We have two boys aged four and eight years who attend school. The four year old will be starting prekindergarten and the eight year old will be starting year 4 in February 2022. They are energetic, obedient and well mannered. Our previous nanny is moving interstate and we are looking for a new nanny to provide care for them from 230-300 to 630-700 pm on weekdays (Mon- Friday).
Care duties would involve, picking up kids from school, helping with their showers, dinner and homework. Attend after school activities like swimming and tennis .
Ability to cover school holidays( 800 am to 630 pm) is a preference but not essential.
We prefer someone who is energetic, responsible and punctual. Previous experience as a nanny/baby sitter preferable. Must have own car with full drivers license and must be fully vaccinated against covid. Pay rates would be starting from 25 dollars/hr.
Our family is looking for an experienced, warm and engaging carer to help us care for our 2 sweet boys (aged 5 and 3) & with some light cleaning & housekeeping, starting as soon as possible. The 5yo will start school in Feb 2022, so the role will usually involve more time and engaging activities with the 3yo. We need someone on most Mondays, Tuesdays, and Wednesdays from 8 AM to 4 PM in our home in Northmead while mum primarily works from home.
Mum and dad work in health, so we require someone who can provide evidence of at least 2 COVID vaccinations & complies with COVID safe protocols.
Friendly professional family in Winston Hills are looking for a trustworthy full time nanny who is comfortable in a fast-paced family environment and will invest in the development of B7 months.
Primary focus on the development of their precious little baby and maintaining his routine. As the baby reaches each milestone, the family expects the nanny to be proactive and hands on with age appropriate learning and play activities.
While the nanny’s focus will be mainly on the baby’s care and associated activities, the family’s other children, 8-year-old twin girls, will need direction and friendly encouragement when at home after school and during school holidays. The children are self-sufficient, but need to feel comfortable communicating and be happily occupied in the same spaces. They may occasionally want to help with the baby’s care and housekeeping duties and the family encourages them to take on age appropriate tasks.
Housekeeping duties specific to the baby are required when the carer has time - preparing his meals, folding/washing his clothes if needed, and also overall housekeeping when the baby is sleeping such as light tidying and keeping the kitchen and common areas clean and tidy.
Mum works remotely from home in the tech industry. Dad occasionally works from home in the finance industry.
Must have extensive experience with newborn babies and with school aged children.
Must love dogs. Family dog (Whippet) is both energetic and sensitive/quiet. Easy and only needs to be let out the back door a few times a day.
Must have current first aid certification or happy to update.
The family is looking for a January start and an ongoing commitment.
Parents are fully vaccinated and candidate must also be fully vaccinated.
Parents will manage drop offs and pick ups for the older children once school returns.
The family have a pool so must also be a confident swimmer for safety reasons.

Our family needs an addition to the team for after school care twice a week and occasional babysitting by agreement, for our eight year old son. This involves school pick up, driving to regular appointments and some energetic and fun play and possibly some simple meal preparation for dinner. Our son loves a chat with grown ups and will happily involve you in his strong subject matter interests. He is a social and energetic kid. Some experience with mild ASD/ADHD would be useful (but not essential) mainly, patience, flexibility and the ability to establish appropriate authority are important. We are expecting to add a small, gentle puppy to the family soon so comfort with that would be important as the dog may tag along to outings. We’re looking for a person who is willing to build strong rapport with a sensitive kid and can help build his social confidence simply by engaging in active and creative play. Safe driving to local appointments is part of the afternoon, we can provide a car. If this speaks to you we would love to hear from you.

Our family is in need of a nanny for our sweet 5 month old baby boy, Oscar (6 months by start date).
Ideally someone near Leichhardt who is experienced, reliable, trustworthy and fun.
We both work mostly from home and so will be close by most of the time. We’re wanting someone to be able to give Oscar their full attention to play, read, go on walks, feed, cuddle and put him down for naps, while we work.

Hoping for 2 mornings per week to start (10am - 2pm approx, Tuesday’s and flexible for either Wednesday or Thursday), building onto this as we all become more comfortable — you’ll be his first ever carer other than his parents.
We’d love someone happy to do light housekeeping during any naps, small errands, shopping etc (when on walks).

Identical 4 twin girls, 4 years. Needing help Wednesday 8-2.30. Taking them to the park, pool and play. They are best friends and well behaved.

Hi there, we are looking for a babysitter to look after our 2 year old from 8-4 weekdays. We are looking for someone long term. He's diabetic, so prefer someone who has experience or is willing to learn.
Grandparents are available to help. Need police and WWC checks. Please and lemme know what days are you available. No driving, cleaning or cooking is required. Looking forward to hearing from you 🙂
Are you available at 5pm on Saturdays?
I am looking for someone to do a "changeover" for my sweet little three year old boy at Petersham park each Saturday. The changeover will take about 10-15 minutes and I will pay $50 per changeover.
You will be the right person if you are older than 25 years of age, calm, responsible, and OK working in a slightly awkward situation.
In brief, my son spends Saturday with his dad, but I don't think it is a good idea for the parents to come in contact because that can lead to rude words and/or conflict in front of the little boy. I need someone to meet the Dad at Petersham park, then hold the boys hand and walk five minutes around the corner to return the boy to me. You will need to arrive at 4.55pm on Saturday and be prepared to wait 10-20 minutes if the Dad is late (he is usually on time).
I will understand if some Saturdays you might not be available, but I need someone who is available at least 75% of time, and clearly communicates with me when they are not available.
Usually this job only takes 10-15 minutes, but I pay $50 per changeover because while the Dad is sometimes calm and polite, at other times he is rude. In the past he has done things such as giving people the "silent treatment", ie. not saying hello when he meets you, or throwing a hat on the ground when he didn't want it. If you think you can handle this, you might be the person I'm really searching for!
More than happy to answer any questions so you can think about if this job is the right fit for you. Just email me and we'll make a time to talk.
Thank you <3
