About Dream Nannies

Childcare Recruitment

Dream Nannies is a Brisbane based Nanny & Au Pair Agency, providing a personal, professional recruitment service ensuring families receive high quality, affordable and reliable childcare. We specialise in placing live-in Au Pairs and Nannies with families all over Australia.

We have been successfully matching nannies and au pairs with families all over Australia since 2007 and have extensive professional recruitment experience as well as the childcare knowledge that comes with working as a nanny and motherhood.

Dream Nannies are passionate about achieving the best outcomes for families, nannies and au pairs and are active members of the Australian Nanny Association and the Cultural Au Pair Association of Australia.

We understand that finding a nanny or an au pair can be a stressful, frustrating and time-consuming process for families, so let Dream Nannies do all the hard work for you!

About Jackie

I’m passionate about family life, children and health and in particular womens’ health, so many mums are running ourselves into the ground whilst trying to juggle family commitments and work!

With a background in professional recruitment and coming from a corporate background I understand the pressures of trying to run a household and manage a career. I had also travelled and worked as a Live-in Au Pair so I had firsthand knowledge of how this fabulous arrangement between Au Pairs/Nannies and families can work.

Our Nannies and Au Pairs help restore balance, give us back some time and maintain our sanity!

Our small team here at Dream Nannies is committed to providing our families with amazing service and highest quality candidates available to help ensure happy families, nannies and most importantly happy children!

 

About Donna

I am a busy working mum with a young family trying to get the work/life balance right – aren’t we all?

I have a husband and a gorgeous young daughter who is my world, my strength and inspiration behind what I do here with Dream Nannies.

My background is in Customer Services and I’ve also worked and lived in the UK as a Nanny.

I love what I do and I am very passionate about matching families with the right person for their needs and know firsthand what an amazing experience it can be for all involved. There is such a great fulfilment I get from hearing some of the amazing feedback we get from happy families and nannies/au pairs. I personally know how hard it is for families these days, especially for those with no family support directly around you, the raising costs of childcare and wanting the best care for your children is like.

I too feel these and that is why I truly believe in the service we offer as such a personal experience for all involved.

About Tania

As a new mum and latest member of the Dream Nannies team, I enjoy channelling my parenting experience and my professional knowledge and education into finding perfectly-suited au pairs and nannies for each family. There is nothing more satisfying than helping our families find carers based on their specific values, needs and goals – literally, their Dream Nanny!

Although I’m originally from the United States, I’ve lived abroad in the UK .As an avid traveller and reformed nomad, I understand implicitly how rewarding and beneficial a cultural exchange can be through our au pair program, in which we truly strive to create the best possible fit for both our families and carers.

My favourite part about working with Dream Nannies is our small team that just “gets it”; we get what it’s like to manage a household whilst working; we get how nerve-racking it can be to find high-quality childcare; and, most importantly, we get that our families, au pairs and nannies deserve all the first-rate support and attention we’d expect to receive from a service like ours.

It’s this insight that gives us an edge over the other agencies (along with our good taste in coffee and keen fashion sense!).

“Fantastic Agency “ We have used Dream Nannies twice and both times have had amazing au pairs placed with our family. It is so nice to have the guesswork taken out of choosing someone suitable. (we have tried to do it on our own and been burnt badly!) I cannot recommend Dream Nannies highly enough! Thank you, Jackie and Donna,

“Highly recommend” I have used Dream Nannies for over 2yrs and each new Au Pair has been the perfect fit for our family. Jackie & her team listen to your brief and carefully consider when matching. Turnaround time has always been very quick and dealing with Jackie is so stress free. After trying to recruit Au Pairs myself I found Dream Nannies to be a savior! Their service is personalized and friendly unlike other agencies who made me feel like just another number!

“Highly recommended” We had two weeks to find a new au pair and I called three agencies, as well as placing my own advertisements. Jackie responded the day I called Dream Nannies, had the first interview lined up within 48 hours and within a week we had found the ideal candidate. She saved me hours of time, was great to work with and extremely professional in her approach with both ourselves and the candidates. I will definitely use Dream Nannies again and highly recommend Jackie.

We have had two placements through Dream Nannies and the service has been excellent. Took the time to gain a very thorough understanding of our family needs which meant both placements were fantastic matches. Very professional and always very positive and accommodating. Recommend them to anyone looking for a Nanny or Housekeeper.
