For Parents/Families:

We Need a Nanny provides parents and families with the ability to search, locate and make first contact with caregivers in your area through a single easy to use website.  Our database contains caregivers of all types including nannies, babysitters, and au pairs so you can choose the one that's right for you.  There's no need to worry about your privacy when making first contact, as by using our contact centre you can safely and easily initiate contact with the caregivers you select without revealing your personal information or email address until you choose to.

Our caregiver profiles provide the important information you need to choose the right caregiver for your family needs.  These profiles provide both relevant skills and past work experience so you can make a wise choice easily.

Four easy steps to finding a great caregiver:

  1. Try out the free trial search on our home page to view details on the caregivers in your area.
  2. Register for $69 for 3 months unlimited access of all the caregivers on our website.
  3. Contact the caregiver (s) who suit you and arrange an interview to view their paperwork ( references, police checks etc. ) and to see if they are appropriate for your family.
  4. Make an offer to the caregiver of your choice to start looking after your children.

Other alternatives to finding a caregiver:

  1. Nanny agencies charge upwards of $800 to find you a fulltime nanny and take much longer than using this website.
  2. Nanny agencies charge upwards of $20 every time you use their services for a babysitter. The babysitter belongs to them, and every time you want to use their services you need to go through the agency and pay their fees each time. There is usually a minimum 3 hour booking at rates that the agency sets. At no stage are you allowed to contact the babysitter directly. The whole process ends up costing a lot more and certainly takes a lot more time. We take out the �middle-man� and pass the time and cost savings onto you.
  3. Classified ads : Depending on where and how often you advertise, costs range from $50-$190 for one advertisement. You then must wait for the newspaper to go to print before answering the phone, writing down all the applicant�s details before deciding who to contact. If nothing comes of the first advertisement you must go through the whole process again. With this website you have 3 months unlimited access, 24 hours, 7 days a week.
  4. Other websites. At $69 for 3 months we believe we have the lowest registration fees. This is a one-off fee and your only other costs will be the rate of pay you negotiate with your caregiver.

Lowest price guarantee: If you find a better price online for a similar service then please contact us and we will beat their price.
