What is a Nanny?


A Nanny is someone who has a passion for caring for children and may have a qualification in childcare and / or experience in caring for children. Nannies can care for children of any age and can either live in your home or live out. Nannies will have all relevant checks including Working with Children Check, Police Check, First Aid and current references.

A Nanny provides care within the family home, either on a part-time or full-time basis, and is responsible for the children’s daily needs such as preparing their meals, engaging in educational activities and organising outings.

Nannies can come with specific skill based experience to care for children with additional needs.

Nannies bring a wealth of knowledge and strategies when it comes to your children’s needs. Children will have a strong attachment to their nanny and feel safe and secure with another person other than their parents.

Benefits of a Nanny:

  • A Nanny provides sole care for your children and routines can be tailored around your specific family needs.

  • Nannies have the ability to structure the day around the children’s physical and emotional needs and make their day as productive and positive as possible.

  • Nannies will provide a variety of safe and creative activities during the day such as visits to playgroups, parks, outings, educational visits and activities.

  • Nannies can be flexible with their hours and accommodating if an emergency arises.

  • Communication is more personal as you’re only dealing with the one carer.
