Our Nannies


Our nannies are experienced professional childcare workers; they generally have formal qualifications in the early childhood sector, along with years of hands on experience.

They are employed to provide education and care for your children, stimulate your children's physical, intellectual, emotional and social growth through play and activities in a nurturing, loving environment.


Daily tasks for a nanny can include feeding, bathing, dressing, outings, pick up, drop-offs, meal prep, all child related duties. 


Many nannies work in a "sole charge" position, which means that the parents/caregivers of the children are not at home. Primarily the nanny is employed to provide your child with their physical, emotional and developmental needs.


The benefits of employing a nanny are numerous; perhaps the most significant benefit is knowing that your child will feel secure in their own environment and that they are being given one to one specialist attention.
