    Default Thinking of becoming a Nanny.

    After trying to find childcare for my daughter, I have given up and was given a major wake up call to the lack of support in my local area. It has made me incredibly passionate about supporting other mothers. I am now looking at becoming a Nanny, with an emphasis of early learning education and complete transparency. Realistically though, would anyone really hire a registered Nanny with a child of their own?

    I would for the right nanny! I looked high and low and couldn't find anyone I trusted. So if I did and they had a child I'd be fine with it

    I would definitely hire a nanny with their own children. What better work experience than already having children yourself!

    TBH if I couldn't claim the CCR from them I would stick to long day care for financial reasons. If I could still claim I would
    I think it's great that a nanny had their own kids, perfect CV!

    Absolutely! If it meant DD had a friend to play with while being looked after, plus I'd prefer a nanny with experience with their own child for sure.

    That's a good point. It is frustrating that you can't claim CCR with a Nanny

    I'm in rural Victoria and two families I know have a live in nanny.
    My husband was a "Manny" internationally for an Aussie family just before we met 11 years ago. We still keep in touch with them and my cousin in currently a full time nanny closer to Melbourne.
    So yes we would hire a nanny if it was financially viable-my sister and I have spoken about sharing one but again without the help of CCR (and lack of available nannies in the area) it's probably not possible.
