Dear prospective nanny, we are in need of a reliable, caring and compassionate nanny to assist with the care of our loving children.

If you think you may be suitable or wish to hear more about the role, please do not hesitate to contact me.

My husband and I am looking for a nanny to start end of Jan 2022. We have beautiful 3 boys, ages 1, 3 and 6. I am returning to work and need help with my 2 younger boys during the day and all 3 boys once my eldest is home from school.

Hello! We are looking for a wonderful nanny for after school care of our 6 year old daughter and 9 year old son. The role would involve school pick-up, pick-up/drop off for any after school activities, playing games/craft, preparing snacks, park trips/outdoor play, supervising homework and light household duties (tidying, emptying dishwasher). Minimum 16-20 hours per week, with option of occasional evening babysitting as well.
I'm a busy single dad of an awesome 8yo boy and epic 6yo girl. Looking for more than child minding though... Actually looking for some "domestic help" 2-3 days per week for 2-3 hours at a time.
As time with the kids is an important part of the role, I figured looking for a babysitter who can cook and clean is better than looking for a helper that 'may' be able to babysit.
Times are super flexible for the right person - and when the kids eventually go back to school, I'll still want help.
My work keeps me busy, and where I really could use help is with the upkeep of my home. When the kids aren't here, cooking, cleaning, grab the groceries and generally taking care of my life admin stuff.
Anyway, if this interests you, I'd love to have a chat, then meet in person, then meet the kids if it all works out.
Look forward to hearing from you!
We are a family of 4 with two affectionate boys aged 6 and 10. Looking for someone to help with school drop off and pick ups, after school activities and some simple household chores (meal prep/washing). Both parents are in the health care industry and require reliability and some flexibility with respect to hours on any given week. We are happy to guarantee a minimum number of hours if needed. We see our nanny as another member of our family and will treat you as such. Both boys do a lot of music so anyone able to help with music practice would be much welcomed but certainly not a requirement. Our current nanny will be finishing university and commencing full time work.
Hi, I am looking for a babysitter/carer to help with some morning school drop offs/some pick ups and some help with care for my 16 yr old with an eating disorder - if you have any experience with this and are interested please contact me.

We are looking for a nanny to help our busy household. We have a 3.5y.o daughter who is at kinder a few days a week, but would like someone to care for her on Thursdays and Fridays at home.
Our previous nanny was a native Spanish speaker so if would be really nice for our daughter to be able to continue this if at all possible, she loves to get involved in art/play/singing/outdoors activities. A native French or German speaking nanny would also be helpful.
We also have a 15 months old son, and would like our new nanny to look after him a few days per week when his sister is at kinder. Total days would be 3-4 per week (around 25-35 per week), and can be further discussed. Occasionally a few hours on a Saturday.
We would like some help with household tasks as well, at least keeping the toys and kitchen under control and helping with food for the children.
We live in the Studley Park area, close to Kew Junction with several parks and playgrounds in walking distance.

Hi, I am I looking for someone to help care for my beautiful three month old girl Coco. I am looking for someone for a long term part-time position to care for Coco at my home in Toorak and (once restrictions ease) at my office in Hawthorn East, where I have a separate office space set up as a nursery. I ideally need between 5 - 6 hours three to four times a week. It would be great to have set times such as 12noon - 5pm Tuesday to Friday, but I work for myself and so can be quite flexible on timings and days. It's more important that I get back to some solid blocks of work. The role is primarily looking after Coco but there is also some light housekeeping included such as emptying the dishwasher and washing her clothes etc. Things that can be done whilst she is napping. We have two lovely dogs and two cats. You wouldn't need to walk them but being comfortable with them is important and letting them out to toilet every few hours. I would love to find someone who is looking for a continuous position and a role that can grow as Coco grows.
Hello, we are soon to be a family of five with 3 children under 3 years old. I am due to have a baby at the end of August. Most of the care we are seeking will be for our two boys who are 3yrs and 18 months old.
Some newborn experience is required as there will be times when I will need to leave the baby with the nanny to do pick ups and drop offs etc.
We are seeking a nanny who is comfortable with newborns and confident with two energetic boys- doing tasks such as changing nappies, meal prep, bath time, taking the children to activities and to the park. Also happy to do light household jobs and shows overall initiative.
We are requiring help 3 days a week from the morning 7.30am to approx 3.30pm with the option to increase these hours if needed.
Also there will also be opportunities to work weekends and nights.
We hope to find a nanny who will enjoy coming to help look after our children and be part of our family. Someone we can trust and rely on and have a great relationship with.
We look forward to hearing from you. Many thanks! Anna
I am a single mum with two children looking for a part time babysitter from 7-9am every morning at my house in malvern to help me get the children ready for school and childcare.
I have a girl aged 2.5 in childcare and a boy aged 6 in prep in Caulfield who are well behaved (most of the time).
I am looking for a happy flexible personal to help me with the children in the morning from 7-9am. This would include helping me shower the kids, brush their hair, brush their teeth, cut lunches, make breakfast, get the kids dressed and then drive my daughter to childcare in malvern east.
Some evenings I also require help from 4-7pm when the kids get home from school and occasionally from 4-10pm if I am going out with friends (sometimes this maybe on a Friday/ Saturday or Sunday night).
I would love to hear from you if you are happy, friendly, good with children, have your licence, and are flexible with hours as sometimes week to week times change as my ex husband may have the children but he only has them for 2 nights a week.
If this role sounds right for you please get in touch with me ASAP as I would love to meet you!
We are a very happy family of three and I would love the extra help!
Seeking a Mandarin speaking Nanny for 2 days per week, 9am to 5.30pm (flexible as to which days).
Car Drivers license required.
We have 3 kids - Girl (8yrs), Boy (6yrs) and Girl (2yrs).
The role requires caring for our 2.5yr old during day - adventures to the museum/beach/park - and collecting the older kids after school. (In lockdown, we'd be looking for help to take the older kids to the park in the afternoons).
We're looking for a nanny who has a bubbly confidence, terrific amounts of initiative for creative adventures, and gets deep into playing with the kids (jumping on the trampoline, kicking soccer balls, playing with the doll house...).
We are a warm family. We've had 2x Nannies previously that worked with us 1-3years and both would be willing to be a reference for us.
