For new families having a newborn can be a confusing and exhausting time. Dream Nannies work with specialist nannies that provide new families support with setting routines and sleep patterns.

A night nanny is an experienced nanny who offers overnight assistance, allowing new parents to get the rest they need and will work with parents to establish sleep routines so your new baby will soon be sleeping through the night.

Our Maternity nannies specialise in guiding families through the early stages of parenthood, They offer invaluable support, helping families adapt to the demands of a new born, from feeding techniques to establishing routines.

Our Night Nannies and Maternity Nannies help families and their new babies get the best start in life offering much needed comfort, peace of mind and blissful sleep !


Experience the convenience and care of our after-school nannies.  An after-school nanny can step in when the school bell rings, providing essential support for your family’s busy routine. Assisting with homework, engaging in activities, and preparing children’s dinners are all part of their duties.  

After school nannies are generally studying a childcare related course, and have experience in this role.

In home care can only be provided by an IHC Approved Service – once you have selected your Service Dream Nannies can recruit your Educator for you.
