We take a personalised approach to your childcare needs
Our permanent nannies work with families on a fixed term of three months or longer. The hours are flexible depending on your family’s needs – one day a week, after school hours only, 8am – 6pm Monday to Friday, or seven days a week – the choice is yours.
When you get in touch with us, we’ll take the time to get to know you and your family, identify your childcare needs and understand what is important to you. This helps us find the perfect match for your family.
How It Works
1. Personalised consultation
Our recruitment process begins with a personalised consultation and a comprehensive questionnaire to understand your specific needs and what is important to you as a family. A detailed job brief is provided for your review and approval before we advertise the position for applications.
2. Extensive recruitment
We thoughtfully recruit nannies that match what you’re looking for and meticulously screen and verify qualifications, experience, references and background checks. We interview all suitable applicants face-to-face to determine the best fit for your family and situation.
3. High quality shortlist
Our personalised and professional approach delivers a high quality shortlist, meaning you are meeting with only the best matched nannies for your family.
4. Nanny placement & ongoing support
Once you have chosen your preferred nanny, we encourage you to trial the nanny. We will then support you through making an offer, providing an employment contract and managing payroll.
In most cases, families are comfortable with their chosen nanny, but for peace of mind we offer a further two weeks replacement policy should it be required.
