Minimum booking is 4 hours

Please Note:

Au-Pairs (Services Temporarily on hold due to COVID-19 - please contact us for further information/assistance)
Are: Live-in Nannies that offer a weekly allowance that is a subsidised rate to include accommodation, food, rent, utility bills etc.  Au-Pairs are willing to travel Australia Wide so they may not be located in your area, or in the area where your booking/placement is required if looking for a Nanny/Babysitter/In-home Carer.  However, we will endeavour to assist with finding another carer in your area to assist your needs and we would provide you with a full brief on the assigned carer/s.

Nannies/Babysitters/In-home Carers/Before & or After School Care
Are: Live-out carers that charge an hourly rate with a minimum 4 hours per day for one shift, if split shift is required (i.e. Before & After School Care) then a minimum 2 hours in the morning and 4 hours in the afternoon will be required.  The reason these are set minimum hours is because it is very difficult to find carers who are willing to commit to fewer hours therefore meaning less consistency for you and your family.
