Whether it is 7 nights or up to 6 months, we are the "go-to" temporary care specialists.
This is the right care if you are overwhelmed with:
- a new or sleepless, colicky baby
- multiple births
- waiting for a place in Child Care
- needing help over school holidays
- or just need some quality sleep and respite yourself.
We also provide care in situations where the mother herself is unwell or the family is in a crisis. Rest assured we can ensure your children and babies are cared for whilst you recover.
Help is just a call away. Temporary Nanny/Educators can be on a Full Time or Part Time basis.
Simply speak to our team and we will ensure that you receive the ideal Nanny/Educator for your family's needs.
Full Time Nannies
All our full time Nannies/Educators are fully screened and meet our high experience criteria, required to join our Nanny/Educator tribe.
Options include 38 to 50 hours, day or night, and live-in or live-out Nannies/Educators.
This means when you hire a full-time Nanny/Educator from us, you can be confident that much of the hard work required to choose the right carer for your children has already been done.
We will only shortlist potential Nannies/Educators that match your requirements, so no time wasting or getting your hopes up about a Nanny/Educator who can't provide what you need. Each role is bespoke, and we recruit and match specifically based on your family's needs.
Hiring a full-time Nanny/Educator can be a wonderful step in the development of your children and family as a whole, so ensure you use a Nanny agency that has proven to exceed the hopes of their clients.
Part Time Nannies
Along with our full-time Nanny/Educator service, Placement Solutions also offer professional part-time Nanny/Educators for our clients.
Perhaps you need some help, but only a couple of days per week? No problem.
Our part-time Nannies/Educators will perform similar duties as a full-time Nanny/Educator, just not on a full-time basis. This service suits clients who have busy schedules, but have free days where they like to be the primary caregiver for their children.
A part-time Nanny/Educator includes any job that is ongoing for more than six months. So, you can have some ad hoc hours and pay for what you use.
Another option we can offer is short term care for up to 1 month.
Private or Government Subsidised?
We offer both private and Government Subsidised care (to eligible families).
With our 30+ years of experience assisting Melbourne families, we can help you navigate this area to ensure that you both understand your benefits and are compliant with Government requirements.
An Application Fee of $150 + GST is payable to process your application*. This is a once only but non-refundable payment.
Following your successful application, we will work with you to select and refine your criteria to ensure you obtain the help you need and want.
It's that simple!
*This fee may not apply to families receiving crisis funding through FAO (Family Assistance Office) in the first 13 weeks, or for single parents.
