing to be aligned with the household’s beliefs, rules, and standards whilst bringing their experience and knowledge to the home.

Candice has dedicated her life to provide the best and most consistent child-caring services for families.
