Why find a local nanny through Airtasker?

Want to be matched with a nanny near you who’ll go above with your kids? Many families are finding that hiring a nanny or au pair is a great alternative to traditional childcare services. Not only will a nanny provide personalised one-on-one care to your children in your home, but if you have more than one child, it can work out to be more cost-effective, too. When you find a nanny near you who fits perfectly with your family’s needs, you’ll enjoy a more flexible lifestyle, whether you need a nanny one day a week, or five.

The best place to find a nanny near you is on Airtasker. With our transparent rating and review system, you can easily compare the best local nannies so you can be confident in finding a reliable, trusted, professional nanny for your kids.

Top Nanny related questions

Friend and family recommendations are common ways to find a good nanny. Unfortunately, personal connections can limit your options. Airtasker offers a solution by connecting you to highly rated nannies near you. Through our transparent ratings and reviews system, you can decide who will best fit your family’s set-up.  
Nannies need to be at least 18 years old and have relevant qualifications. These requirements include first aid and CPR certificates, a Working with Children Check, and a National Police Check. What’s more, nannies need a Certificate III, Diploma, or teaching qualification. Otherwise, nannies should be working towards a relevant qualification.  
The difference between nanny vs daycare comes down to price. A nanny is much more expensive than daycare. If you struggle to pay for daycare rates, employing a nanny will be even more difficult. Regardless, a nanny can provide one-on-one and more comprehensive child care. Post your nanny request on Airtasker. You just might find a good nanny who can work with your budget.  
Nannies and au pairs differ in regulations. Au pairs are young persons (18 - 30 years old) who go abroad to live with a native family to learn the culture in exchange for childcare. What’s more, an au pair works for a maximum number of hours per week. They also receive pocket money from the host family. In contrast, nannies get a salary like any other job. Their working hours are flexible to the family’s requests and are regulated by the country’s labour law.
Nannies do housework related to caring for the children. These basic household chores include cleaning and organising kids’ bedrooms and play areas. Nanny services are flexible to your family needs. If you need extra help around the house, feel free to mention this detail in your Airtasker listing.
Providing food for your nanny is an optional setup. But make sure to align expectations with your nanny before she comes in for work. Some families offer meals for their nannies, while some nannies provide their own meals. The arrangement depends on you and your nanny.

Suggested reads about Nanny

What does a professional nanny service include?

A professional nanny service doesn’t have to cost you a fortune. Suggest your rate and find a nanny near you. Our platform lets you check ratings and reviews so you find someone you can trust. Here are some tasks your nanny can help with:


Your nanny’s main role is to take care of your children, ensure their safety, and tend to their basic needs. Childcare tasks include feeding, bathing, changing nappies, and putting a child to bed. To prepare for all situations, many nannies go through First Aid and CPR training. Also, an experienced nanny will know whether to call the parents or dial 000 in case of an emergency.


Know your kid is in capable hands when going to a specific location. A reliable nanny can take your kids to school and collect them later in the day. What’s more, your nanny can go with your child to after-school activities. These activities include swimming lessons, music lessons, and playdates. Hire a nanny near you via Airtasker to find someone who knows their way around your community.

Meal prep

No time to cook or do grocery shopping? No worries. A nanny can prepare healthy meals, snacks, and packed lunches for your child. If you need a nanny to help with groceries and other tasks, mention this need on your Airtasker listing. Also, specify your child's food preferences, allergies, or special nutritional needs. This detail helps your nanny prepare as needed.


A nanny can help develop a child’s learning and everyday skills. You can request a nanny who has studied child development. Some nannies have trained to work with a specific age group. And other nannies can offer basic tutoring.

Light housework

Nannies can also help out with light housework. These chores include packing away toys, folding clothes, and cleaning the house. What’s more, a nanny can disinfect toys, clean play areas, sterilise bottles, and other areas. A nanny’s usual roles relate to caring for children and cleaning up the mess they make.

Nanny to watch my son afterschool


Manhattan Beach, CA 90266, USA

Jan 1st 2023

Need a nanny Monday thru Friday 2 to 6 pm, 1:30 start on Wednesday, with occasional extra time beyond 6 pm if we get home late from work. Our son is mildly autistic but requires no special treatment other than an understanding that his verbal ability is still growing. He can communicate his needs and just needs help with homework and meal prep. The rate is $20 an hour but you must be dependable as our jobs require us to be on time. More than 1 call out every 2 months and or arriving late more than 3 times in a year will lead to termination. If you give fair notice before a call out, that is 2 hours before your shift, we will not hold that against you but the limit of this will be dependant upon the event or number of events that occur. - Due date: Flexible
