Nannies / In-Home Care Providers (Children)

Job Description

About us

The Childminding Co. is a professional nanny and babysitting agency looking to place nannies with a number of amazing Rockhampton and Yeppoon families.  

While we also offer a casual nanny and babysitting service, we have had an influx of interest in regular nanny placements and are primarily recruiting for these positions. However, feel free to express your interest in our casual service if that’s more your thing. 


Tasks & responsibilities

All our nannies are recruited as independent contractors meaning you get a say in which families you work with and your role within the family. A live-in arrangement isn't your thing – that’s cool. Prefer to nanny a certain age group – you got em’.

A nanny’s tasks will very much depend on what the family needs. This could include but is not limited to:

  • Planning activities and excursions 
  • Planning, preparing and feeding nutritious meals
  • Designing, implementing and following schedules 
  • Daycare, school and extra-curricular drop-off and pickup 
  • Assistance with homework 
  • Housework and errand running
  • Pet care


Qualifications & experience

The Childminding Co. are looking for special people who genuinely enjoy caring for children and who can demonstrate their knowledge, skills and experience with references.

You’ll need these qualifications (or be willing to get them!):

  • Aged over 18 years 
  • Current First Aid and CPR certification 
  • Current Working with Children Check/Blue Card (QLD) 
  • Current driver’s licence with own reliable vehicle 
  • At least one year’s experience, with references 
  • Whooping cough vaccination (if caring for children under 4 years)

Police check and specialised skills and qualifications are well-regarded and may be required by certain families. 



The Childminding Co. will promote you and your services, manage initial contact right up to placement and use our expertise to match you with families ideally suited to you. Importantly, we can offer contract oversight with terms and conditions to protect all parties. We do all the ground work, leaving you to do what you do best.

On your side, you operate as independent contractors, meaning you get a say in which families you work with, are paid 100% of what you earn and are paid directly. Rate, hours, conditions and benefits are all negotiable, with The Childminding Co. offering assistance in negotiations. 


If you want to take your childminding career further and make meaningful, long-lasting connections with local families - click apply or contact Shana to find out more.
