Meet Sarah Jones

The powerhouse behind Nannies on a Mission.

Sarah Jones isn’t your ordinary nanny and Nannies on a Mission isn’t your average child-minding service.

This dynamic boutique agency is the culmination of Sarah’s work across two decades in household management and family assistant roles, as well as her extensive experience as nanny to the stars across the UK and the US.

To create the NOAM magic, Sarah draws on her own extensive experience and unique skill set to personally recruit, interview, and screen every educator who joins the Nannies on a Mission family, guiding and supporting them in the NOAM way.

Sarah recalls the moment she knew that working with children was her calling:

I was a nanny for a short time before moving to the UK to pursue my marketing career. I was excited about this next stage of life, but it wasn’t long before I realised how much I missed working with children – it turns out nannying wasn’t my hobby, it was my passion. I set my marketing aside and returned to the work I loved.

Before long, I found my services in demand across the globe, frequenting Hollywood film sets and managing elite households – a scenario I could never have imagined.

For more than twenty years, I have had the absolute pleasure of working with children and families who each hold a special place in my heart.

Now, with my return home to Tropical North Queensland and the evolution of Nannies on a Mission, I have made it my life’s purpose to support Far North families and nannies in their search for the perfect match.

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 text us with updates through out the night, which I loved!
