Working with Amanda was a relief.

Being an overwhelmed new Mum back at work after 4 weeks of giving birth, Amanda took the work off my hands and found the perfect care for me and my family.

She was professional, thorough, friendly and experienced. She knew what to look for, what needed checks. She covered it all.

I couldn’t recommend her more highly.

ZOE + BENJI MARSHALL – CANADA BAY, NSW.

Amanda is extremely reliable and hardworking.  It’s so unusual to find a nanny recruiter who also has experience with children and working “on the ground” so Amanda is a rare find! 

Highly recommend ?

LOUISE CROFT – BRISBANE, QLD.

My situation is a little different due to a disability, so I have struggled in the past with nanny recruiters, but Amanda was so knowledgeable and supportive through the process. Because of her amazing experience she was able to match our family with the perfect person for our needs. Amanda is a hardworking lady with great communication skills and a wonderful heart!
