Hire Gold Coast Nannies

Hiring a nanny in the Gold Coast is 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 Gold Coast-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 Gold Coast 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!

When you Need Gold Coast Nannies, Little Lovelies are Here for You
