NEW! After school extra curricular help
Start Date:02 Feb 22 Applications Close:30 Jan 22

Job Details: Part-time
Hi prospective carer
I have a low maintenance 10 year old who needs someone to collect her from school and drive her to her Wednesday afternoon extra curricular activity. It is an 18min (18km) journey but will be paid for a full hour so as to allow for the return journey for the successful carer. Reliability is an absolute must. Clean driving record required, phone use whilst driving will not be tolerated. Other children in the car is acceptable but no non-vetted adults. Extra afternoons may be available on occasion as well, pending on carer availability of course.
We're looking for some help in the afternoons each weekday (i.e. 3-7pm) for around 15-20h/week.
You'd be helping with our boys (5 & 6), meals (afternoon snack & dinner prep) and general help. We have our two boys, as well as a 15 yr old daughter (just starting year 10) and my wife is pregnant.. with twins (so you can guess why we need some help :D).
This would be something ongoing (6m+) and while we don't need school pickups just yet, that may change in the future, so own car would be ideal.
If you'd like some further details, please reach out.
We are looking for a fun and active nanny to do the after school pick up routine. This involves collecting boys (7 and 8) from school and taking them to after school activities, appointments, homework, dinner, showers, folding boys washing and uniforms ironed. We also have a gorgeous therapy dog who would love you to walk him or throw his ball.
A car and license are essential.
Ideally you would be able to cover Monday to Thursday, but happy to negotiate for right candidate.
Rate based on experience.
Our family needs a kind and responsible babysitter for after school/daycare care on most MONDAYS. This will be for an 18 month old girl and 5 year old boy.
You will be required to pick the kids up in the afternoon and walk home (we do have a car that will be available if its raining) then play, homework, easy dinners etc. The hours will vary from 3 hours to possible overnight care due to our work responsibilities but you will have advance notice of required hours.
The position will start February 2022 and will be a permanent position.

We are looking for a loving nanny to help us with our two children -- Jack (6 years) and Matilda (3 years).
This year, Jack starts Grade One at New Farm State School and Matilda in Kindergarten. We are after a nanny who can help out in the mornings (breakfast and drop-offs) and in the afternoons (pick-ups, after school activities, errands (e.g. food shopping), helping with school work / learning, healthy dinners and ready for bed), together with light cleaning (we have a cleaner so only light house duties). We are after a nanny who always puts safety first, who is loving, kind, values learning, fun, creative and energetic. Having a car is essential for drop-offs and pick-ups. We think our kids are pretty great, but we are obviously biased!
As our current nanny of three years has just finished up to commence full time teaching, we are looking for this position to start as possible.
We can discuss exact start and finish times via email / phone (0436814947) and can connect you to our amazing current nanny for references.

We are looking for someone who is reliable, upbeat and is confident around children to help our family this year and (hopefully) in the years to come. We have three boys; twins in prep and grade 2 boy.
This year we need someone who is happy to collect our children after school two to three afternoons a week (3pm to 6pm) and have the capacity to pick up some additional babysitting as the need arises (i.e. likely the occasional additional afternoon and odd weekend babysitting.
They go to school in Toowong and we live in Indooroopilly. You would need to be comfortable picking them up, taking them to activities, taking them home, helping with homework, making dinner and doing some housekeeping (laundry and general tidy-up before dinner etc).
The boys are energetic and love spending time outdoors but also are keen on board/card games.
If you are interested, please reach out and let us know a bit about yourself and your experience.
Seeking after-school driver & carer for active 9 year-old boy, 3 weekdays (or more if you’re available!). Negotiable rate based on experience. Our house has puppers so must be dog-friendly.

Dad works shift work so we are hoping to find someone who can provide some flexibility around availability (days won’t always be the same each week and will depend on what evenings he is rostered on). We are looking for someone who will fit in well with our family who we can rely on long-term.

Boys are really good kids and old enough to be relatively easy just really need assistance with homework and generally taking care of them after school. We do have a separate Granny Flat if someone is looking for accomodation also.

Hi there, we are looking for a part time babysitter /nanny two days a week on an ongoing basis and possibly a regular shift on the weekend too. Mainly to support meal times, bath time, homework/activities as needed and being an extra pair of hands for us in those hectic evenings.
We definitely need Mondays afternoon e.g from 2.30-6.30pm) and one other day ideally Thursday evening (e,g 4.30-7.30) but can be flexible on the second day. We can work with you to come up with the best schedule.
A bit about us: we are a busy family with three girls with two kids at primary school. 2021 was a year of stress and change for our family as I was diagnosed with breast cancer but after chemo and surgery I can thankfully say that I’m cancer free. The girls have shown amazing resilience in the past 6 months as we have dealt with our new normal. We have a bit of a road ahead with some ongoing treatment and are looking for some home support as my husband transitions back to full time work (I work part time and am self employed but I am on leave for the next few months as I finish treatment). Look forward to welcoming you to our home!

On Wednesdays and Thursdays the role would involve picking up our 4 year old from Kindy at 2.30pm, then picking up the twins from daycare at around 4/4.30pm and giving the girls dinner, baths and getting them ready for bed. On Fridays, depending on your availability, it would be a full day with the twins whilst doing Kindy drop-off and pick-up with our 4 year old. If you are interested in the role, but aren't available for a full day on Friday, we currently have the option of putting the twins in daycare on a Friday, in which case the routine would be the same as Wed/Thurs.

We would love someone who can help us out into the future so that we can ensure some stability for our girls.
We are hoping for someone who can start around the end of February.
If you think this role sounds well suited to you, we would absolutely love to hear from you. x
We are looking for someone on Tuesday and Thursday afternoons to look after 3 kids 10 - 14 years. Mostly this is job entails driving kids to extracurricular activities, getting some dinner on and some washing and folding. Kids are well behaved, studious and reasonably independent. Petrol allowance provided.
Hi, our daughter starts prep this year and I had been really organized and sorted nanny arrangements before Christmas but sadly these plans have fallen through.
We are a happy and calm family and would welcome you into our lives as a member of our family. We are also a sensible but cautious family in our current approach to COVID and would appreciate someone with the same attitude.
Pick up from school and our daughter has some after school activities that will form part of the week but otherwise will be based at home.
We’d love someone focused on our child’s development and not on screens.
Some light meal prep would be helpful.
Can’t wait to meet you!
