This week is Nanny Appreciation Week in Australia, a time to give some thanks back to all the nannies who tirelessly keep so many families together by providing help and support around the clock. Our last mum in profile for this year is the gorgeous Aussie actress, Zoe Tuckwell Smith from Winners and Losers.

It's been another busy, rewarding and incredibly quick year. Time flies when you have kids. We thank you all for your support in 2014 and look forward to seeing you all again in February. In the meantime you can keep up with us via Facebook, Twitter & Google+

Best wishes and happy holidays.
Nanny Appreciation Week
24 - 29 November 2014
Show your appreciation for your nanny or manny.
This week is the Australian Nanny Association's Nanny Appreciation Week and with one in ten families we polled this year using the services of a nanny, either full or part time, nannies play an integral part of many Australian families' lives.

Whether you agree or not with the concept or cost of having a nanny, there's no denying that they provide many Australian families with a lifeline and support.

Although long day care is the most popular form of child care, for some families, it doesn't provide the flexibility they need. For those with odd or long working hours, several children in preschool care or spanning pre-school and primary school or indeed those families who have young children with special care requirements, nannies can often be a better solution.

C4K: Your little girl is about to turn one. How has your life changed this year?

ZTS: Magnificently. I never expected to love being a mumma as much as I do. It's the most joyful I've ever felt.

C4K: How do you juggle working as an actress and being a mum?

ZTS: I don't really. I only went back for a few months after Velvet was born to finish up a job I’d been on for some time. It was really difficult juggling it all. I'm finished now and have taken the rest of the year off to be a mum.

Happy holidays
Rox, Mark & the team
It has been a fantastic year for us here at and we'd like to say thanks for your continued support and encouragement.

This year we unveiled the brand new website to make it easier for Australia's early childhood sector to advertise and apply for jobs.

We also launched, the premier destination for Australian organisations seeking a better way of caring for employees while doing business.

In 2014 more than 3 million Australian families visited the website to source and secure high quality child care and we enhanced the service with our unique Child Care Cost Widget to make it easier for parents to compare the average cost of child care by postcode.

We expect to launch 2015 with a bang when we unveil the new and improved website.

From everyone here at we wish you a happy and peaceful holiday season and we look forward to working with you in 2015.
