I had resigned myself to never being able to find anyone to quite replace my previous nanny of 6 years. However within a week of having posted my ad on the site I had over 10 serious applications... I had at least three outstanding candidates to choose from and am very happy with the outcome!Karen (Kew, VIC) Read More
Jeanette was a terrific playmate and carer for our two pre-school boys. She was especially flexible fitting in with our shift-work roster and was 100% reliable.Dani (Kangaroo Ground, VIC) Read More
