Ournanny.com.au has been in development since early 2010. It had become obvious that a fresh approach to childcare was needed, with Nannies and Babysitters offering a tailored service to individual families, beyond what hours are required.
The number of mothers staying home to look after their children had significantly decreased and the rate of mothers returning to work was on the rise.
With society changing, economic times tougher and single parent households increasing, it was obvious that the critical thing missing in a child’s life was the influence of their mother.
Because of these factors and the increasing child care centre prices many families are looking for a more personal approach.
Becoming a nanny or babysitter could be the best thing you ever do.
Have you ever thought about what it would be like to have a casual, part-time, full-time, overnight or weekend job looking after children? Having the flexibility of setting your hourly rate and availability?
Whether you’re studying at university, are a mother with young children, a grandmother with adult children, or have a simple love of kids – a babysitter or nanny job could be what you’ve been looking for.
