I always appreciate the time taken to speak to families that I refer to them. It is an overwhelming time for new parents, and the subsidy system and government rigmarole is complicated. They take good care of the families that they service and send wonderful and compassionate nannies and carers to families that need care during the hardest of times.

Our Services

Temporary Nanny Educators

Whether it is 7 nights or up to 6 months, we are the "go-to" temporary care specialists.

You may just be after a little extra help, or specifically after a Newborn Care Specialist, (a.k.a a Night Nanny) to help you settle in with your new bub. Speak to our team and we will ensure that you receive the correct care for your family's needs. 

We also provide care in situations where the mother herself is unwell or the family is in a crisis.

Permanent Nanny Educators

We can provide different solutions for people searching for ongoing childcare as a longer term solution for their family (usually more than 6 months).

This can be on either a full time or part time basis. You simply choose the hours you need. Please note that we have a 6 hour mininum shift and most professional Nannies want and need to work an 8 to a 10 hour day. We therefore do not take before and afterschool care bookings.

A room of one's own and separate bathroom just for the Nanny are the mininum accomodation necessary. Live in Nannies are in very short supply post the pandemic lockdown.
