More extensive experience is essential in jobs with newborn babies, nannying at night and multiple births. To this extent we have built a large team of dedicated professional and experienced Nannies who specialise in night feeds, baby settling and helping new parents transition into parenthood gently.

We hire on attitude and want pro active professional Childcarers only. We do not "sit" babies and as a result really dislike the term "Babysitters" as we find it demeaning to our professional Nannies. We personally interview and induct all Nannies. Our recruitment team are trained in all aspects of the recruitment process that is particular to the in-home childcare sector.

We work closely with the Nanny a.k.a ChildCarer and Client to protect the rights of both Nannies and Clients, and to this end we provide in-home visits across Melbourne and Agency Client Contracts for both Client and Nanny. Placement Solutions can also advise on government requirements for sick pay, holiday pay, etc.

All our Nannies are subject to ongoing assessment and in-house training seminars as well as having access to higher childcare qualifications through our training arm Nurture College in concert with Empower Training.
