Nanny services


Applications for care under the Nanny Pilot Program implemented by the Department of Education and Training, have now closed.

This came into effect on January 1, 2017, after the government reviewed the program and made some changes, most notably, the cessation of new applications.

Existing families already matched with a Nanny employed with Wesley Mission Queensland can continue participation in the pilot until its conclusion mid-2018. Families already approved to participate and who are not yet matched with a nanny are encouraged to keep in contact with us as we continue to endeavour to place suitable nannies with families. If you know of someone that may be interested in becoming your Nanny, please put them in touch with us as soon as possible.

For existing approved families

To access/ continue to access nannying services you need to meet and maintain the following criteria:

  • Have an existing approval to participate under the Nanny Pilot program (NPP)
  • Parents or guardian needs to be engaged in work, study or training for eight hours per fortnight
  • Combined parent or guardian annual income must be less than $250,000
  • Have difficulty accessing mainstream child care
Our educators

Our nannies are aged over 18 years, are suitably qualified and employed on a casual basis.

Our coordination unit supports and monitors the nannies in each family placement to ensure the match works well and continues to meet the needs of parents and children.

The Nanny Pilot Program provides a subsidy to currently approved eligible families towards the hourly cost of care. The subsidy is paid per child, per hour and is of particular benefit for families with three or more children.
