” I Found my previous au pair through my own advert – this time went with Jackie – so so SO much better, stress free, saved hours of time and the nanny she found is perfect. She found my nanny within 48 hours of talking to her.”

Suzie, Gold Coast , Aug 2015

“Thanks once again for a job well done. You’ve been a savour so many times now.

 Susannah has been brilliant and hopefully the next one will be too!”

The Christies – Sept 2015

“I live on Gold Coast and had an urgent, one-off need for family help in Sydney. As soon as Dream Nannies got my request, they were straight onto it. They found me the perfect match for my needs within 48 hours and it all worked out wonderfully.

Dream Nannies were an absolute pleasure to deal with. I thoroughly recommend them, and Jackie in particular.”

 Su, Gold Coast, April 2013
