Welcome to Sydney North Shore Nannies! Trish, a local North Shore mum decided to start Sydney North Shore Nannies in April 2016 because she realised first hand, how hard it was to find a professional and experienced nanny that she could trust.
Whether you want or are wanting to return to work, have some time for yourself, or just need an extra pair of hands around the house, Sydney North Shore Nannies can find the right nanny to help you and your family. We know that finding a reliable babysitter can be time-consuming, and many parents have given up on ‘date-night’.
We also know many mothers feel that they can’t return to work because their hours don’t suit regular daycare or school hours
So Trish has put the call out in the North Shore, and found a treasure-trove of wonderful nannies and babysitters – she has met them, interviewed them, checked their references and ensured they have all the necessary paperwork. So you can relax, knowing the nanny you entrust your children with is the next best person for the job (second to you of course!).
We look forward to hearing from you, and helping to find the right carer to meet your family’s needs.

We worry about what a child will become tomorrow, yet we forget that he is someone today.
Nothing you do for children is ever wasted.
Children are not a distraction from more important work. They are the most important work.
Our nannies step-in where you leave-off, providing love, care, nurturing, support and kindness. They take care of all child-related duties. They are responsible for child development, educational play, providing age-appropriate activities, entertainment and general health and well-being. They will write in a communication journal, noting daily activities, feeding habits, toileting patterns, developmental milestones, naughty or nice behaviors, any concerns they have, or changes they notice.
Parents can enjoy a luxurious night out for a corporate function, a wedding or any other special occasion and even enjoy a sleep in! Then you can come home in the morning, knowing that your child is being cared for by one of our professional nannies.
Our nannies can help with homework, readers, can drive the children to and from school, kinder, activities and other appointments. Nannies can prepare and serve meals, and tidy the kitchen, including dishes. They can help around the house with washing, light cleaning, running errands and shopping. They can bath the children, get them ready for bed and put them to bed if required.
Two families can engage the services of one of our nannies to care for their children at either one of their homes and split the cost. This is a great option for friends/family/neighbours who live close and have compatible work hours, as well as similar parenting philosophies.
(for newborns and babies not sleeping through the night)
New, sleep deprived parents can enjoy a full night of sleep without interruptions while our night nannies bottle feed, change nappies, soothe and tend to your baby’s every need. They can also help prepare and sterilise bottles, dress and prepare baby in the morning.
Overseas or interstate families travelling to Sydney can too experience the comfort of our experienced, skilled and fully screened nannies to meet their particular Childcare needs.

"Amelia has been wonderful. She has developed a lovely relationship with the boys and they will really miss her. I am hoping that we can continue to call on Amelia for occasional work or if the situation changes and we need a bit more help."
"We are so happy with Ysabel and how much she just loves and looks after our baby girl. Thank you for helping us out. Really appreciate the time and effort you have put into our placement."
“The experience of working with Sydney North Shore Nannies has been great. It was a tough ask trying to get someone last minute so thank you. Our nanny, Kate has been awesome. She made a massive effort with our daughter and the results were evident to seeing in how happy she was. Our daughter is Kate’s number one fan.”
“Jessica was great,she was punctual and friendly and the kids liked her and did not seem to mind at all to be left with her... They had a great afternoon playing with Jessica and when I got home they were happily telling me all the things they did. It was the very first time I had ever used a nanny agency and it was a great experience! Thank you :)”
"The best part of having Bella over was she was able to complete the evening routine in the house, with dinner and baths, while we got ready! The kids were so well behaved for her and I know as we left that she would have no trouble getting them settled and into bed. I would recommend Sydney North Shore Nannies as the process was very professional and quick. I have confidence in the checks that SNSN conduct to get the right person for our children. Once the nanny arrived they were able to just fit right into the routine straight away with minimal disruption and fuss so we could leave easily without any distress to our boys."
