Having a nanny, live or visiting, is a flexible childcare option that allows children to be cared for in loving and familiar home surroundings.
Nannies care your child like you would, showering them with undivided attention and love. Being in the comfort of their home – their domain – your child will be more inclined to explore, discover, take risks and grow into a confident young individual, all under the watchful eye of a trusted nanny.
Typically nannies have some form of qualification or relevant experience, which equips them to provide a safe, positive and stimulating learning environment in which children can develop.
Our nannies are well supported by us and our growing nanny community. They are an extremely flexible childcare option; available part-time or full-time at the hours convenient to you. Nannies can either live in your home with your family or come in daily. Another huge bonus is that most nannies also help you around home, doing the laundry, dishes, etc.
Having a nanny is not just advantageous, but also a practical solution to childcare. It’s also not as expensive as you think it is.
Nanny selection process
A nanny will care for your children, teach and nurture them. That’s a big responsibility and we understand this.
Our nannies are carefully selected. Each one is reference checked, police checked and interviewed by experienced childcare professionals. We ensure that they hold a current first aid certificate. We provide constant support to our nannies for their growth and development and ensuring that the children in their care are blossoming.
Each family has its unique requirements. We will help you find the perfect nanny for your family’s individual needs. Besides, we make the whole process stress-free by also supporting you with job descriptions, contracts, wage payment, interview preparation, etc.

The cost of a nanny
Most people have a perception that nannies are expensive. But, if you have two or more children, nannies may actually be a cheaper alternative to most other childcare options. Besides, you can be assured that your child is in the care of a trusted and qualified person.
The cost of a permanent nanny can vary from upwards of $18 per hour, depending on experience. You can also claim towards a part of the cost towards hiring a nanny. Contact us to know more about which government allowances your family may be entitled to.
