Reason Ten
Save Hundreds Over Traditional Services

Nanny agencies charge upwards of $800 to find you a fulltime nanny and take much longer than using this website. Sign up here now.

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. Other websites. At $95 for 3 months we believe we have one of the lowest registration fees when you look at the large size of our database of carers. This is a one-off fee and your only other costs will be the rate of pay you negotiate with your caregiver.
