Our Services

Transforming Families with Tailored Support

Short Term Nanny

Every family should have a reliable, trusted adult to turn to when life throws a curveball, or you simply need some precious time out. With a NOAM Nanny you get this and a whole lot more.

Family Assistant

Your partner in parenting. A part-time regular nanny will be your family’s greatest asset, helping to meet the demands of daily living and creating a safe, caring space for your child to flourish as they grow. 

Nanny Share

When two homes are better than one. Our Nanny Share allows two families – whether neighbours, cousins, or friends – to combine resources. Suited for up to five children at either one or both homes, it’s a popular option. 

Kids' Club

Our mobile Kids’ Club brings the fun to your event, so your little guests can party in a safe, controlled environment, while your big guests relax, worry free. Find out how we can tailor a package to suit your needs.

Maternity Nanny

Let an experienced Maternity Nanny support you in this exciting and challenging time. Your Maternity Nanny will teach you all the essential skills and help you establish a new routine, leaving you feeling relaxed, confident and prepared.

Executive Household Management

Designed for our executive families visiting the region for work or pleasure, our highly trained Household Managers ensure your Far North residence is ready for your arrival and feels just like home during your stay.

Excellence in childcare is achieved through enthusiasm, engagement and consistency.

What Our Clients Are Saying

Why entrust your children to anyone other than an experienced childcare provider?

We recently used this service at Mission Beach Elandra Resort! Sarah was fantastic and our girls loved it! They did painting, story time and even watched Beauty & the Beast! Sarah texted us with updates throughout the night, which I loved!
