Family's Introduction to Nanny

Hi there.

Family of 4 in Melbourne, Australia looking for a Nanny/Carer/Housekeeper/Tutor.

Our nanny (whom we found on this site) is leaving us to live with her fiance. We are sad to see her go but wish her all the best!

We are a warm, sociable, kind and welcoming family. Many people may say that, but we are actually like this in real life! Our home is large, walking distance to gym, pool (home has pool too), shops, cafe, restaurants and public transport located 15 mins from city of Melbourne. We are very lucky to live in a lovely suburb surrounded by a great community of lovely people. Our yearly Christmas party has become a much anticipated event for our neighbours and friends!

Our family consists of Mum & Dad, both professionals that work from home. 2 young adult children both boys, one at University and other has Down Syndrome, attends drama school and other programs. Our family is very much into working hard both at work and at play. Wednesday nights are family dinner nights where we gather. Friday and Saturday nights will see us out in Melbourne trying out new restaurants. I believe our children’s friends must like us as we find they tend to end up at our dinner table more frequently than not! All wonderful, fun, friendly and engaging young people.

We also love keeping healthy, so fitness and eating well is important to us. And we love travelling, experiencing new places, meeting new people. Our nanny has travelled with us. So far, travels have included South East Asia, Europe and the US. She has also advanced her career with our support. As you can see from our description above, we value building healthy relationships. We are a generous family by nature. Our current nanny has benefited greatly by being a part of our family. As she cared about us, we in turn cared about her. If your values resemble ours, we would like to hear from you.

We will reply to all suitable candidates.
