Nanny Agency – What we offer in childcare

Our childcare roles in our nanny agency

What are the differences between nannies, au pairs and childcarers

Super Nannies is a nanny agency offering on nanny placements and nanny training courses. Our focus is on childcare.

We are very fortunate in SA to have the option of hiring a domestic nanny at a reasonable cost compared to overseas.  Finding the right nanny is vital to managing your family life in a happier, productive manner. Our nanny agents know how difficult it can be to have a new nanny in the home however we also know when you find that right person, what a difference it does make to your family life.

It’s always beneficial to indicate what your top three family requirements as there is no perfect nanny. Our nanny agency’s aim is to match as closely as possible to your first few requirements.

There are some subtle differences when it comes to the job description of childcarers.
