Hire Nannies in Brisbane

Our nannies in Brisbane are perfect for permanent or short-term support to get you through a busy day or provide dedicated care over the school holidays. We also have families from overseas or out of town engage our services to help make their holiday run smoothly and give parents the opportunity to explore their destination further without little people in tow. Similarly, nannies can provide professional and reliable care for weddings and corporate events.

Our Brisbane-based nannies are normally temporary or permanent nannies, teachers, and daycare workers by day, and are offering their services to help families in the evenings.

Our temporary nannies and evening babysitters are available for a minimum of three hours a day for one-off or fixed-term bookings of up to three months.

Unlike many other nanny & babysitting services, we do the hard work for you and ALL of our nannies are interviewed and thoroughly vetted through an extensive process of qualification, background and reference checks before being considered for a position with our agency. Our Lovely Nannies have a formal childcare qualification and experience or at least two years paid experience working with children, as well as meeting these additional Australian Nanny Association requirements:

  • Working with Children Check (WWCC) or QLD Blue Card;
  • Current First Aid certification;
  • Excellent English; and
  • Impeccable references.

And importantly, our nannies LOVE working with little people. We hear time and time again from our clients that our nannies are absolutely adored by their children. This is what we’re all about!

Calling Families Searching for a Nanny in Brisbane

They used to say it takes a village to raise children but that was when large families lived near each other and everyone could pitch in. Now, families are often split up across the country or even the globe, and both parents often work. This can lead to you feeling overwhelmed and searching ‘find a nanny Brisbane’ in the middle of the night when you’ve finally got the baby to sleep. If this sounds like you, you’ve come to the right place because at Little Lovelies we’d be happy to help you find a nanny to complete your village. We got started in 2015 after our founder, a mum of two, saw how difficult it can be raising children while also working and trying to have a social life. She emigrated to Australia, so she also knows how hard it is when you don’t have family around to help. She poured all her passion into creating a nanny agency in Brisbane that puts children at the heart of the process and finds the best fit for each family, and now we’re spreading out across Australia.

Brisbane-based Nannies You Can Trust with Little Lovelies

Even knowing you need help, leaving your child with someone new can be stressful too. We understand that because we’ve done it. That’s why we thoroughly check all our nannies in Brisbane so you know you’re leaving them with someone safe who’s up to the challenge, To start with, we make sure that anyone who applies as a nanny has either at least two years of paid experience or a relevant qualification and experience. We’ll make sure they have positive references and a First Aid certificate in case of any health emergencies. We also meet everyone in person so we can get to know them and match the right member of the team to you.

Short Term or Living in? We do it all

We know that there are many different reasons for a family to be looking for a nanny, so with our nanny service in Brisbane, we’re flexible. Maybe you don’t have a lot of family nearby to help in those crazy newborn weeks, so you could benefit from having a live-in nanny for maximum support. Or maybe your children are a bit older, and you need someone with them while you’re at work. Our permanent nannies in Australia are available for periods of three months or more with hours to suit your lifestyle. We also have temporary babysitters in Brisbane who can help for a few weeks during the school holidays. When you contact us, we’ll get to know your family and what level of help you require and provide a shortlist of nannies with experience with the ages of your children. They’re obviously the most important part of this equation and we often get great feedback telling us that kids love our nannies in Brisbane which motivates us. Find the best childcare fit for your family today by filling in our enquiry form and our friendly team will be in touch. Read Less
